Kielbasa Stew

Who needs Yankee Candles when you have a crock pot full of this stew!?!?

Not me.

I first saw this stew from Laurie (The Corner Slice), who by the way has the most adorable little girl, and I knew I must make it…especially for my husband.

Since getting pregnant, I’ve had this constant craving for meat. Mr. Chocolate & Carrots says that I should just give in and continue this love affair after I have the baby.

Well see.

In the meantime, check out this comfort food.


Exhibit A:

Ahh, and look at that steam!

It was kind of windy outside, so it was hard to catch the steam going up. It’s doing swirls to the side.

Silly wind, steam is for rising!

Kielbasa Stew

adapted from Group Recipes


  • 4 cups coarsely chopped cabbage
  • 2 cups peeled and cubed potatoes
  • 1 cup peeled and cubed sweet potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced carrots
  • 1 pound sliced kielbasa
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 vegetable bullion cubes
  • 4 cups of water


  1. Combine all ingredients in a crock pot.
  2. Cook on low for 7-9 hours.

Note: If I made it again, I’d probably leave out the sweet potatoes because they became mush after sitting in the crock pot all day. Instead, just use a total of 3 cups of potatoes.



  1. Just did the grocery shopping, this will be cooking up in my slow cooker tomorrow! Cant wait. Also, I have a request for a recipe — Chocolate beetroot cake. I’d LOVE to see what you may be able to come up with. Let me know if your up for the challenge! I know you LOVE chocolate and I thought the addition of beets to UP the nutrition factor might just be up your alley!

    1. Totally! I’ve seen some recipes for chocolate beet cakes and I NEED to make it. ๐Ÿ˜€ That would be a perfect Easter time cake! Woohoo! Thanks for the challenge. I’ll see what I can come up with! Yay! Enjoy the stew tomorrow! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This is delicious! I didn’t want to leave out the sweet potato so I put everything else in the crockpot. Then about an hour before dinner I cut up the sweet potato and cooked it in the microwave and then added it to the stew. My husband loved it. I’ll definitely make it again.
