Kielbasa is one of my favorite ingredients to cook with since it is delicious and very simple. I would normally use turkey kielbasa instead of pork though to cut some calories. I will be making this dish some time soon.
2 pounds fully cooked polska kielbasa, cut in half lengthwise, then cut into 2 inch pieces
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 head cabbage, coarsely chopped
1 large sweet onion, cut into large pieces
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons dijon or brown grainy mustard
Heat olive oil in a large nonstick sauté pan over medium-high and add kielbasa. Cook, without stirring for 1 minute. Then stir occasionally for about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon.
In the same pan with some of the rendered kielbasa fat, add the cabbage, onion, garlic, sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Mix in the vinegar and mustard; add the sausage back to the pan and cook for another 2 minutes to heat through. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary.
Serve immediately on its own or over mashed potatoes.

Authentic Siberian Borscht based on my family's recipe
This one is special. I grew up on borsch and to this day I get regular cravings for it. Whenever I try to search for it though, I can never find the authentic taste my father used to make back in Siberia. The recipe below is directly derived from my dad’s and mom’s cooking. The […]
Buttered Shrimp Dampa Style - seems to be most popular recipe on my blog!
I just made this and it does deserve a mention. It had originally caught my eye due to the weirdness of the orange soda in the recipe, but now that i tried it, the taste of soda is very subtle – just gives the dish a bit of a sweet flavor (not overwhelmingly so though). […]
