Quick And Healthy Weeknight Meal for Busy Families: Smoked Kielbasa Over Rice

Have you hit the weeknight recipe slump? It's easy to run into a bind when constantly on the go. Sure, fast food is always an option, but with simple meal planning at the start of the week, you can have a weekly menu that'll help you stick to your grocery budget, and will afford you some quality family time around the dinner table. MBP has a variety of wonderful recipes for you to Pin and save, and if you're a kielbasa fan, you're going to love this week's featured recipe!

Smoked Kielbasa Over Rice

Cast of Characters:

1 Large Yellow OR White Onion

Jasmine Rice (for use in a rice cooker)

Favorite BBQ Sauce

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

1. Prepare rice as directed in a rice cooker (If you do not own a rice cooker, you can make rice in your usual way as long as it cooks evenly)

Amazon has a great selection of affordable rice cookers such as this one. I would suggest investing in one so that you can have perfect, easy sticky rice every single time. 

2. Slice onion in strips and saute in a skillet with 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil for 10 minutes or until onions become golden brown.

3. Slice kielbasa in 1 inch pieces and add to the skillet along with 2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce, continuing to saute with the onions for an additional 5 minutes. 

4. When your rice cooker "dings", it is time to assemble a delicious weeknight dinner!

I would suggest putting the onion and sausage mixture over the rice and enjoy it that way. 

If your family does not enjoy onions, you can omit with broccoli or zucchini.

Also, as an alternative to the BBQ sauce, this can be transformed into a Japanese-inspired meal by using teriyaki sauce instead.  

Stay tuned for more easy weeknight meals...
