My dad got this recipe from a friend YEARS ago and it's a staple in my home. It's so easy and can be made last minute on the stove or prepped early and cooked on low in a crock pot.

The subtle flavor of vinegar in the beans adds a special flavor note to this soup. What a wonderful soup for a cool winter night! Serve it with a nice salad or a warm slice of cornbread. Yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1
    pkg kielbasa, smoked or polish sausage (if you want a healthier version, its fine to use turkey sausage-i do!)
  • 1
    medium onion, quartered and sliced thin
  • 3
    cans beans- any kind will do...a mix is even better (i like black eyed peas, small butter beans and either pinto or northern beans)
  • 1 Tbsp
    brown or spicy mustard
  • 1/2 to 1 Tbsp
    cider vinegar (to taste-to give it a little tang)
  • ·
    montreal steak seasoning...or salt,pepper and a little garlic powder

How to Make Super Easy Kielbasa Bean Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. slice sausage links in half lengthwise then cut into 1/2 inch chunks
  2. slice onion as indicated in ingredient list
  3. spray either crockpot or medium to large saucepan or soup pot with cooking spray; add sausage and onion
  4. pour in the beans, liquid included; add vinegar and mustard- stir to combine (if this is too sour, you can add a tiny bit of sugar to take the edge off); stir in Montreal or other seasonings
  5. add just a bit of water to make more 'stew' like but not like a brothy soup- just enough to separate the ingredients a little bit- DO NOT cover the mixture with water
  6. turn crockpot on (low if you'll be gone all day, high if you need it in a couple hours) or cook on stove-once it gets to a boiling point, turn heat down and let simmer until flavors blend...re-season to taste
  7. ** if you prefer a thicker stock once its done cooking, add a bit of cornstarch/water or use Wondra/gravy flour to thicken....Enjoy!
