Cabbage Kielbasa Supper

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 8 hours


6-8 servings

If you're a fan of German food, you'll enjoy this traditional combination of sausage, cabbage and potatoes from Margery Bryan. "This hearty main dish is so good," says the Royal City, Washington reader. "All you need is a bowl of fruit and dinner's ready."


  • 8 cups coarsely shredded cabbage
  • 3 medium potatoes, cubed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 2 pounds smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage, cut into serving-size pieces


  1. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the cabbage, potatoes, onion, salt and pepper. Pour broth over vegetables. Top with kielbasa (slow cooker will be full, but cabbage will cook down).
  2. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until vegetables are tender.

    Used this recipe as a base. Made it on the stove top since I didn't have enough time to make it in the slow cooker. Also, used spaghetti sauce instead of V8, since I had some in the fridge that needed to be used up. I also added garlic and paprika, as others have. I cut back on the chicken broth, because I only had 1/2 c., but it was fine, because of the spaghetti sauce. I also browned the smoked sausage before adding to pot, and then once I had it boiling, I turned the heat down to simmered and put the lid on the pot for about an hour. Potatoes were perfect and it all tasted so well! We each had 2 helpings! I used red potatoes, peeled and cubed, because they hold their shape better in something like this.

    In 15 minutes, this cooked to perfection in my electric pressure cooker. I used stock I made with leftover holiday turkey in combination with V8 juice. Incredible flavor!

    Very homestyle comfort food but I usedV-8 instead of chicken broth. This is perfect on a cold winter night and so easy to prepare.
