If you asked me, I’d tell you that we don’t have a dishwasher. If you asked Skyler, he’d point to me and say, “We sure do!” But the fact remains that we are dishwasher-less. While I certainly don’t mind cleaning our dishes by hand, to minimize the daily mess in our kitchen, I’ve recently been seeking out recipes that will allow me to make flavorful meals, while using as few pots and pans as possible.
Which leads to me to last night’s dinner. We were recently gifted a box from Omaha Steaks (thanks, Ben and Bri!), which included kielbasa, a traditional Polish sausage. When I think of kielbasa, I think of potatoes and onions (and cabbage, but I figured that may not have been such a hit in our household) – you know, the traditional Polish flavors. So, that’s what I went with. Plus a little bit of pepper.
This meal was super easy; I threw it all together in the short amount of time that Skyler was in the shower. And, best of all, it only required a cutting board, a knife and a skillet. Hallelujah, that’s pretty much like no dishes! (But I will admit: those very few dishes are still sitting in our sink right now. My bad.)
Ingredients: 14 oz. kielbasa, cut into rounds / 1 lb. russet potatoes, diced / 1 onion, thinly sliced / 2 bell peppers, diced / olive oil / butter / salt, pepper, garlic to season
*This will serve 4, but you can adjust to make as little or as much as you’d like!
Directions: Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet. / Add the potatoes. Season with salt, pepper and garlic. / Cook for about 6-7 minutes. / Add in kielbasa, peppers and onions. / Cook until kielbasa has browned, peppers have softened and onions are translucent. / Season with another dash of salt, pepper and garlic. / Serve and enjoy!
