Also it is the day before payday. So while the cupboard is not bare, I may be low on some food stuffs.
When I find Kielbasa at a good price I stock up. The last trip to the grocer this was the case. Today, is another favorite meal of the family that I don't have a written recipe for.
This fast and delicious. It also smells wonderful cooking.
List of ingredients from the pantry:
Chicken stock 1 box, (canned needs to have water equal to the recipe, 1can broth,1can water)*
green beans 1 can
small head of cabbage (quartered)
1 medium onion (chopped)
tablespoon of oil
From your spice cabinet:
Salt 1/2 tsp
pepper 1 tsp
red pepper flakes 1/4 tsp or to taste
caraway seeds 1/2 tsp
1 small clove of garlic minced
From the freezer
Additions to the pot if you have them on hand. ( 1 tablespoon Brown Mustard,and a bottle of beer).
preheat your oven to 350
In a dutch oven that can go from the stove top to the oven, brown the kielbasa lightly in the heated oil.
3 minutes to each side. Add the onion and cabbage cook for 5 minutes. Add the potatoes and green bean Season with salt, pepper,red pepper flakes,garlic and caraway. Pour the box of chicken broth over the top of the ingredients in the pot. (if desired you may add the beer now.)Simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes. You may add the brown mustard before placing it in the oven stirring it in well. Cover the dutch oven and place in heated oven. Bake for 45 minutes, uncover and bake for 15-20 minute more.
I serve with a crusty loaf of bread
This come for my Aunt Pearlie in Cleveland Ohio. Cleveland has a large Polish population and she told my Mother one of her friends gave her the recipe for it. Auntie Pearlie on a trip in to West Virginia made this and my Mother watched her put the recipe together. Later on I called my Mother and she talked the recipe through to me on the phone. This is versatile as you can add carrots,canned tomato and brown sugar to it as well. It depends on my mood and my pantry what goes in. If I want to carb load...;) I serve with some homemade mac and cheese.
