This Crockpot Polish Sausage, Cabbage and Potato Soup is what we would call a Poor Man’s Dinner – but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t delicious! This is something my Baba would have thrown into a soup pot and cooked up for dinner, because you worked with the foods you had!
Polish Sausage, Cabbage and Potato Soup in the Slow Cooker
There is almost no simpler soup to make than a Polish sausage , cabbage and potato soup and it’s the kind of soup that I grew up on. Soup with onions, cabbage and kielbasa, with some potatoes thrown in is the staple in many a Polish or Ukrainian household. Again, you cooked with what you had on hand, and these were foods that were always available.
What type of sausage should I use?
You can use any type of sausage that you enjoy the taste of. Ham sausage, Farmer’s sausage or kielbasa, all that matters is that it’s a smoked sausage and not a raw sausage! This soup only works with smoked sausage.
Tips and Tricks for Making Polish Sausage, Cabbage and Potato Soup
- Do not increase the broth, the cabbage is going to release a lot of liquid while cooking! This is going to look thick, and like it won’t end up being soup, but trust the cabbage!
- You can change up the vegetables, leave out the carrots and potatoes if you are looking for a more low-carb soup – trust me, it will still be amazing with only the cabbage and sausage!
