Kielbasa and Sauerkraut

One of my favorite dishes growing up was Kielbasa and Sauerkraut. I add half a teaspoon of honey to cut through some of the bitterness and the caramelized onions help with that too. Fermented food is so good for you and I used turkey kielbasa, which has half the calories of beef or pork. It was a delicious, hearty dinner that cost around $0.50 per serving.

2 cups Kielbasa; thickly sliced

1 large Carrot; chopped

1 cup Red Potatoes; cubed

1 cup Onion; chopped

½ cup Red Cabbage; thinly sliced

2 cups Sauerkraut; drained

½ teaspoon Honey

½ teaspoon Garlic Powder

Salt and Pepper to taste

  1. Add 1” of water to a small pot with a steamer basket. Steam the carrots and potatoes until tender; about 8 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the kielbasa, stirring frequently until the edges are caramelized. Add the onions and red cabbage to the skillet and sauté until tender.
  3. Add the cabbage, honey, garlic powder, salt and pepper to the skillet and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until the heated through.
  4. Enjoy!
