This is a really easy one-pot supper if you like a sampling of Polish foods. And while sauerkraut isn’t a Polish tradition, polish sausage and cabbage is so I included it in my pot. Our family has German and Polish roots and we love the flavors of sausage or kielbasa here. Adding the brown sugar cuts down on the bite of the sauerkraut which my kids appreciated.  This dinner goes great with a nice dark beer and is not for those on a diet. But hey, we all need to splurge once in a while.  You could try this with homemade pierogi too, but I’m just not that good!
