Kielbasa & Sauerkraut Sauteed With Peppers & Onions

August 18, 2013

Dinner this evening was very good and easy. Enjoy.

When you’re buying kielbasa, or any kind of sausage really, try to know where the sausage comes from, buy local whenever possible. I’m not sure there are any real health benefits to buying stuff locally (though I’m sure some would argue) but it does make good common sense especially with stuff like sausage. There is just something about being able to point to a map and say “I’ve been there” when you’re eating, I dunno what it is. Anyway, I live in Ohio and lucky for us we are rich in sausage making ethnicities so finding great local sausages is usually pretty easy. The kielbasa I used in this dish was local and delicious, I hate sounding cliched but you could almost “taste” the freshness. Anyway….

1 kielbasa (about 1/2 lb or so)

1/2 each diced red, yellow and green peppers

1/4 diced onion

1 Tablespoon of coconut oil

1 Tablespoon garlic powder

2 – 1/2 cups natural/organic sauerkraut, drained

Cut up the 1/2 lb or so of kielbasa and start browning it in coconut oil. Once it is browned add in the tri-color peppers and onions and garlic powder. Once the onions and peppers are cooked down add in the sauerkraut and cook until the sauerkraut is done which should take less than five minutes or so. That’s it.

Chicken, Spinach, Mozzarella Sausage in Light Tomato Sauce

August 9, 2012

Get some chicken sausage with spinach and mozzarella (usually in your grocery store or butcher) otherwise just saute chicken sausage with spinach and cook in skillet. In a separate pan add diced tomatoes, red, green, yellow peppers and Italian herbs, cook down until peppers are tender. Combine cooked sausage with sauce and cook a bit longer. Top with fresh parmesan and enjoy.
