How to Make One Pot Meal - Cabbage, Kielbasa, Rutabaga & More
- Before getting started, clean and pare vegetables. Shallot, garlic and jalapeno small dice. Cut the carrots in thirds, *rutabaga in bite sized chunks, small red potatoes can be quartered.
Rutabaga is very hard and usually comes covered in wax. Use a sharp paring knife when cutting off the wax. When cutting into chunks, it is easier to start cutting on one side, rather than dead center. I like to cut into wide slices, then lay flat and cut into chunks.
- In a large Dutch oven, over med heat, add the 2 teaspoons of olive oil. To the heated olive oil, add the diced shallot, garlic and jalapeno, cook until the shallot is silvery looking, 3-4mins.
- Add the quartered red potatoes, stir to combine and let cook, maybe 5mins. Stirring often to keep vegetables from sticking. If need be, add about 1/2 cup of water, or broth if desired.
- Add about 1 cup of water to pot, place a vented lid on top of pot, turn burner to med low. Simmer, until vegetables are tender, and the kielbasa is nicely cooked through. Making sure the pot does not cook dry, continue to add water or broth as needed.
