A super easy, one pan Cabbage and Kielbasa that's the perfect weeknight dinner

“What are you…Chinese? Japanese?…”  

If I had a nickel for every time I was asked this, I’d have vacation homes in China and Japan.  Instead, my standard response has been,

“Polish.”

The confusion this causes is almost as much fun as vacation homes would be. Best part, it’s true!  Ok ok in their defense, I’m a Korean Pollack.  I was born in Korea but was adopted into a Polish family.  I didn’t have kimchi until my 20s but I totally grew up on pierogis and cabbage and kielbasa dishes like this.A super easy, one pan Cabbage and Kielbasa that's the perfect weeknight dinnerMy dad and grandmother loved a good polish sausage.  They would have totally approved of this kielbasa that I picked up from Western Meat Market.  They also would have approved of this one pan dish that was ready in 30 minutes.  Ahhh weeknight dinnersA super easy, one pan Cabbage and Kielbasa that's the perfect weeknight dinnerYou know it’s going to be good when your husband comes home and the first thing out of his mouth when he walks through the front door is, “Whoa it smells good in here..”

Plenty of garlic, some red wine vinegar, and then Spanish paprika all compliment the cabbage and kielbasa to make an amazing but simple dish.  Paprika comes in many forms, my favorite is a Spanish Paprika, it has much more flavor than the “regular” paprika you usually find.  Either would work fine, but if you want to splurge on a great spice, check out your bulk spice section of the grocery store and branch out your paprika world!  
A super easy, one pan Cabbage and Kielbasa that's the perfect weeknight dinner Topped with some fresh parsley and this One Pan Cabbage and Kielbasa was the perfect busy weeknight dinner.  The only thing I would have changed about this dish is I would have made more of it!  

Smacznego!
