One-Pot Kielbasa and Cabbage Skillet

Well here’s a quick Friday night recipe, as I will be going to my FOURTH exercise class in the morning (along with my daughter, she signed up YAY!) and then I’ll be busy making lists and packing to bring our boat to the coast on Sunday, staying until Tuesday. We’ll be pulling in the RV from higher ground that’s parked up the street down there away from the flood zone, and assessing the damage from the winter flooding. We already found out our nice deck hubby built 4th of July last year got washed away in the flooding. Boo hiss!

RV Deck that Washed Away

RV Deck that Washed Away

It was a day or so work for my hubby, and the majority of the wood was the other half of our 20-foot dock in the river that kept breaking in half, and this half had been sitting around upside down on the property for over 6 years. From what we hear, the other 10-foot dock is still on the property, whew! So it wasn’t a huge loss, except we had strapped down a plastic storage shed to the top of it that contained our crab propane pot and burner and my crawdad pot, among other things. I was able to replace the crab propane pot and unit with one on on half-price at Ace Hardware. Still have to replace my crawdad pot. I have no idea what else was in there until we get down there. I should take a picture of contents of everything before we pull out each year!

But, life goes on. I’m ready to go unplugged again for awhile, my fave time of year! (No internet, cell, or TV service over there, darn. LOL.) Don’t worry, I’ll be checking in occasionally and trying to post somewhat weekly in the meantime in between my real job. Enjoy the recipe!

One-Pot Kielbasa and Cabbage Skillet

7 ounces cooked kielbasa sausage, turkey or otherwise (Half a horseshoe). Freeze the other half for future use
1 tablespoon bacon grease (or substitute oil of choice)
1/2 head small cabbage, coarsely chopped
1/2 large red (or sweet yellow or both) onion, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic (or two cloves minced)
Ground black pepper, to taste
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons white vinegar plus a few tablespoons of water, as needed
1 teaspoon spicy or grainy brown or Dijon mustard
Cooked mashed potatoes, for serving (optional)

Sausage and Cabbage Skillet Ingredients

Sausage and Cabbage Skillet Ingredients

Slice kielbasa into rounds in your size of choice. Heat bacon grease (or oil) in a large nonstick skillet over mediumΒ­high. Add kielbasa, chopped cabbage, chopped onion, minced garlic, and ground black pepper, to taste. Stir to combine, and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes until sausage is browned and cabbage is starting to wilt, stirring occasionally. (I actually added the cabbage a bit later but adjust accordingly.)

Cooking the Kielbasa and Veggies

Cooking the Kielbasa and Veggies

Mix in the sugar, vinegar, and mustard, then cook and stir for a minute or so. Reduce heat a bit, then add a couple of tablespoons of water and cover to help steam the cabbage. Continue to cook covered, until cabbage is done to your liking, adding additional water as needed.

Uncover, remove from heat, and serve immediately over mashed potatoes or other grain/starch of choice, which is optional. I reheated some leftover potatoes.

    Yum! I’m all for one-pot meals, Kathryn. The less clean-up the better!
    Good golly Miss Molly! That sure must have been some flooding… I’m sorry to hear that, especially the nice deck. Such a huge amount of labor lost. Well enjoy your unplugged time to the utmost. Mega hugs! (Hey, I have an interview on Monday, for a job with my current agency, in Dallas. Wish me luck!)

        Thanks Kathryn and Suzanne. I couldn’t very well put it as the reason on my blog, since my boss might see it! So I apologize for sort of hijacking your blog. ^^’ I’ve also been asked to speak at a big conference on Wednesday — totally out of the blue. So maybe things are finally starting to go right after 4 years of wrong. Huge hugs to you both!

        Hey no worries at all, hijack away Teagan! I am very excited for you! I’m still catching up on my readerboard, I’m still on Friday posts, lol. Did I miss the train this morning? While I was scrolling down to find my last read post, I don’t recall seeing your blog. EDIT: Oops, I found it! I see you need to take a break to get ready for all this exciting work stuff coming up!

      The spicy vinegar sounds like a great tip, thanks Adam, I’ll have to try it. Nahh, I won’t be too much of a stranger. It’s too hard for me to stay away from the world for too long. πŸ™‚

    Sorry to hear about the flooding and the damage, but you have a great attitude, Kathryn. No complaining is going to fix anything and vacations are precious, so enjoy. The no-technology break is a delight and important for family-time. Have fun. Oh, and the recipe looks awesome too πŸ˜€

    Great recipe and what a PERFECT getaway you have! It is so important to unplug and unwind. I can’t wait until summer when I can do that more formally myself. Also, great work with the exercise classes – I also find its easier to go with others. πŸ™‚

    Looks like a great way to serve kielbasa. Have you ever tried mixing fried cabbage in with your mashed potatoes? It is an Irish dish called colcannon and is delicious. I sometimes make it to serve alongside of grilled kielbasa, which is not too far a stretch from your dish!
