How to Make Polish Kielbasa Sauerkraut Soup
- 1Sautee onions in pan with the butter until onions are tender (don't completely brown / carmelize them).
- 2At the same time, in a pot, add potatoes and enough water to cover them about an inch over the tops of the potatoes.
- 3Add onions to potatoes. Cover and let cook for 5 minutes. In the meantime, rinse and drain your sauerkraut.
- 4Add the rest of the ingredients to the pot except for the optional ones and the salt-to-taste.
- 5Add more water to just cover all the ingredients. Cover and let cook until potatoes are tender (about 20-25 minutes).
- 6After potatoes are tender, turn off heat. Stir in salt-to-taste. Add extra pepper if you'd like.
- 7When serving, garnish top with dollop of sour cream, freshly chopped dill and/or chives, and/or parsley. Eat this soup with some good buttered polish rye bread on the side!
