Slice your vegetables, add your sausage, and let your oven do the rest! This made our house smell soooo good! It is a tasty, comforting, winter dinner. The combination of cabbage, potatoes, carrots and mushroom sauce is just so yummy! I never realized how good cabbage was.:)

These meals are intended to be a relatively simple and healthy weeknight meal for a family of four. We assume that these dinners are being made in a kitchen stocked with regular kitchen staples. We will not include prices of oil, sugar, flour, spices, etc. unless you need a 1/4 cup or more. Regional food prices may vary and can be reduced by smart shopping techniques.
This is a quick and easy weeknight meal that my whole family likes. It is inspired by a recipe of my mother's.
|1 turkey (or regular) kielbasa or sausage||$2.50|
|2 to 3 potatoes||$1.50|
|1 lb. baby carrots, or 2 carrots, cut up||$2.00|
|1 medium onion (use 1/2 onion if large)||$.99|
|2 to 3 cloves of garlic||$.50|
|Total Cost = $7.49|
Chop onion and mince or press garlic. When the kielbasa is browned, remove from pan and add enough oil to equal about 1 Tbps (this may be unnecessary if you used regular kielbasa). Saute onions and garlic until soft, about 5 minutes. Add water and scrape bottom of pan to release browned bits. The potatoes and carrots are usually ready to go at this time.
Dump steamed veggies and the steaming liquid into saucepan with onions, etc. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Allow to thicken slightly then add kielbasa, 1 to 2 dashes of Worchestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp. thyme and Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper. Reduce heat, cover and allow to "stew" for as long as you need, at least 10 minutes. I usually serve it with a crusty bread that I heat up at this time. If there is any left, it makes a great work lunch the next day. Start to finish, this shouldn't take more than a half an hour.
This stew is delicious and easy to make.
In a large saucepan, combine the first eight ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the cabbage; cover and cook for 10 minutes.
This is a guide about Mama Sue's sausage stew. This quick and easy stew is hearty enough for a chilly fall evening or anytime. It is also easy on your pocket.
