Potato, Pepper, and Kielbasa Skillet with Sauerkraut

This Potato, Pepper, and Kielbasa Skillet with Sauerkraut is a complete flavor bomb of deliciousness in your mouth! It is also very filling and only takes about 15 minutes to throw together; talk about a weeknight win. And if you did not know, sauerkraut has all kinds of benefits — it’s packed with nutrients like vitamin K2 and probiotics to help with digestion and more — making this skillet recipe even better!

And while it is a simple recipe, I promise it is still husband-approved. Clayton is obsessed with this skillet and begs for an extra serving every time I make it. The dish is also a great recipe paired with a crisp, cold beer — if you are not doing a Whole30 of course!

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time30 mins


  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • ½ white onion sliced
  • 4 red potatoes
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp whole grain mustard or spicy brown mustard check your labels for whole 30 approved!
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 [12-oz] link of kielbasa I use Pederson's Farms No Sugar Kielbasa
  • Whole30 Compliant Sauerkraut to taste (I use Farmhouse Culture)


  • Scrub the red potatoes, pat dry. Cut each potato into eights. Remove seeds/core of the bell peppers, cut them into chunks that are the same size as the potatoes.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat. When hot, add your potatoes and cook for three minutes, stirring occasionally. Now add your bell peppers and sliced onions and continue cooking. Add plenty of kosher salt (you're dealing with potatoes here) and some black pepper to taste.
  • Cook until the potatoes are just cooked through and the bell peppers are tender, about 7 more minutes. The potatoes should be tender all the way through when pieced with the fork. Turn heat down to low.
  • Slice up your kielbasa and toss into the skillet with 2 tbsp of mustard, and the juice of a lemon. Stir to combine and cook on low until kielbasa is heated through.
  • Serve with Whole30 approved sauerkraut and enjoy!

    This has become my Go-To dinner! My husband and I both love it and I now make it weekly. It’s so good, I even make it when we’re camping 🙂 I use orange and red peppers because I don’t care for green ones, but everything else is perfect 👌🏻 I’m actually making it for dinner right now.

    This is a new favorite dish as I’m on the Jan Whole30 and this triples as a compliant, husband favorite, and amazing make-ahead dish! We will keep this on our regular rotation for Dinner and Lunch. We weren’t able to find the sr’krt the first go, but have made this each week for Whole30. My Mom was so nice and prepped some for my household and hers over the weekend too.
    I really enjoy cooking and making new things and I really appreciate that you share such wonderful dishes in a simplified and easy to understand way. I see you. Even your ingredients are intentionally listed in order. It makes a big difference for us.

    Thanks for the recipe! It was so easy to throw together. My daughter said, “this is delicious” and my picky-eater enjoyed it too! I made a little extra and I see loaded breakfast tacos in my future now…
