Kielbasa, Pepper, and Potato Skillet

Hearty and filling, this Kielbasa Sausage, Pepper and Potato Skillet fits the bill.

This Kielbasa, Pepper, and Potato Skillet comes to us from Warsaw, Poland. This quick & easy recipe is an old favorite dinner recipe of mine. The Kielbasa and potatoes taste wonderful together and the sweet peppers are the perfect complement to the dish.

Ways to Make a Sausage and Vegetable Skillet

You can use any type of sausage for this recipe, obviously, if you choose a sausage that comes from the store uncooked you will need to adjust the cooking time. As with the sausage, you can choose from a wide variety of roots and vegetables to use. The two essential ingredients for this recipe, in my opinion, are fish sauce and citrus. In case you did not know, Worcestershire sauce is a fermented fish sauce.

How to Store the Kielbasa, Pepper, and Potato Skillet

Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated within 2 hours of cooking or reheating. Use the leftover Kielbasa skillet within 3 to 4 days or freeze it for up to 2 months.

History of the Kielbasa, Pepper, and Potatoes

Kielbasa is any type of meat sausage from Poland and is a staple of Polish cuisine. In American English, the word typically refers to a coarse, U-shaped smoked sausage of any kind of meat.

The Potato was the first domesticated vegetable in the region of modern-day southern Peru and extreme northwestern Bolivia between 8000 and 5000 BC. The cultivation of potatoes in South America may go back 10,000 years.

Peppers are native to Mexico, Central America, and northern South America. Pepper seeds were imported to Spain in 1493 and then spread through Europe and Asia. The mild bell pepper cultivar was developed in the 1920s, in Szeged, Hungary.

The city area measures 517 km2 (200 sq mi) and comprises 18 boroughs, while the metropolitan area covers 6,100 km2 (2,355 sq mi). Warsaw is an alpha global city, a major cultural, political, and economic hub, and the country’s seat of government. Its historical Old Town was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A Brief History of Warsaw, Poland

The history of Warsaw spans over 1400 years. At that time, the city evolved from a cluster of villages to the capital of a major European power, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. Fortified settlements founded in the 9th century form the core of the city, in today’s Warsaw Old Town.

The city has hosted many crucial events in the history of Poland. It was the site of the election of Polish kings, the meeting of the Polish parliament (Sejm), and events such as the Polish victory over the Bolsheviks at the Vistula, during the Battle of Warsaw (1920). In recent years the history-laden city has grown to become the multicultural capital of a modern European state and a major commercial and cultural center of Central Europe.

Tourism in Warsaw, Poland

There are over 60 museums and galleries in Warsaw that are accessible to the public. As interesting examples of expositions, the most notable are: the world’s first Museum of Posters boasting one of the largest collections of art posters in the world, and the Museum of the History of Polish Jews.

The Cuisine of Warsaw, Poland

Warsaw’s culinary tradition has been shaped by its multicultural population. The city’s cuisine is distinct from that of other cities and towns in Poland. In 2021, National Geographic named Warsaw one of the top cities for vegans in Europe. Śródmieście Południowe (Southern Downtown) and its “hipster food culture” was singled out as the epicenter.
