Quick and easy Meals: Polska Turkey Kielbasa and rice.

Updated on April 12, 2013

Looking for a quick meal that’s satisfying but easy to prepare? This may be the answer for some relief from a long hard day. One dish cooking is an easy way to prepare a meal for the family, as well as make for easy clean-up. If the ingredients are not already in your pantry and freezer, you can add them for a minimal expense.


1 lbs. package of Eckrich Turkey Polska Kielbasa (Substitutions are acceptable)

2 cups Long-grain Jasmine Rice

4 cups water

2 cups frozen sweet peas

12” skillet with lid

To begin, place a large 10-12” skillet on the stove; add water and bring to a boil. Place the Kielbasa in the water and cover. Reduce to simmer allow it to cook for ten minutes. Uncover and turn the kielbasa, cover and continue cooking. After an additional ten minutes remove the cover and place the kielbasa on a cutting board to rest.

Now bring the water back to a boil and add the rice. When the water and rice come back to a boil, cover and reduce the heat to low. Let the rice simmer for 12 minutes.

While the rice is cooking, put the frozen peas into a microwave proof container and heat on high for 4 minutes. Now that the peas and rice are cooking, take a sharp knife and slice the Kielbasa into ¼ inch round wafer-like slices. The peas should be finished well before the rice, but let them remain inside the microwave until you’re ready for them. Once the rice is finished cooking, turn off the burner and let the rice rest. Remove the peas from the microwave and set the container next to the skillet containing the rice.

You can use a separate platter or simply use the skillet for a serving dish. Level the rice in the skillet and place the slices of Kielbasa into the center, then spread the peas around the outside to make an attractive and colorful serving bowl (But it may be just as easy to serve the meal from separate containers). Time to eat!

      You are so right. Quick. Easy. And comfort food - absolutely. We make the Kielbasa with macaroni a cheese, doctored up with some peppers and spices. They definitely go together.

      This sounds delicious and it is obviously an easy one pot dish, perfect for the end of a long busy day. My fathers family is Polish so we are familiar with and really enjoy Kielbasa.

      Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year. :) ~~Theresa
