Kielbasa and Cabbage Recipe

Occasionally I go shopping with recipes in mind. More often, I go armed with a list of items that are at "rock-bottom prices" per the grocery game. Then when I get home I have a kitchen full of food with not a clear idea of what to do with it. This week Fresh Express coleslaw mix was on sale wfor $1 a bag and kielbasa was buy one, get one free. After searching the internet, I cobbled together a couple of recipes and came up with this:

Not Quite Coleslaw & Sausage
Serves 2-3 people
Prep. Time: 10 min.
Cooking Time: 10 min.

1 med. onion
1 lb. kielbasa sausage (sliced in 1-inch pieces)
1 tbsp. butter
1 cup chicken stock
10 oz. coleslaw mix (in produce section, shredded red & green cabbage and carrots)
splash of red wine
dash of red pepper flakes (1 packet from Round Table Pizza works :-))
salt and pepper to taste

Saute the onion in butter until just tender. Brown sausage with onion. Add chicken stock and coleslaw mix. Cover and cook on med. heat for about 10 minutes. Add a splash of red wine, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.

This is definitely how I shop too — for ingredients, and decide later what to do! ; P
