"I really like the unique flavor combination of this recipe with the vinegar, mustard and sugar. However, the recipe is wrong on the potatoes. I've made this recipe in three different locations (read: three different microwaves), and the potatoes are still completely raw and hard after 3-4 minutes. I've never had it take less than three four minute bouts in the microwave, stirring after each."

"I cooked the diced potato in the skillet until almost soft instead of microwaving. Added some salt and pepper.

I also added 3 garlic cloves, and 2tbs of butter with the onions. Amazing! Will definitely make again"

"I was looking for something different to do with kielbasa. I doubled the ingredients and the only change I made was to add a chopped red pepper and omitted the thyme. It was really good. The sauce pulled it all together. I'm definitely going to make this again."

"This is one of our favorites. We normally omit the bacon and thyme. Skip microwaving the potatoes and just cook them in the skillet first with a little oil or butter (just enough to keep them from sticking) When they are almost done, add kielbasa and onion and proceed per recipe. Also you do need to season the potatoes with a little salt and pepper. I use either spinach, swiss chard, or mustard greens - depending on what I have ready from the garden!

We never have leftovers!"
