Kielbasa, Kraut and Pork Dinner

READY IN: 2hrs 50mins
Recipe by Michelle S.

This is one of my Fathers favorite meals. Please make sure you get fresh, not smoked kielbasa for this. If you cannot find the Bavarian Kraut, just use the regular and up the brown sugar by 1 tablespoon and add 1/2 t. caraway seeds. It is savory, yet a tiny bit sweet. Very satisfying and filling. It makes ALOT. I often freeze the leftover cabbage mixture in small containers to use later as topping for sauages or hot dogs, even on a rueben sandwich.

I didn't know it posted! this was very good, I think what surprised me the most was the canned potatoes, they came out crunchy outside and so creamy inside! the ONLY thing I may do differently is add the kielbasa towards the end, mine got a little mushy but overall this recipe is really good and my husband LOVED it!Thanks Michelle! P.S. use a BIG roaster!oh, I also uncovered the last 30 minutes to let everything crisp up.
