This quick cabbage and sausage dish was a big hit in my house. Perfect for Instant Pot® or other similar electric pressure cookers with a Saute function. The cabbage came out soft, but not mushy or overcooked. I served it with some roasted, buttered corn.

5.24.18 Followed this recipe to the letter with the exception of sub’ing Hillshire Farm® Chicken Hardwood Sausage (tasty and much healthier) for the kielbasa. I have to wonder if all of that beef stock is really necessary because there was a lot of it in the Instant Pot® after the cooking cycle was completed. I had to use a slotted spoon to dish out the sausage and cabbage, so I’ll try reducing the amount of stock next time. Served withe boiled potatoes with a drizzle of vinegar, cooked apples, and Chunky Garlic Bread with sliced tomatoes (also on this site). Read More

This is a keeper. I used chicken broth and polish sausage, because that is what I had, and it turned out fabulous. There was a family feud over the last bowl. This recipe can be dressed up or served as is. It was a cold, snowy, blustery day and the family charged in starving. Instant pot to the rescue. Some of them ate it just like it was, while others slathered on hot sauce and some left over homefries. The boys want it again tomorrow!!! I call that a win! Thankyou Read More

Made exactly as recipe states, except I changed the servings to 4 (which was perfect since it uses one ‘rope’ of sausage!). I work late and need to get something on the table quickly for my husband and I. This was delicious and fast! The broth is buttery and so tasty. Not much leftover because my husband had two helpings, but just enough for lunch tomorrow :). Will definitely make again. Might try it over noodles next time. Read More

This was good, I mean, how can you go wrong with kielbasa and cabbage? We ate it with cornbread and it was a complete meal. My only thing was it seemed like there was a gigantic sausage to cabbage ratio. Maybe my cabbage was on the small side, or maybe I just prefer more of the vegetable, but I’ll probably double up on the cabbage next time. And the hubby says there should definitely be a next time.

I made it and after reading the reviews I made the following adjustments: I used 3/4 cup beer with 1/2 cup water, 1 rounded tsp of garlic better than bouillon base, 3 heads garlic chopped, and 1 lb bag of baby carrots. Delish! Hubby loved it! Since it only cooks for 5 minutes, 2 cups off broth is too much, so I cut back on the amount. Read More
