This did remind me of grandma, but was better than my memories of her. Bua is the Icelandic equivalent of kielbasa & very close to it in taste. Larger than kielbasa, I cut it in approx 1.5 in chunks, added garlic as a pers pref & otherwise made the recipe as written (altho I admit to tossing in a few red potatoes to comply w/Icelandic law requiring them w/all meals). The crock-pot method makes getting this to the table nearly effortless & you are impatient for it as the aroma is wonderful. The cabbage flavour is excellent using Dijon for the mustard & I could not bear discarding the tasty liquid, so I added about 1/2 cup cream cheese to it & sent it to the table as a light sauce for the potatoes. Thx for sharing this keeper recipe w/us. :-)
We had this for dinner tonight and loved the ease of the recipe. For us, 8 hours was too long - the veggies were over done. Next time I will probably cook 6 to 7 hours. I cut my meat into slices verses chunks. I will defintely make again. Thanks for posting.
Fantastic and yummy recipe. I added some perogis the last hour of cooking as well as a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes. <br/>This recipe is a keeper.<br/><br/>Thanks for posting. NE Lady
This is a low-carb version of my Mom's Polish Stew. The addition of chicken broth brought the recipe to another level. I did add about 2 oz of Velveeta to the pot about an hour before it was done.
My HB didn't think he would like it, but ended up getting a second serving. I made 1 change I didn't have brown mustard, so I empravised with some spicy mustard with mustard seed I had on hand. It turned out great with a little kick to it!
I needed to use up some cabbage and this hit the spot. I used dijon (didn't have brown mustard) and added some hot sauce to the crockpot. It was very good.
This was very well received in my home! my nieces boyfriend had thirds! I added crushed red pepper flakes and a bit more salt and found this to be very satisfying and it smelled very good cooking all day too! I will make this many times again i'm sure. Oh I did add small red potatoes that I quartered.
I made this for a Church Dinner and everyone loved it, even ones whom don't care for cabbage. I did do a few things different though. I fried some bacon with onions, garlic, pepper flakes, then the kielbasa, then followed recipe as printed. So "YUMMY"! Thanks for the recipe!
Excellent recipe. I put in more mustard than the recipe calls for. I love this recipe and I'm not a fan of mustard or cabbage. Made it for my neighbor and fell in love with it. I make some pierogies on the side for those who want them. My slow cooker takes about 5-6 hours.Made this dish many times. Kudos.
Very easy and good. I used spicy Irish mustard and served with basalmic vinegar.
