Kielbasa and Cabbage


I love Kielbasa and all its smokey salty yumminess (this is term I use often - not sure yumminess is actually a word though.)  We have also been cooking a lot of cabbage around here lately, it seems all of a sudden my kids have decided they like it so I try to make it as often as I can.  I will have another easy cabbage recipe for you soon.  This is a quick meal  and I love quick meals for those weeknights when I'm running the kids to after school activities.  By the time we get home I just want to throw a few ingredients into a pot and have a yummy meal.  This is one of those meals.  Enjoy!!

What you need:
1  pound  kielbasa, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick slices (I used Turkey Kielbasa)
1  medium-size cabbage (about 2 1/2 pounds), chopped into bite-size pieces
1  (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes (with green peppers and onions), undrained
1  teaspoon  salt
1/2  teaspoon  pepper

What you do:
Sauté kielbasa in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned. Remove sausage with a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels, reserving drippings in skillet. Set aside.
 Stir in cabbage; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Stir in cooked sausage, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Cook until thoroughly heated.


I served this over rice for dinner and it was great - the next day I had it alone and it was equally as tasty.

  8. Looks tasty. We use lots of cabbage in Eastern Europe. However, I don't cook cabbage often here. I will have to try it for kids since they surprise us sometimes.. you never know what mine will like. Luckily, they love row carrots, broccoli, cauliflower and spinach!!
    One of my favorite foods has cabbage in it: cabbage rolls. You have probably tried. It's a mix of ground beef and pork and rice made into balls and wrapped in cabbage leaves.
    Thanks for your recipe. I used to love sauteed cabbage as a side as a child in Georgia.

  13. Looks delish. I too love kielbasa and cabbage. I make a similar dish with an onion, a bit of brown sugar, a dash of red pepper flakes and some salt and pepper. Cooked down over a medium flame, it is a great one dish meal that everyone enjoys. I will try this recipe too, thanks so much for posting it.

  28. This is a good recipe for low carb dieting. I used turkey kielbasa, regular diced tomatoes, added onion powder and a teaspoon of raw cider vinegar. It turned out great! I love how quick and easy it was to throw together!

  29. It was wonderful!!! Think we left out tomatoes and added onion! Will tryout with tomatoes the next time!
