Winter Stew Delight!
This recipe was stolen from Emily! THANK YOU EMILY! This was sooo yummy. My husband told me to put it in rotation. :)

1 small head cabbage, chopped (or I just buy the bag, already shredded)
4 medium onions, diced
4 medium potatoes, diced
1 28-ounce can tomatoes, diced
1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced
2 pounds Italian sausage (I used the Applegate turkey sausage)
4 cups beef or chicken broth (I do 2 cups of each)
1 cup tomato juice
1 15-ounce can beans (kidney, black or pinto)
salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large, oven proof stew pot. Cover and bake 1.5-2 hours until tender, stirring occasionally. If necessary, add more broth or tomato juice. You can also season with chopped basil, sage or chives. This recipe makes several gallons of stew, which freezes really well.

For some reason, my stew required an extra hour on the stove top. The potatoes needed a little more time to soften. Enjoy!
