Since I tried my hand at making pierogi, I also wanted to make kielbasa and sauerkraut. Being very picky, I can only get my kielbasa from a Polish store, and inevitably, I ask my best friend Debbie, to help me out with that! So we can thank her for the production of this recipe video.
I found this recipe on Food.com after searching, and I went with this one because I like the idea of having potatoes in with the kielbasa. I really enjoy my membership with them, they have tons of good recipes and even offer virtual classes. This recipe was very tasty, although not as tasty as the Russian Pierogi I just made, but it was pretty good. It was actually really easy to make, and very hands off because it ends up in the oven at a very low temperature for 3 hours. Let’s jump right in!
What you’ll need:
1/2 cup butter
1 medium onion
2 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp. Thyme leaves
1/4 teaspoon ground sage
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Three potatoes, preferably Yukon Gold/ butter potatoes
1 (16 oz) bag of sauerkraut, undrained
1-2 lbs. kielbasa, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
Products I used to prepare this recipe:
Place cold butter in pan with a diced onion and slowly bring the temperature up over medium heat. According to the recipe, this brings out the sweetness of the onions. Sauté onions for 10 minutes.
Add garlic, sauté two minutes more.
Add thyme, sage and black pepper.
Add sauerkraut to Dutch oven.
Next, add potatoes.
Finally, add your kielbasa.
Cover and bake at 225° for 3 hours.
That’s it! This recipe goes perfectly with the Russian pierogi, you should definitely check that one out!
