Hot Coleslaw & Kielbasa Skillet

There are few things I love more than a meal made of cabbage.

I know, it’s a weird love of mine. Cabbage is just so good! I can’t get enough of it. Even better than cabbage, though, is kielbasa. Kielbasa sausage is so salty and wonderful in all of its glory.

This is another winner of a recipe from that Taste of Home magazine I picked up a few weeks ago. As soon as I spotted it, I knew I had to make it. It mixes together kielbasa and cabbage in a way I had never thought of before. The vinegar-honey-mustard sauce makes this truly a “hot coleslaw”!

The original recipe called for coleslaw mix but I used just plain ol’ cabbage instead. A head of cabbage is inherently cheaper than a bag of coleslaw mix, I’m afraid. The vinegar-honey-mustard sauce really added to the hot coleslaw aspect of the dish. It’s tasty and I couldn’t stop thinking about it after the first bite.
