Many years ago I found a recipe that looked good and one day I finally got around to tweaking it and this is what I came up with.

kolbassa pan fry


7 or 8 mini red potatoes, quartered
3 tablespoons water
5 half inch slices of smoked kolbassa, cut each slice into quarters
1 medium chopped onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegarette
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
1 nice sized bunch of broccoli (you could actually throw in other veggies if you like)


- Place potatoes and water in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 4 minutes or until tender;

- In a large skillet, saute kolbassa and onion in oil until onion is tender. Stay with it and watch it and flip the kolbassa when one side is nicely browned.

- Add potatoes with the bit of water; saute 5 minutes longer or until kolbassa and potatoes are lightly browned. Watch the potatoes and flip them as well so they are browned on both sides of the quarters.

- Combine the brown sugar, cider vinegar, balsamic vinegarette, thyme and pepper; stir into skillet. Bring to a boil. Have it on medium heat (6 or 7 on an electric stove); simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until heated through.

- Throw in the broccoli and simmer for another 5 minutes, stirring to make sure everything is mixed. Yield: 2 servings. Personally I use Pillar's kolbassa. It has no msg and is a little less fatty because it's made with pork and turkey. It has a really nice flavour on it's own but is even nicer when cooked this way.
