1Cover the bottom only of a medium or large size stock pot with water and add quartered red potatoes (do not peel potatoes) and begin cooking on med to med high heat. While the potatoes begin to cook, cut up the beef smoked sausage in bite size pieces and add to the cooking potatoes. Last, cut up the head of cabbage and add it to the pot. Cover and let simmer for about 15 to 20 mins or until potatoes and cabbage are tender. Salt and pepper to taste as this dish cooks. I personally use a generous amount of pepper in this dish as it makes it quite tasty. I also always use beef smoked sausage, it makes this dish taste the best.
