Reviews for Kielbasa Cabbage Skillet
"I have tried this receipe and it is great. I have experimented with this receipt and eliminated the tomatoe sauce and substituted grilled brats that I have cut up. I have also used this receipe with braised short ribs. I braised short ribs, removed added 1 cup dry red wine let alcohol bleed off, then added all the vegetables and sauted till tender, added remainig ingredients and the short ribs and slow baked at 375 for 4 hours depending how your stove operates. This has become our new down home meal. - JP in WY"
"Here is the way I make Kielbase and cabbage. Put I small head chopped cabbage and 4 sliced carrots and 2 potatoes cut up in pan with about 1 cup water. Cooked till vegetables are tender. Slice up sausage in about 1/2 inch thickness and brown on both sides. Put in pot with cabbage and simmer for about 20 min. Good served with corn bread."
"What happened to the potatoes.? Sounds better with out the tomatoe sauce"
"It's listed between the'3 cans(8 oz each) tomato sauce'and the '1 tablespoon paprika''1/2 cup sugar'"
"What sugar?? I don't see any sugar in this recipe."
"wow...that was quick..thanks?to both of you...I will try this dish!"
"Just leave the sugar out. It will turn out just as well."
"In response to the above comment regarding the sugar..just leave it out it will not make a difference. This is a excellent dish and I never put the sugar in it"
"This was an great dish. My family loved it."
"not enough liquid in this recipe to cook the potatoes."
"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!"
"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."
"This is one on my husband's favorite. My tip for the recipe would be to pre cook your potatoes then the timing of the orginal recipe will work."
"I have been making this recipe for years and it never fails me. It's my "go to" recipe! I've made this for camping trips, pot lucks and have it on my dinner table once a month. I find that I must double the recipe to accomodate my family of four. And leftovers are great!"
"easy & cheap 1 dish meal, tastes great!"
"This was sooooo good. Next time I will either cook the potatoes beforehand or use canned. They took waaaaaayyyy more than 30 min to be tender."
"Success at getting my kids to eat cabbage!"
"Love Love Love this recipe!!! I usually end up adding about 5 cans of tomato sauce to the mix. All the flavors blend so wonderful, and it's not too sweet for us, I add all the sugar. However, I'm sure it would taste just fine with out it in there (referring to the sugar). I've been making it since it was published in the magazine."
"I absolutely loved this recipe! I wanted more of a soup, so I changed it up a little. I added a jalepeno and a few carrots in with the cabbage and onion, then I added one more can of tomato sauce and two cans of water. I also seasoned it up with salt pepper and garlic salt. Regardless this is going to be made regularly in my house!"
"Great recipe! I definitely will make it again but would use at least 1 1/2 to 2 lbs. of kielbasa."
"I made this recipe as written until the end. I added a splash of vinegar just before serving. My family loved it. We all had seconds and there were no leftovers for my son who works second shift! Will definately make again and double so we have leftovers."
"I have made this a couple of times and we love it. I use diced tomatoes instead of the tomatoe sauce and my husband likes caraway seeds added to it."
"This was a really good new recipe to try. I was pressed for time and microwaved the potato cubes while the cabbage mixture was cooking. Turned out just fine. Much faster. Agree that it was a little too sweet. Will add less or no sugar next time."
"I tried this last night and was delighted with the results. As cabbage is sweet enough, I didn't add sugar, but did add 1/4 cp white wine and a dash of hot pepper seeds. It was delicious."
"Re: Tried this recipe this weekend. Next time, will use less sugar. Too sweet for our tastes. Agree that the 3/4 inch cubes of potatoes took about an hour to cook."
"I tried this recipe about a year ago. My husband and I thought it was great just the way it is. However, I do agree that the potatoes take a lot longer than the 30 minutes to cook. I usually cook them about an hour. I'm referring to the recipe with the tomato sauce, sugar and paprika...
" This appears to be an entirely different recipe than what mine shows, here is the recipe I got

- 3 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 3 to 4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
Directions:In a large deep skillet or Dutch oven, brown the sausage in 2 tablespoons butter; remove and set aside. In the same pan, saute the cabbage and onions in remaining butter until onions are tender.
Combine the tomato sauce, sugar and paprika; pour over cabbage mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the potatoes and reserved sausage. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Yield: 8-10 servings.
"I am sorry I would have to say definitely don't even try this recipe I just did and wasted food It is way to sweet at only 1/4 cup sugar and in no way can the potatoes cook in 30 mins. My suggestion is only use half a head cabbage and cut the sugar out and add a can of sauerkraut and cook all ingredients at the same time in a crock pot for 8 hrs that is the only way it has a chance. I would have to say this recipe is gross as listed. I tossed the whole pot."
"Would like to try, but really don't want to add the sugar...what else could be done? Don't want to use substitues either. Thanks. :)"
