Reviews for Kielbasa Cabbage Skillet
"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."
"Not a fan....didn't like the sweet!"
"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."
"Made this recipe late night everyone loved it. The only changes I made where I added 1tablespoons garlic power, 1teaspoon salt and pepper and 2 tablespoon A1 sauce and smoked paprika. Really good with sweet Hawaiian rolls."
"My husband said this is one of new favorite dishes! And I loved it too. Definitely a "make again" recipe!"
"I precook the potatoes a couple minutes in the microwave; it cuts down on the cooking time."
"I precook my potates in the microwave a couple minutes; 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."
"Didn't find a fault with this recipe as much as it just wasn't our family's cup of tea, so to speak."
