Reviews for Kielbasa Skillet Stew
"try to make with non-canned beans....too salty...possibly 1 can of tomato sauce"
"I have been making this since it was first it the magazine, it is very good, esp. on a cold winter's day. A favorite of the men in my family!"
"This was just O.K. It didn't wow me. One thing the ingredients make it pretty nutritious. Yes, I would say it is comfort food. Would I make it again, of course..."
