To me, a "one pot meal" means simple, quick and that "go to" meal you make when you have had a long day or you just don't feel like cooking a big complicated meal. I like the idea of a quick clean up too after a long day, so the idea of just one pot to clean can be very appealing.
I say "pick your pot" because it can be made either in a stock pot, a pressure cooker or a slow cooker, all with wonderful results.
2 pounds cased sausage (your preference, even meatless sausage works well for this) sliced in 1 inch pieces
1 pound potatoes - peeled and diced
1 pound carrot
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons ground pepper
enough water to cover
1 head of cabbage
**I have to give my mom the credit here since this is actually derived from a dish she made our family when I was younger. I didn't know the exact recipe, so I did some ad-libbing and came up with something my family really enjoys. It's easy to make with or without a pressure cooker, and really takes about the same amount of time either way. Something I love about this dish is that you can make a vegetarian version that taste great!
Step 1: Prep the Veggies and Sausage
Peel and wash all your veggies.
Slice the carrots into 1/2 inch pieces
Dice the potatoes into 1 inch squares
Slice sausage into about 1/2 inch pieces
**Remember keeping all your pieces sliced in uniform pieces will help them all cook at the same rate. **
