Beer Sausage

Beer Sausage

DJ Ness 2

"A dish of either German or possibly Polish origin, made special by my mother, grandmother, her mother before her, etc. The men will love this one, too, and the beer broth is nothing short of amazing. I like to use whatever is in the fridge. Ales, lagers, and wheat brews work best. Did I mention this is an incredibly easy, one-pot dish that kids love? Hope you like it!"

  1. Pour the beer into a large pot, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Layer the potatoes into the bottom of the pot, and sprinkle a little Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper over the potatoes. Layer the baby carrots, onion, smoked sausage, and cabbage, sprinkling every layer with a bit more of the Italian seasonings, salt, and pepper. Turn heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 45 minutes.

Having European parents, I grew up eating lots of German food. I'm not the biggest fan, particularly when it comes to any type of sausage but I just tasted this and it's absolutely delicious! I ...

This was a decent meal. I always like the combo of beer and kielbasa! I only used about 1/3 of a head of cabbage, and it was more than enough.

I liked this quite a bit, but my husband was less fond of it. I do have to admit that we used vegetarian faux kielbasa (my husband is a vegetarian), and that provided most of the flavor, so usin...

Very good. I added 1 tsp of minced garlic. In the place of reg. salt I used seasoned salt and garlic salt. I used only 1 tsp of italian seasoning. I also used 2 bottles of beer.

This was really good. I used coors light, and it worked just fine. Also I replaced the italian seasoning with just plain old sweet basil. I really like cabbage, so I may just boil cabbage alone ...

I thought this was really good. I threw in a little celery to make up for the carrots I was lacking. Also, I sauteed the kielbasa chunks until slightly charred and threw in a splash of chardonna...

This dish was okay. My husband is a cabbage fan and just said this was okay – not wonderful. He didn’t really like the Italian seasoning. My son loved the kielbasa and potatoes. Kielbasa alw...

very good exactly as wrote.

This was a big hit with my family. I was worried because I don't like the taste of beer, but the flavor combination was great. My picky eaters did not eat one item (carrots for one, onions for t...
