This was great! Normally I am not a fan of Kielbasa, but this rocked me out of that!
As I was making this, I was worried my family would think it was too heavy. All 5 members loved it! I served sauerkraut on the side since half of us love it and half don't. Next time I'll find a bigger skillet, too. I'll make this for our cold weather camping trip coming up.
Just made this for a friend for lunch today and am taking it over. I'm house sitting for a friend in St. Pete FL, 1 hour north from me and my friends husband is ill, so they normally eat a big lunch and no dinner and they love this type of meal. I saw it the other day and it looked really good. Overall very impressed. NO way on the broccoli, it doesn't go with the texture or taste for me so I didn't use that. I didn't use canned sauerkraut either, but used a really good fresh kraut from my deli, 45 cents more, but oh so worth it. And, I did add some fresh thyme, parsley, a bay leaf (I am big on seasoning). I also added a pinch of red pepper flakes, only because the guys I am cooking for love spice (even though they shouldn't eat it). Also because no broccoli, I did add 3 more potatoes to make it really hearty. Great dish, enjoyed very much!
This is a great recipe for a chilly autumn day. I love this type of recipe, as it lends itself so well to different tastes and variations. I left out the celery, and instead, added a chopped green bell pepper and a can of diced tomatoes. I also think that this would be great with green beans instead of broccoli. I served it with cornbread and fresh fruit.
My husband and I made this last night for supper and it was delicious! We made a couple adjustments for our taste. I am not a big fan of kielbasa, so we just used polish sausage instead. We also used a few more potatoes and only about 4 carrots. I thought it was a little greasy and may leave the butter out next time, although my husband said for me not to because he really liked it that way.
