Kielbasa and Cabbage for Electric Pressure Cookers

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"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."

I didn’t include the Thyme as I’m not a fan, but this was so good, this will be a staple in our house.

I only used 14oz of kielbasa because that was what came in one package, so it was a little light on sausage.. but still very tasty. The cabbage ended up quite sweet.
