You could perhaps drain most of the liquid from the vegetable beef soup and it would be thicker.

You could also put in some Tabasco sauce, cilantro, ground jalapenos, and a tiny bit of curry to make it more spicy for him.

Cat, Is Carl related to the person who wrote this recipe? Their names are similar.

Just replace the turkey sausage with yours. You could replace the kale with Swiss chard or another green and add green beans and onions to include more vegetables. Hope this helps.
GG, I made that recipe last night with hot Italian sausage and it was spectacular! Thanks.
BTW, I don't like to use a crock pot, so did it on top of the stove in my enameled cast iron pot.

Good to know, thanks for reporting back! I prefer using my enameled cast iron pot for braises as well. I like to smell it as it's cooking and, except for things like pork shoulder, foods tend to dry out less using the stovetop. Maybe that's because I can check it periodically as it's cooking and control the temperature better.

Oh my! I didn't see that. No, he isn't, but that last name is quite similar!

The name on the recipe is Chris Shellenbarger, and Carl's name is Carl Schellenberger. That is a bit eerie, yes?

How interesting!

With love,
~Cat

I'll take you up on that. She lost me on her method. All that pouring water... do you use fresh water each time or are you concentrating it into a stock of sorts? And what is pork on bone? Something smoked like a ham hock or something more like fresh pork, like a country style rib?

Bigos, semi-homemade version.
It is a good winter food, don’t even come close to me with it in the summer I won’t touch it.

Pacanis, this is for you.

This is what I do.
Ingredients:
1 pack Coleslaw
sauerkraut optional
1 small or a half of a large onion diced finely
Red bell pepper also diced finely, optional (I do not like it)
2-3 hot dogs
Some ham, in my case smoked turkey
Oil or rendered bacon for frying
2-3 table spoons of ketchup or tomato sauce
Salt and Seasoning to taste

Preheat the large pan, add oil or render bacon, you do not need a lot of oil just enough to sauté onion. When onion is golden brown add coleslaw. Turn heat down and sauté slowly until it is brownish in color. Traditionally it is done with sauerkraut, I usually just add about a cup or so, depends how sour you want the end result to be. Because I did not have any last night I added a tea spoon of lemon juice to compensate for the taste.
Also when using only cabbage it might be too dry, so I had to add a table spoon or so of water during cooking, stir every once in a while. When cabbage appears done I add some ketchup and mix it in. Dice or slice the hot dogs and ham, smoked turkey in my case, add to the cabbage, mix again, cover with a lid to help hot dogs cook faster, actually I think it was polish Sausage, real hot dogs are just as good. Takes only few minutes.

I like to serve it with the side of mashed potato that cooks alongside the cabbage. I think the whole thing was done in 20 minutes or less.
Good harty multigrain bread a little bit of hot russian musturd, yum. Ok cold vodka goes really well witht hat too.

cook, recipe, sage, sausage, slow cooker

ISO: Hearty, thick, spicy sausage slow cooker recipe. HI all! I didn't think this would be a tall order, but I cannot find exactly what I'm looking for. I'm headed to Socal next week to visit my husband. You see he works out there - lives in Navy barracks, though Navy retired - and we only get to see each other and spend time together twice a year. I am so excited and will be there a month. :brows: I'm bringing his forever favorite Conecuh sausage with me (if you haven't tried it, you simply must) and want to make a good stew out of it. He loves spicy food and loves thick and hearty stews. In fact, he lives for them. We'll be in hotel rooms but we will have a crock pot to cook with and so I need it to be a slow cooker recipe. I can find "hearty" recipes but they're more like soup than stew and I can find thick recipes but they don't have sausage and then some stews are Italian/Tuscan style, which he's not interested in. I'm looking for something with vegetables as well as beans. I'm really surprised that it's so hard to find. I'm not against thickening the stew with mashed kidney beans. I say this because I make a to-die-for White Chicken Chili where I mash up the Cannellini beans and it's just so delicious and creamy. So any ideas or recipes or something? I sure hope so. I'm a little nervous about winging it because I want it to be special for him. :in_love: Thanks to anyone who can help me! 3 stars 1 reviews
