Kielbasa and Kidney Beans

"This hearty meal-in-one is one of my family's favorites," notes Doreen Kelly of Roslyn, Pennsylvania. "It keeps well in a slow cooker as I'm often asked to bring it to gatherings."

    This was super quick, easy and delicious! I added a can of diced tomatoes and about 1/2 Tbs cumin. Served it over rice.

    I wanted to make this today but had no steak sauce. I subbed prepared BBQ sauce instead and I thought it was just as tasty. One of my favorite recipes for using kielbasa, but have made it in the past with smoked sausage and that's good too.

    I have made this many times now and love it as a quick easy meal. I have used potatoes instead of the beans and tastes great that way too! I double the sauce each time and use less brown sugar than is called for.

    A very satisfying dish for a busy day. Next time I will use a little less sugar, just personal taste.

    Super easy and fast. Could substitute any kind of sausage or even use chicken. A little sweet for me but that can also be changed. Definitely serve over rice.

    Very, Very tasty. Even my 1 yr. old ate it up. We also served it over rice to make it a heartier meal.

    I think the steak sauce gives it a little zip. Love the recipe because it is quick and flavorful.

    We loved this recipe!! It is so good and so simple to make! I served it over white rice and my husband and I loved it! I will definitely be making this one again.
