Kielbasa with Cabbage and Apples

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"Use hard cider instead of plain apple cider for my take on this great dish and don't forget the mustard! This goes great with my recipe for Onion Baked Beans. Serve with your favorite hearty, grainy mustard."

  1. Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Add kielbasa; cook and stir until browned, about 5 minutes. Pour in some apple cider. Scrape the browned bits off of the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon.
  2. Stir onion into the pot; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes more. Add cabbage, cider, Granny Smith apple, applesauce, caraway, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to low; simmer until cabbage softens, 20 to 25 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Canola oil can be substituted for the olive oil.
  • Use Tofurky® kielbasa and make this vegetarian.

This was simple and good. I added a splash of apple cider vinegar to cut some of the sweetness as I am not one for sweet. Delicious.

Some prep beforehand but then it was a quick and easy recipe. Everyone in my family really liked it. I used red cabbage because that is what I had and it was very good.

I just used half a bag of shredded Cole slaw & I did not add caraway seeds--My husband who is a bit fussy raved about this!---Also used 2 apples ----so easy & good????

Made as written and this turned out pretty good. I used unsweetened apple sauce to keep it from being too sweet. The one thing I did not care for was the caraway seed. It fits okay in the recipe...
