An unusual but tasty way to serve kielbasa or other smoked sausage,
involving little work.

Take 1-2 lbs of kielbasa and slice it into 1/4 in rounds. Saute until
lightly browned. Add one medium onion, chopped, and saute until the
onion is transparent. Place in soup pot. Peel a couple pounds of 
red/new potatotes and cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Add to pot. Cover 
with water or diluted chicken broth. Add 1 Tbs sweet paprika. Add
1 small can (4-6 oz) of tomato juice or puree (not sauce). Simmer,
 covered, until potatoes are tender. Serve with rye bread and plenty
of butter.

This is quite tasty, I have done something similiar many times with
kielbasa. I use it in Split pea soup also. But instead of slicing, I put
it through the food processor after browning.. Some times I do not bother
to brown at all. works good both ways.

Glad you enjoyed it. This is a Hungarian legacy recipe, but I have not been
able to verify its lineage independently. The original version I learned did
not use Kielbasa but Kolbasz, a similar sausage but containing paprika. The
dish can also be finished with sour cream. Anyone seen a soup like this in
Czech, Slovak, Slovenian or other cooking?
