This is a quick and easy weeknight meal that my whole family likes. It is inspired by a recipe of my mother's.
|1 turkey (or regular) kielbasa or sausage||$2.50|
|2 to 3 potatoes||$1.50|
|1 lb. baby carrots, or 2 carrots, cut up||$2.00|
|1 medium onion (use 1/2 onion if large)||$.99|
|2 to 3 cloves of garlic||$.50|
|Total Cost = $7.49|
Chop onion and mince or press garlic. When the kielbasa is browned, remove from pan and add enough oil to equal about 1 Tbps (this may be unnecessary if you used regular kielbasa). Saute onions and garlic until soft, about 5 minutes. Add water and scrape bottom of pan to release browned bits. The potatoes and carrots are usually ready to go at this time.
Dump steamed veggies and the steaming liquid into saucepan with onions, etc. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Allow to thicken slightly then add kielbasa, 1 to 2 dashes of Worchestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp. thyme and Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper. Reduce heat, cover and allow to "stew" for as long as you need, at least 10 minutes. I usually serve it with a crusty bread that I heat up at this time. If there is any left, it makes a great work lunch the next day. Start to finish, this shouldn't take more than a half an hour.

Just made this. Used a little less water so that it was less of a "stew" as the end result. The flavor was amazing! Thanks for helping me use up some ingredients on hand for a wonderful dinner. :) It's a keeper!
We like Kielbasa cut into bavarian kraut, an apple and a smidgen of brown sugar, then simmer for awhile.
