My family loves this recipe! It is great on a snowy day when you need a whole body warm up and is VERY easy on your pocketbook. Serve over rice.

Giving this 4 stars because I changed the recipe following other reviewers' suggestions. Cut the black pepper to 1 tsp used olive oil & butter (around 2 Tbs. total) added garlic & mustard. The mustard is a brilliant suggestion! It really makes the dish. I serve this with buttered egg noodles (actually I used a "Smart" butter-like spread instead of real butter). Add the buttered egg noodles to the cabbage & kielbasa mixture at the end and stir it all together. You need a really BIG pot as this makes a huge amount! Tasty easy recipe; I'll be making this quite often! Read More

This was a bit different and pretty easy to make but in the end I'll have to settle for calling this just an okay recipe. I made it exactly as written using Penzeys "Very Hot" Cajun seasoning. I ate it as is without doing the suggested "serve over rice". It was fairly spicy but not especially tasty otherwise. Just nothing special in my opinion. Read More

Quick, easy, and delicious! My girlfriend was skeptical because she is Polish and grew up eating delicious Kielbasa recipes. How can I compete with that? Well, we polished off the entire dish between us very easily. Don't worry about having too much cabage in the beginning. It cooks down a lot. Also, don't be discouraged if it doesn't taste great at first. Once it cooks for the entire 20 minutes, the juices from the Kielbasa and all the other flavors mix really well. I served it with instant brown rice and it was perfect. No way there's enough for 4, though. We're not big eaters and the two of us finished it with no problems. Read More

Based on previous reviews I added some chopped garlic to the onion saute reduced the cajun spice and the black pepper to ONE teaspoon each and added a generous squirt of brown mustard to the worcestershire before adding. SENSATIONAL! Very tasty and this recipe is a definite keeper. Love it. Read More

This is easy to make and you can adjust the seasoning depending on your mood. I brown the kielbasa with the onion first then add the cabbage since I like my meat browned and the cabbage with bite. Added garlic and made it a little more spicy by adding red pepper. Yum. Read More

Fantastic! My husband and I loved this! I did use real butter instead of the oil for more flavor only about 1 TBSP. I also used fresh chopped garlic and cooked it with my onion for a bit prior to adding the cabbage. I think it gave the cabbage a bit more flavor. I also only used a touch of cajun spice. If you are a "hunky" like me try serving it over potato and cheese pierogies! This is a definate keeper! Read More
