This is a hearty dish that will warm you up on cold days. It is easy to make and takes less than an hour. We use a good brown ale from one of the local breweries or Guinness.
I serve mine with Brown Butter Soda Bread. You can mix this up and pop it in the oven just before you start this recipe. It will be warm and ready to serve when your Beer Keilbasa with Cabbage is ready to serve.
Whisk beer, mustard, vinegar, honey, thyme and cayenne together in a bowl and set aside.
Heat oil in a stockpot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent. Add kielbasa and cook until lightly browned all over. Add garlic and sauté briefly.
Add beer mixture to pot and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Stir in cabbage, carrots, potatoes, salt and pepper.
Cover and cook over medium-high heat until cabbage is tender and potatoes and carrots are cooked through. About 20 minutes.
Serve with Brown Butter Soda Bread.
