I married a Ukrainian and he loves kielbasa and kraut , so about 30 years ago I wanted to make something for him but wouldn't take to long and came up with this recipe, Its so delicious! I use the fatback but you can dice up 2 strips of bacon an cook to get the same affect. Its a definite favorite, I make it with an without the vodka!
