Kielbasa, White Bean & Cabbage Stew

This delicious, comforting, and easy stew is filled with flavor, thanks to smoky kielbasa sausages. As the kielbasa slow cooks, it infuses the stew’s broth with rich flavor. White beans thicken the stew and give it body as it cooks. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and minced herbs for tanginess and freshness that offsets this dish’s savory flavor.

  • 12 oz kielbasa
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • ½ cup finely chopped celery
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed 
  • ½ small head green cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 cans white beans
  • ¼ cup sour cream, to serve 
  • ¼ cup minced chives, parsley, or dill


1) Cut kielbasa in half lengthwise and arrange cut-side up on a Suvie roasting rack (handles facing down) set within a Suvie pan. Place pan in the bottom zone of Suvie. Broil for 12 minutes, or until browned.

2) Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add ½ cup onion and ½ cup celery. Cook until softened and fragrant, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the cabbage and ½ tsp kosher salt and cook until softened, about 5 minutes more.

3) Remove kielbasa from Suvie and slice into half moons. Drain and rinse 1 can white beans and transfer to the now-empty Suvie pan (remove the roasting rack). Mash the beans with a fork or potato masher until pasty and thick. Stir in second can of beans with liquid, sliced kielbasa, onion, celery, cabbage, garlic, and 2 ½ cups water. Return pan to Suvie. Input settings and cook now.
