Sorry, Foamheart and Clarissa. It is just the nature of things.

I hate to say this, but the only kielbasa I have used is Hillshire Farms. Kielbasa is a common substitute in Jambalaya and Gumbos, when out of the bayou region.

 

Clarissa it really looks really good to me, you just make it all look so simple and I know better.

 

I really appreciate you sharing.

 

Hey Disco and Kevin,

 

Thanks so much for the compliments, guys....of course not everything I make is perfect, I turn out plenty of crap too.  But like politicians everywhere I then dispose of the evidence, bribe others to secrecy, and deny it ever happened.  :biggrin:

 

Kevin, until now Hillshire Farm brand was my only experience with kielbasa too.  It was definitely a fun sausage and smoking project....hope you'll give it a try after your Boudin is all gone.  I'm planning to try the kielbasa in some red beans and rice tonight.  I probably should use Andouille or something like that, but the lure of using homemade smoked sausage is too strong.

 

Have a great day, and Happy New Year!

Clarissa

Hi Carlos,

Thank you!! I would personally have liked to smoke a little longer for better color, but I have to keep the smoke light to accomodate my husband's tastes. However, the flavor is sure great.

Thanks so much for dropping by, and Happy New Year!

I am currently on the Kielbasa Diet, where every meal for the last two days has included Kielbasa. biggrin.gif

Here is today's lunch: Braised Cabbage and Onion with Kielbasa. Simple, but very flavorful.

OK, here is my last addition to this post. Here is New Year's Eve dinner....Red Beans and Rice from scratch using my own homemade smoked ham hocks, and my homemade Kielbasa. I know that I should've used Andouille, but the Kielbasa was actually really good in it, and I just added a little more cayenne pepper to compensate.



This came out great.....almost as good as Zatarain's brand! biggrin.gif

And with that, Happy 2014 everyone!!! See you all in the New Year!

Basically the only difference between Kielbasa and Andouille is the heat from Cayenne. The Cabbage and Kielbasa looks great. I have eaten the same thing since childhood but Mom either added Bow tie pasta of fried sliced Potatoes in with the Cabbage until all was browned. It develops a lot of sweetness from caramelizing the Cabbage and Onions...JJ

Hi Chef JJ,
Thank you for your explanation! The fried sliced potato addition to the cabbage and kielbasa sounds great! I'll give that a shot for lunch today. Thanks again for all of your help with this project. Happy New Year!
