Potatoes, Beans and Kielbasa

by Chelsea on December 22, 2015 in Budget Friendly, Dinner Table, Food

Its so easy to justify eating out (or take out) around the holidays. We’re busy shopping for gifts, seeing friends, attending parties and participating in activities. By the time dinner time rolls around we’re exhausted, or at least I am! Here’s a simple recipe that’s perfect for a busy winter day and made from ingredients that can easily be kept on hand.



~ 1 Kielbasa (We buy a 4 pack at Costco, divvy it up and freeze it for 4 different meals and always have it on hand)

~ Roughly 2 to 3 cups of frozen green beans (We keep a large bag of organic green beans from Costco in our freezer almost all the time)

~ 4 to 6 potatoes

~ Water

~ Salt and pepper to taste

Peel and cube the potatoes into 1 1/2″ to 2″ cubes.  Place the cubed potatoes and several handfuls of frozen green beans in a pot. Cover with water, add salt and pepper to taste and cook. About an hour or an hour and a half before you are ready to eat, slice the kielbasa into 1/2″ to 3/4″ pieces and add to the pot. Cook for the remaining time and serve.

You can start this in a crock pot on low and cook it all day or cook it in a pot on the stove on medium / high and have it ready in less than an hour.

Hope you enjoy this easy but tasty meal!
