A simple meal of polish sausage and cabbage cooked in a slow cooker.
Kielbasa is easy, versatile, and delicious. It's also quick to prepare because, usually, it comes fully cooked. Just reheat and serve. I love to keep some in my freezer for busy nights.

Cabbage is a natural pairing for kielbasa. Cooking cabbage makes it tender and sweet and I always sprinkle on some caraway seeds for even more flavor. I just love the simplicity of sausage and cabbage. But don't let it simplicity fool you. It's absolutely delicious.

The slow cooker makes this meal even easier. Just chop up the cabbage (I added carrots for more color) and kielbasa the night before then throw it all in a slow cooker and set on low for 6-8 hours. When you get home your house will smell amazing and dinner will be ready.

Slow Cooker Kielbasa and Cabbage
Cook time: 6-8 hrs
2 links kielbasa
1 head green cabbage
Caraway seeds to taste
1/2 cup sauerkraut and juice (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Roughly chop cabbage. Slice carrots (I used my food processor to do this quickly) with or without peel whatever you prefer. Cut sausage in 2-inch pieces (or leave whole...again whatever you like)
Place the cabbage and carrots in the bottom of a slow cooker. Sprinkle on some caraway seeds, salt, and pepper. Add sauerkraut if using (I just had some in the fridge and wanted to finish it...it does add a delightful little tang to the dish). Top with the sausage and set on low for 6-8 hours.
Makes about 4-6 servings. Serve with potatoes (you could probably add potatoes to the slow cooker but I preferred roasted), spicy mustard, and cold beer.
