2- Bags of barrel cured sauerkraut
6- ounces sweet cole slaw (you can make it yourself or buy it a the deli counter)
4- cloves of fresh garlic diced
4- onions diced
6 - shiitake mushrooms sliced
4 - tablespoons olive oil
12- ounces of garlic kielbasa cut in one inch rounds*
*This is a great opportunity to patronize your local butcher and ask for some kielbasa that was produced locally with meat that wasn't raised using antibiotics or raised on a factory farm.
In large crock or sauce pot mix sauerkraut and coleslaw and heat on medium. In frying pan add olive oil and sauté onions and garlic. When browned add to sauerkraut pot and mix. Add shiitake mushrooms to pot. Add kielbasa to pot. Simmer for at least an hour until kielbasa plumps up and is tender.
Put on some Ukranian music and enjoy!
