"I'm not a great lover of kielbasa however I loved this recipe! The cabbage helped soften the salty flavor. This is a keeper."

"Excellent and easy. I used more cabbage (we really like cabbage) and poured some home made Habenero/Jalepeno salsa over , stirred and lapped it up .Certainly a KEEPER. I forgot to say I used Smoked Turkey Sausage to cut fat"

"Quick, easy and delicious. 20 minutes with the skillet. We ate it with mashed potatoes and carrots and it was perfect. I thought it would be blander (and I think some might like to add more spice of something I guess), but the flavors of the kielbasa and chicken broth saute nicely with the cabbage and salt and pepper. You really don't need much more."
