Nobody had any complaints. The meat was still a little tough after the hour and a half. Maybe next time it would work better in a crock pot?.

Stuffed Peppers
Kielbasa and Cabbage – my own easy recipe

All you need to make the kielbasa and cabbage dish is a big pot, kielbasa, cabbage, butter, and pepper to taste.

– fill the pot about a quarter full of water, put about 2 T butter in, cut up cabbage ( I use 2 heads to feed 6 people) and place in pot.  Cook on Med heat until the cabbage is soft, about 30 min.  Slice the kielbasa ( again I use 2 pckgs.). And place in pot.  Stir it up, turn on low and let cook for about another 10 min until kielbasa is warmed.   Season with pepper.
