Kielbasa & Cabbage Soup (Quick & Easy)


Kielbasa and Cabbage Soup

Total time to prepare – Approximately 45 minutes. Serves eight (8).

 –– My Polish heritage gets all excited whenever I find a recipe with Kielbasa. Fond memories of my parents at the kitchen table return with the aroma of fresh Polish sausage. My mother-in-law even prepared Polish sausage every Christmas. This soup adds another ingredient that is pleasing to my roots – Cabbage. Darn near perfect combo. And this soup is quick and easy. Enjoy. 


  • 1 lb. Kielbasa, cut into bite-size cubes.
  • 1 Onions – Chopped
  • 16 oz. Cole Slaw mix – shredded cabbage with carrots
  • 2 Garlic cloves – minced
  • 32 oz. Beef Broth
  • 16 oz. Chicken Broth
  • 1 can – 12 oz. beer
  • 1 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Carraway seeds
  • 4 cups French Fried Onions, divided in half


  1. Place kielbasa and onion in a dutch oven on medium heat. Brown the kielbasa and soften the onion for about five (5) minutes.
  2. Add the coleslaw mix and saute until tender, about another five (5) minutes.
