This was a great recipe. I used leftover kielbasa from Easter dinner. Next time if I use leftover kielbasa, I would wait to add until last, so it won't be overcooked. Also, we love carrots, so I'd add more of them. Will definitely be making this again.

This was amazing! My Husband, who is Polish, gave his compliments to the chef! He said it reminded him of a soup he used to eat when he was little. Anyway, I followed the directions to a T and the soup came out great! Thanks!

I thought this soup was very tasty. I used 2 pounds of kielbasa and I loved the tang the vinegar gave. Unfortunately my DS 12 and DS 9 disliked it very much which is suprising since the one loves kielbasa and the other loves soup. So, not a keeper for this house, but I did enjoy it personally.

This was very good, a friend had given up a package of hot polish sausage made with pork & elk I believe & this worked well with them. The heat of the sausage was nice too so if I were to make with regular polish dogs I would probably add some red pepper flakes. Good comfort food! Thanks for posting.

Can't claim any Polish genes, but we sure loved your soup, Lorac -- right down to the buttered rye bread for dipping! When I make soup, I like to have a really full pot since it takes very little extra effort. So... besides the kielbasa, I added 1# of regular smoked sausage, used a whole head of cabbage (probably double what was called for), and was very generous with the other vegetables. To accomodate the extra volume, I increased the beef broth to 5-1/2 cups and the water to about 3-1/2 cups. Bottom line: as long as you have enough liquid to barely cover and increase the vinegar/seasonings accordingly, you can enjoy twice as much of this wonderful Polish treat!

This was delicious! I only had one pound of kielbasa so that's what I used (beef kielbasa). Also used less celery as 2 cups seemed like a lot; used a small head of cabbage so I probably used more. It is wonderful! Definitely a keeper! Thank you.

As I was putting together the ingredients for this soup I was afraid it was going to be bland. Boy was I wrong! It was excellent. I made it specifically with an elderly polish neighbor in mind, he and his wife loved it. I made it with 3lbs of kielbasa added an extra cup of broth, 1 more tablespoon of vinegar and a little more cabbage. Makes me wish I was polish and could have grown up on this kind of food.

Cooking soup with kielbasa sausage is always a hit, the sausage releases an amazing flavor creating a broth that is always a hit. Great recipe, perfect for a cool fall/winter night!

My first try at a dish I had when I was a little girl on vacation in Poland. I really enjoyed it, but the cooking time as indicated in the recipe is too long for my taste; I found the ingredients a little overcooked. I added a ripe, whole jalapeno to spice it up, and it was great! Will surely make this dish again!

I new to cooking, and tried this with a crockpot. After about two hours, the sausage was done, but the veggies weren't even close. So I went to bed! When I awoke, the whole house smelled delicious. The only problem was that the sausage was WAY overcooked. Next time, I'll slow-cook everything, and add the sausage in at the end. Otherwise it was a great dish, and my coworkers liked it (my testing ground, hehe)
