"This recipe works well for many occasions. This is also the type of recipe that you can add to or build on to make your own. If you aren't too crazy about the taste of cabbage, keep in mind that the onion, bacon drippings, and kielbasa seems to tone down that cabbage-y taste a bit, and you can also add other things or spices to tone it down."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

salt and ground black pepper to taste

kielbasa sausage, sliced thin
You can make it your own by draining the grease after cooking the Sausage first, but I think the grease adds flavor to the dish. Thank you guys for voting and for your reviews. I would add a photo, if I could but it won't allow my photo for some reason.
We've made this for years. Always cooked the kielbasa first so I could drain the grease, blot the pan w/paper towels to get rid of the grease but keep the brown bits. I use red cabbage - they say it tastes better. We like our cabbage crunchy so we fry it no more than 20 min. If we have them, we add a chopped apple to the cabbage, then add kielbasa & bacon to warm. Fantastic quick meal. Stars are for as written.
This is a simple, humble meal that is a “must eat” if you love fried cabbage and kielbasa as much as I do. Serving the two together is a bonus! I like this recipe because it‘s pretty bare bones, which is generally my preference with cooking and with seasoning. If you’re working with good ingredients they don’t require a lot of camouflage. At the submitter’s suggestion, I did “build” on this to “make it my own.” First, I used our Milwaukee’s Usinger’s fresh Polska Kielbasa, the very best. (As opposed to fully cooked smoked kielbasa which is also very good! I usually like a mix of both, truth be told) I cooked and browned it in advance, refrigerating it until I was ready to put the dish together. I did add minced garlic along with the onion. When cooking the cabbage I helped it along with a little water and covered it for a bit. With the cabbage cooked and the fresh kielbasa cooked, ready and waiting, all I did was combine the two and heat it through, the one hour simmering time, in my view, not only unnecessary but quite possibly even counterproductive. Tiny boiled red potatoes with butter and parsley rounded the meal out nicely.
this was good! read reviews so I drain most of bacon grease ... will did cook again!
Made this today. Only change was I added 2 finely grated carrots because we like carrots in sauerkraut so I wanted to see how it went with this recipe. 100% hit with the entire family. For the person who had to much liquid...just reduce it...flavor is enhanced
This was great! Kids and hubby cleaned their dishes! Cut the recipe in half because I was nervous, bad idea! We all were looking for seconds! Thank you for sharing!
My fiancee` and I loved this! I did make a few changes - instead of using bacon, I just used pork sausage links. I sautéed the cabbage in the sausage drippings once the pork sausage was done. I also added garlic seasoning and diced tomatoes. It didn't take as long to prepare since I cut out the bacon.??
I am sorry. I followed the recipe exactly. The result was that the mixture was steamed
and produced a lot of liquid which made the bacon soggy.The results for me was not so much fried, but more like moist and soupy. Thank you
for the recipe to try.
