Kielbasa with Cabbage & Kale

kielbasa-with-cabbage-kaleHaving made keilbasa and cabbage many a time I don’t know WHY it has never occurred to me before now to throw in a little kale into the dish.  Today for lunch, I did so and was it ever good!  Even my husband wolfed this down and he’s not a fan of either cabbage or kale!  So it sounds like a keeper to ME.  🙂 The onion brings a slightly sweet edge to the cabbage and kale, which is quite nice.

I used Kolbasa brand of sausage (newly discovered at HEB stores in Texas).  I always like a brand that  has much less garlic than most.  Many companies just get way too much garlic in their smoked sausage.    This hearty, delicious dish is suitable for all phases of Atkins, other Keto diets and Primal-Paleo as well.

VARIATION:  Add a splash of your favorite vinegar to the skillet for the last few minutes of cooking for a more Polish or Czech-style of this famous dish. 

DIRECTIONS:   Heat  bacon grease in a non-stick wok or skillet over high heat.  Add sausage and stir fry until it begins to lightly brown. Add the onion and saute until starts to wilt and caramelize. Add cabbage and chopped kale, sauteing  just until cabbage begins to wilt.   Sprinkle with the black pepper and serve.
