This recipe for Instant Pot Kielbasa and Potatoes was inspired by my childhood. I grew up in an area with a lot of Polish influence, and so there was a lot of kielbasas, or polish smoked sausage, used in recipes.

My grandparents would make a simple dish using either ham, potatoes, and green beans, or kielbasa, potatoes, and green beans. It was simmered for hours on the stove or in the slow cooker until the potatoes and green beans were super soft and absorbed all the rich flavor from the sausage.

I took that recipe and sped up the process. Now in less than 20 minutes, the magic of the Instant Pot delivers this Polish comfort food. It is rich, creamy, flavorful and so incredibly easy to make.
