Awesome recipe!!!!! We brwenod/seared the Kielbasa first then followed the recipie as stated and added the Kielbasa back in after the onions and carrots cooked. We added white and yellow hominy into the pan, instead of using potatoes or rice,and let it simmer the last 30 min. Awesome flavor!! Great recipe! A keeper for sure!!!!!
