Sharing is caring!

This is a go-to recipe! I’ve made this for camping trips, potlucks, and have it on my dinner table once a month and leftovers are great!


  • 3 large potatoes, cubed
  • ¼ cup butter, divided
  • 1 pound Polish kielbasa sausage, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 large head cabbage, coarsely chopped
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika


Place potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl; cook in microwave until partially tender, about 8 minutes.

Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a Dutch oven or large cast iron skillet over medium heat; cook and stir sausage and onions until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer sausage and onions to a bowl.

Heat remaining 2 tablespoons butter in the same Dutch oven; cook and stir cabbage until tender, about 5 minutes.

Combine tomatoes, sugar, and paprika in a bowl; pour over cabbage and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add potatoes and sausage-onion mixture. Cover Dutch oven and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 40 minutes.
