Crock-Pot Polish Mix-It Up Dinner

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!

      Precooked variety. You could use the raw but would need to either cook it a little prior in a pan or cook it longer in the crock-pot.

    i did exactly what the directions said to do but the pierogies did not cook right! :( they were all soft, mushy and stuck together!!! any ideas why? i guess next time i will boil the pierogies as directed and then just add them to the crock pot for a while to soak up the flavors of the kraut and sausage!

  2. disappointed says

    ehhh no biggie 😉 it tasted good even with the mushy pierogies … but like i said next time i’ll just boil them first and add them for a little bit at the end of the cooking. thanks … have a great weekend! (:

    I always fry my pierogies after cooking them they are mush better and not mushy. Cook first and then add them and do t cook for so long is my idea.
