So, you’re probably wondering what the short cut is in this recipe. Hmm, you’ll find out below.
This recipe takes about as long as my One Pot Jambalaya with Shrimp and Andouille Sausage and has a similar make up. Both recipes have a type of sausage, starch, and vegetable. Both are one pot all-in-one meals. Pin both! Oh, how I love Pinterest!
My husband loves this hearty One Pot Turkey Kielbasa, Red Potato and Fried Cabbage and yours probably will too.
How to make One Pot Turkey Kielbasa, Red Potato and Fried Cabbage
This delicious recipe only takes about 30 min to cook and 10 min to prep! The full recipe is at the bottom of this post. Of course, you can substitute any kielbasa or even sausage for this recipe.
First, cut up the kielbasa into 1/2 inch thickness pieces using a sharp knife. Then cut the washed, red potatoes with skin on into 1 inch cubes.
Second, add olive oil and butter to a large skillet. When the butter melts, add diced onions.
Third, add a bag of Dole Cole Slaw mix, cover and cook a few minutes longer. This is the short cut. You don’t have to wash and cut up cabbage. Plus you don’t have to buy a whole head of cabbage.
Sometimes, Cole Slaw mix is on sale for only one dollar! You also don’t have to peel potatoes. Another time saver.
Next, add the red potatoes, kielbasa, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cook another 25 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.
This One Pot Turkey Kielbasa, Red Potato and Fried Cabbage comfort meal recipe has a protein, starch and vegetable making it a well-rounded meal-in-one! Furthermore, it may be a sneaky way to get your kids to eat cabbage.
