Kielbasa with Peppers and Potatoes

Another one-pan dinner that warms the heart of this big dumb Polack. Easy to fix, makes enough for a crowd, and clean-up’s a snap. What’s not to like?

Kielbasa with Peppers and Potatoes

You’ll Need:
1 tablespoon neutral oil
1 (16 ounce) package smoked kielbasa sausage, diced
6 medium red potatoes, quartered
1 medium onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced

You’ll Do:
1) Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Place kielbasa, onion and potatoes in the saucepan. Cover, and cook 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender.

2) Mix red bell pepper and yellow bell pepper into the saucepan, and continue cooking 5-10 minutes, until peppers are just tender/crisp.

3) Serve.

That’s it! A crusty loaf and a hearty red vino or frosty beer to go with. Hat tip to All Recipes for the inspiration.

    Yeah Baby!!!!! Sausages and taters, pan grilled with onion and belled peppers. With a frosty Yuengling. Make a puppy pull a freight train. Put the plate on your head and you tongue will beat your brains out to get to it. You can also add and/or substitute cabbages with the taters and that is right tasty too. Had sent this dish out to a number of folks, including Baby Girl, when you had posted it a while back. It got raves all around.

    It is also a “go to dish” around an open fire camp site or grill.

    Tanks Matey. You do alright for an Aeronautically Designated Sub Hunting, Swimming Squidly type. What some may call Top Gun,err,err, Shelf. Hey don’t get you goose cooked, put it on ice, man! Mention me to SisNLaw.

  2. This one looks easy where I don’t need all kinds of seasonings which I don’t use anymore. So on my trip to Publix, I’ll just need the sausage and veggies, I still have Ex’s sausage and penne in 3 vaccum packed bags in the reefer. Best thing I did was buy an 8 In. food saver machine which fits great in the overhead kitchen cabinet.

    And for those who like to cook under pressure….

    Instant Pot Sausage, Peppers and Potatoes


    1 teaspoon oil
    1-2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
    1 bell pepper, any color
    1 can of beer or 1 cup of chicken broth
    1 smoked sausage
    1 onion, chopped
    1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt


    Start by turning your Instant Pot to saute, and then add in your oil, diced peppers, onions, and smoked sausage.
    You will want to cook this for 4-5 minutes until your sausage and peppers and onions are sauted.
    Once your meat and veggies are browned up a bit, then add in your Old Bay Seasoning, salt, and pepper. Stir well.
    Toss in your diced potatoes and stir well. Then pour in your beer or chicken broth if you would like.
    Seal the pressure cooker lid on, make sure the seal is closed. Do high pressure for 4 minutes followed by a quick release.
    Once the Instant Pot Sausage and Potatoes are done, stir, and then serve your family and friend with a hearty dish.

    We may have you on this one AW1Ed….. we are using beer for the pressure liquid and a touch of added Old Bay. I think that puts us ahead. 😉

    I find bell peppers seem bitter when cooked, although someone who is using heirloom seed descended from red peppers his 1804 great x3 grandpappy started back in them there Olden Times (when things made sense), and he says peel the peppers before you cook them.

    Even so, I might substitute another veggie for the peppers and bump up the onions. And add a nice crusty bread, as AW1Ed says and a good red vino.

    I’m glad the temps are heading downward so the stove is back in operation. This is going on the list!
    Any leftovers (which is doubtful) would work in an omelet the next day, maybe separate the potates and fry them up with a little Old Bay…
    Damnit, now I’m hungry ‘gan.

  6. Cooked up the dish earlier today, and put it in the reefer until around 5PM then made 4 portions to go into the food saver bags and then into the freezer section of the reefer. Tooth picked sampled the food as soon as I took it off of the stove.
