Slow Cooker Kielbasa, Potato and Sauerkraut Stew

     With the arrival of a new baby, I quickly realized time was going to be at a premium.  With a hungry new member of the house, we would likely be spending the first couple of weeks overwhelmed with parenting. I took advantage of a couple free hours to drag out the slow cookers and prep a few meals to carry us through the busy time. This take on sausage and kraut was one of them. The addition of a cream soup gave it a nice stew consistency. It was super easy, filling and tasty. I will certainly add this one to the rotation. As always, notes are in blue.

Slow Cooker Kielbasa, Potato
and Sauerkraut Stew

  • 2 kielbasa (about 1 pound)
  • 3 potatoes, cut into about 1" cubes
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) cream of celery soup
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) water
  • 3 tablespoons spicy brown mustard (Gulden's is always my go-to)
  • 1 pound prepared sauerkraut (we used from a jar. You can use canned or bagged or even make it from scratch if you're feeling particularly productive)
  1. Load all ingredients into a slow cooker. Stir to incorporate water and soup.
  2. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or until potatoes are tender. 
Good times!
