This was pure comfort in a pot!
We had a cabbage from our CSA delivery that we wanted to finish up before we went away. We also had a bag full of bits of kielbasa in the freezer that kept threatening to fall on my foot every time I opened the freezer door. I googled kielbasa and cabbage and look what popped up!!!
This is a classic Polish dish as translated to the US mid-west. There are also versions made popular by German immigrants to the Waterloo area in Ontario.
This is one of those quick and easy throw it in the pot dinners, perfect on a busy day.
