How to Make Fried Cabbage and Kielbasa


  1. Chop up the kielbasa and place in pam sprayed cast iron skillet or whatever pan you use. Turn to medium heat and stir occasionally to brown on all sides.
  2. While meat cooking chop up the all other ingredients and place in another skillet to cook. Add the butter to this skillet and coat all the veggies.
  3. Turn the heat to medium and add the salt, pepper and other spices, stirring to mix it all over the veggies.Stir often so it won't burn. When done, add to the kielbasa and mix well, cooking on medium heat about five minutes longer to mix all the flavors together.
  4. Serve with cottage cheese and tomato salad with a roll. The flavor between the cold salad and hot main dish is terrific. Add my whole wheat cranberry, pecan muffin and you have a complete coarse for supper. As always, you may not always use same amount of spices as I do. Taste as you cook..
