This cabbage dinner recipe is super easy, even a beginner or a kid can make it. The slow cooker Kielbasa cabbage confetti is so beautiful and filled with vibrant colors. Bet you can't resist it. Wait till you try it....it is even more than irresistible.
Cooked Kielbasa is the staple in my household. Everybody in our family loves it. Because of its flavor, I always like to pair it with vegetables, such as One-Pan Baked California Blend Vegetables with Kielbasa or Fruity Kielbasa Kebab.
Prep Time: 20 Minutes Cooking Time: 2-2.5 Hours Serving: 4-6
The first time when I made this dish, I only used regular cabbage and Kielbasa. Man, oh man....I was addicted already. But it seemed like there was not enough. The volume of cabbage shrank significantly. Plus, it would be nice to have some beautiful colors.
So, I decided to use red cabbage and carrots the next time which, as a result, the Slow Cooker Kielbasa Cabbage Confetti recipe was born.
Like other red vegetables, such as red onion, radishes, red chard and so forth, red cabbage, starts to discolor after staying in the crock pot more than 3 hours. Besides, the color will get on other vegetables and Kielbasa. So, if there is any leftover from this recipe, you will see regular cabbage and kielbasa turn to purplish red.
If you want to stay away from this situation, feel free to skip the red cabbage entirely and stick with regular cabbage.
