Sausage Soup

2 lb smoked sausage, sliced
2 cups carrots, sliced
1 cup celery, diced
4 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 tbs brown sugar
One 28 oz can tomatoes, de-seeded, chopped, and drained
2 tbs parsley, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
2 quarts rich beef stock
4 cups cabbage, shredded

Brown sausage in large stock pot and drain off fat. Add other ingredients except cabbage. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer covered for one hour. Add cabbage and cook for 15 to 20 more minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Add chopped parsley just prior to serving.

A rich beef stock is a must for this recipe. Fresh cilantro is a nice substitute for parsley.
