#Oneskillet #Kielbasa, Green #Beans & #Potatoes

Kielbasa is a favorite of my son and husband, secretly I have wondered if they both have Polish bloodlines. They love it so much. It’s the wonder meat on crazy nights and seemly goes well with so many things thankfully. You honestly can’t go wrong with a good Polish Smoked Sausage (Kielbasa) and potatoes together, and the flavors seem to enhance one another so well.

Sometimes I want to get dinner accomplished and relax after a hard day at work; I don’t feel like cleaning a pile of dishes or scouring pots and pans. In my book,  you can quickly satisfy comfort food cravings with easy one-skillet meals and still come out smelling like a rose by tossing all your ingredients into a single skillet, and you have no-stress, no-mess recipes for any night of the week. Dinner doesn’t get much easier or become more convenient than this, so grab that Cast iron skillet or metal skillet, and let’s get cooking!

 
 
 

FAQ’s about One-Skillet Kielbasa Green Beans and Potatoes

  1. What exactly is Kielbasa? Kielbasa is a type of Central and Eastern European sausage that is a huge staple of Polish cuisine and comes in dozens of varieties, smoked or fresh, made with pork, beef, turkey, lamb, chicken or veal.
  2. Do you have a particular brand you use? The best quality and taste of smoked Kielbasa will always come from a local butcher that specializes in European and Polish organic specialty items. However, if that is not an option or budget-friendly for you, most grocers have a decent store brand of Smoked Kielbasa that you might enjoy.
  3. I noticed you mention using organic items, but I am concerned with GMO’s, corn has a notorious reputation for being genetically modified… I would recommend using a non-GMO brand; there are several on the worldwide web. Also, speak to your local farmers, they will be able to provide verifying information on the contents of their organic corn and or vegetables. You will always be able to identify non-GMO products sold by a non-GMO seal on the packaging 
  4. I can not afford organic grocery items; what should I do? Organic produce is simply a more healthy option; it is not written in stone. If you are unable to pay higher prices, there is no shame, one option I might recommend is doing a little home gardening using organic pesticides from natural sources versus chemicals and freezing or canning your produce.

    This sounds like it’s going in my “Favorites” & “Quick Dinners” folders. About the tomatoes since it doesn’t say to drain so I assume that I don’t…is that correct? Thanks for your great recipes!!

      I tend to look at everything anymore- I really don’t want to ingest GMO’s. I think it’s horrible scientists even thought of doing this

    One skillet meals are the best especially during weekdays! Smoked sausage and potatoes is the best combo!
