  • Skillet


  • 1 pound kielbasa
  • 1 medium head cabbage
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil


  • Heat up the olive oil in a large skillet or pot, and add diced onion. Sauté for a few minutes until the onion is soft and translucent.
  • Add sliced smoked sausage, and sauté on high heat until the sausages are gently seared. Then, add grated garlic and seasoning, and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  • Lastly, add shredded or finely sliced cabbage, along with the chicken stock. Stir to combine the ingredients.
  • Allow the cabbage to gently simmer on medium to low heat for about 10 minutes, or until the cabbage is soft.
