One-Dish Kielbasa, Green Beans & Potatoes

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This is a quick and easy one-dish meal that I concocted one hectic Christmas shopping/baking season when it seemed we were eating takeout all the time. My kids loved it and I've been making it ever since. I only listed this as 4 servings because everyone usually has seconds.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut kielbasa into 1" chunks and place in Dutch oven or large pan.
  2. Add enough water to completely cover the meat and cook on high till it comes to a boil.
  3. Meanwhile, peel potatoes and the onion, and cut into eighths; drain the green beans.
  4. Let kielbasa boil for 2 minutes to extract the grease.
  5. Lower the heat and skim off all grease and foam; discard.
  6. Turn heat to high again and add vegetables, chicken broth and seasonings to pot; stir to combine.
  7. If necessary, add enough water to bring the liquid level to about 1" below top of the ingredients.
  8. Bring to a boil; lower heat to simmer and cover.
  9. Cook for 20 minutes.
  10. Serve in soup bowls with crusty bread, which is delicious dipped into the broth.
  11. NOTE: If frozen green beans are used, put them in with the kielbasa to cook for 7 extra minutes before adding the potatoes and onion; then cook for 20 more minutes.

Very tasty and easy. I used canned green beans (using the liquid from one can). I used seasoned salt and a few shakes of garlic powder. I used red potatoes so I didn't have to peel (yay!). I also cooked this until the potatoes were soft enough to thicken the liquid some. I didn't use chicken broth; I just threw a chicken bouillon cube into the water as it cooked.

I make a very similar dish, only without the broth, I just use a little of the liquid one of the cans of green beans. Also, I use turkey smoked sausage, that way I don't have to drain the grease. saves a step, healthier, and tastes great. This dish works well in the crockpot too.
