Sausage With Tangy Caraway Cabbage

When it's St. Patrick's Day, don't you always have Kielbasa and Sauerkraut?  Yeah, so that's what we had.  I found this recipe on Real Simple, and usually their recipes are exactly that.  This was no exception.

We adapted the recipe because we didn't use as much Olive Oil, and the Kielbasa only came in 14 oz packages, not 1 lb packages.  Then we both were very hungry so we made it 3 servings.  So I'm sure you could make it less calories making it 4, and even if you went with non-beef Kielbasa.

Anyway this was very good.  We had with regular bread, and if you threw cabbage on it, it tasted rye.  I really liked it.  D said it was very easy to make.  Would have again.

2 tablespoons olive oil
14 oz. kielbasa, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 16-ounce bag coleslaw mix
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
kosher salt and black pepper
3/4 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
bread and whole-grain mustard, for serving (not included in Nutritional Information)

Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the kielbasa and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the skillet and reduce heat to medium. Add the onion and cook, tossing occasionally, until tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

Add the coleslaw mix, caraway seeds, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and cook, tossing frequently, 2 minutes more.

Stir in the wine and vinegar. Nestle the kielbasa in the vegetables. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender and wine has nearly evaporated, 5 to 6 minutes.

Stir in the parsley. Serve with the bread and mustard, if desired.
