Spicy kielbasa sausage and plentiful cabbage and potatoes give this dish a pleasing, Old World flair. My husband never liked cabbage before I made this, but now he does! —Romaine Wetzel, Ronks, Pennsylvania

"My family did not enjoy this recipe. It's grossly sweet taste overwhelms everything else. Very disappointed. It should not be called a 'skillet' meal when it is prepared in a dutch oven."

"Good dinner with homemade bread. As others noted, the potatoes did take quite a bit longer to cook, but it was worth the wait. We added salt and pepper which helped offset the overly sweet flavor."

"I precook the potatoes a couple minutes in the microwave; it cuts down on the cooking time."

"Our family loves this dish. I make it a few times a month. When I make it I double the recipe and I used canned diced potatoes instead."

"Great flavor, but too much cabbage. Next time I'll add more sausage and less cabbage. Brown onions with sausage, then add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 30-45 min."
