Why I Love This Recipe

This is how I make the traditional Slavic dish, kapusta.

The first time I made it, I thought I had invented it. Then my multiple Slavic-heritage roommates told me otherwise.

Kapusta is the Russian word for cabbage, which makes sense since the main ingredient is sauerkraut.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 lbs smoked sausage or kielbasa
4 peppers (1 green, 1 red, 1 orange, 1 yellow)
2 largish yellow onions
2 16-oz cans of sauerkraut
olive oil


Chop the peppers and onions into slightly smaller than bit-sized pieces.

In a large pot, heat a few teaspoons of olive oil over medium heat. Saute vegetables in oil until onions are soft.

Add sauerkraut to pot and mix vegetables together.

Cut sausage into bite-sized slices. Add sausage to the pot and mix everything together.

Lower heat. Cover the pot and allow to simmer, stirring every 5-10 minutes.

Allow to simmer for about 30 minutes, or until meat it cooked thoroughly.
