I added three or four dabs of butter to my plate, and salt and pepper like it was going out of style. I also kept most of the skin on my Yukon Gold potatoes (just because I like it). Let me tell you, those Russian peasants were on to something. Chop, chop, chop. Boil, boil, boil. Eat, drink, and be sleepy. Keep life simple. Thanks, Molly. I can't wait to try your Great-Grandfather's Beef Stroganoff!

We sometimes tend to forget that simple recipes can be the greatest. This is one example. Very good.

This was really, really good!. I added lots of pepper and salt and did the butter thing and my family loved it, I love easy, simple things that taste like much more work than it was.. I will for sure make this again. Thank you;)

My Ukrainian mom used make it just like this! She would use any leftovers the next day and scramble them in eggs. Real comfort food!

Great meal. So extremely simple and even better tasting. I added salt, pepper, and a few dashes of hot red pepper flakes. I also used smoked kielbasa. The flavor was soooooo good. This will be a regular dinner around here now. THANKS!!

I make this with red cabbage, add some sliced apple and a bit of red wine vinegar. Delicious.

Good comfort food! An onion was added to the potatoes and I saved that delicious broth. Each of us spooned some over the smashed potatoes on our plates, along with butter, salt and pepper...delicious!

My husband, a Texan, had never had fresh kielbasa, hates cabbage, and generally was sceptical. He ate it all, as did my 2 year old. Thanks!
