Kielbasa Fried Rice

Kielbasa Fried Rice


"A bit of Polish mixed with an old Filipino favorite. A terrific way to use up left-over rice. Definitely a favorite at my apartment! Be sure to use rice that is cooked the previous day. Fresh rice will ruin this recipe and make it mushy. Add more veggies for variety."

I browned cubes of lite kielbasa in the pan first, then used the little bit of grease they gave up to saute the onion. Used a 16oz bag of coleslaw mix instead of carrots and cabbage. And added a couple handfuls of frozen peas at the end. Some steamed broccoli on the side made this a complete meal.


This was good, although I really modified the amounts of the ingredients. I felt it was way too heavy on the sausage. I diced 8 oz. of fully cooked kielbasa, fried it, drained it, and then blotted out as much grease as possible--my 1/2 lb. turned out to be 4 oz. For this amount of meat, the other things I CHANGED were: used 1 medium onion, 2 large carrots, 2 cloves of garlic, 9 oz. (by weight) of cabbage coleslaw mix, and 2 cups of pre-cooked rice. This made 2 large main-dish portions that were not at all greasy. Serve it with a sweet fruit, such as red grapes or cantaloupe. A very fast, simple, and good dinner, esp. if the meat is prepared ahead of time. Yum.


Really good...however I made a few slight changes; I used Turkey Kielbasa, brown rice and a whole bag of preshredded Angel Hair Cabbage. I also cooked the egg seperately(fried/scrambled) before assembling the final dish.
