I wanted something SPICY, and wanted something with CABBAGE to go along with a pan of southern cornbread. I had a pound of POLISKA KIELBASA (fully cooked) sausage, some carrots and Jalapeno pepper, in the frig. So I made this SPICY SAUSAGE CABBAGE STEW!!!!

  1. We start by getting all ingredients together.

  3. Take 1 tablespoon of olive oil and pour into a cast iron Dutch oven. Place on burner and cook on medium to medium high heat. Take your Polisha Kielbasa sausage and slice it into bite size pieces. Place into the pot.

    Put 1 teaspoon of minced garlic into pot with the sausage and stir.
  4. Take your Jalapeno peppers and wash and remove seeds and dice. (Use rubber gloves while chopping and handling Jalapenos.)
  5. Place diced Jalapenos in the pot with the sausage and garlic. Stir.
  6. Take the carrots, wash and peel, and slice them into bite size pieces.
  7. Place the carrots into pot with the sausage, garlic and Jalapenos. Stir.
