Ever since I made my version of Kielbasa Stew from the recipe at La Mia Cucina, I’ve been dying to try out a version that used different types of sausage. Knowing that, I suppose it was somewhat advantageous that a tummy bug caught hold of me earlier this week, and that a good soup was the only thing on my mind. It was also fortunate that even though it was the day before payday, I had everything I needed in the larder to whip up a soup.
You keep calling it a soup. I thought the recipe was for sausage stew?
OK, you got me. It is a stew, but only in light of the absolutely outrageous amount of meat and chunky veggies it contains, and the fact that they were stewed. Usually I would have made a roux before adding the stock, but as I said, I was having tummy trouble, so I avoided thickening the broth at all.

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:
I would have added more of the chili paste. Aside from that this came out fantastically.
I’m still on my first cup of coffee this morning, but your stew/soup – stoup? has me drooling! Way to go, Jerry! We’ll be tryin’ this one, for sure =)
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. I’ll probably be making it again soon with some spicy sausage and a bit of an asian flair ;)
We are having a birthday party at work Monday for a co-worker, and everyone is bringing something for lunch, kind of a buffet. Previously I have brought chicken soup, and beef stew, and people have asked for both this time. But, always looking for something new, I have decided I will make this tomorrow. Man, this really looks and sounds great! If you get this before I start cooking tomorrow, can you let me know what a ‘head’ of garlic is? Am I supposed to use the whole bulb? If so, YOU ROCK!!!
I love it when I make these types of soups, so easy and quick to make and generally it’s easy to find all of the things that you need in the cupboards. I like experimenting with different types of things, and I’ll be sure to try this receipe.
Hey there! Been a while, but with the recent passing of Jimmy Dean, I bought several 1 pound rolls of sausage. While trying to think of how to honor him, I remembered this recipe. Only change is, right now, some of the veggies are hard to get a hold of in decent shape. So, I made some slight changes by adding diced potatoes during the same step as adding the stock. (I only had one good yellow squash, so the volume balanced out.) And, I also added two small cans of mushrooms. Wow, did this turn out great! That’s why I love this recipe, you can change and add and subtract stuff and it still comes out awesome! Thanks!!!
That’s the joy of any recipe! All of them can be changed up to fit what you have on hand. Every dish can and should be an expression of the cook that made it, not the recipe it came from
