My mother would make this because it is easy, fast, cheap and filling...not to mention good. It is called Polish stew because of the kielbasa, or Polish sausage.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 medium red potatoes, cut into 1-2-inch chunks (either peeled or not, your preference)
  • 1 (16 ounce) package polska kielbasa, cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans green beans (i use all low-sodium vegetables)
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can corn
  • 1 tablespoon onion flakes (optional) or 12 small onion, diced (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)


  1. In a dutch oven, add all ingredients in order(do not drain your vegetables).
  2. Cover and put on stove top on medium-high until begins to boil.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and stir occasionally.
  4. It is finished when the potatoes are tender (about 1/2 hour-sometimes less, sometimes more depending on the stove top).

I made some substitutions to this to suit our tastes, i.e. smoked turkey sausage instead of kielbasa and added a can of cream corn after stew boiled. My family loved this including my 16 mo. old grand daughter.
