All winter long is the only time we make homemade soups,beans,stews.
We've never done anything different with Polska Kielbasa than with sauerkraut and onions.
Now that my Husband is retired,he does most of the cooking and came up with what was in the cupboard on hand to make this Polska Kielbasa Stew.
I take a cup of it with Oyster Crackers to work until it is gone.
We hope you like it.
