Kielbasa Stir-Fry

Kielbasa Stir-Fry

This is a super easy, fast, simple, and affordable dish to make. Definitely one of my go-to dishes on days when I’m busy/lazy and want a quick meal. Pairs really well with white rice as it balances out the saltiness and sweetness of the dish. 

 Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 2 to 3  


  • 1 14oz pack of polska kielbasa, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
  •  3 tablespoons of ketchup (see note)
  • 1 teaspoon of soy sauce (optional)
  •  You can put a bit less if you want to cut back on the sweetness of the dish. 


  1.  Slice the kielbasa into oval-shaped slices by cutting it diagonally or into circles by cutting it straight across. I like cutting it diagonally since this shape exposes more of the surface which allows more sauce to stick to each piece. 
  2. Slice the onion into thin wedges and set aside.
  3. Heat up a 12-inch pan on medium heat. Once the pan is hot, add in the oil. 
  4. Once the oil is heated, toss the kielbasa into the pan. Stir-fry until both sides are lightly browned. This should take 3-5 minutes. 
  5. Lower heat to medium and toss in the onion. Combine and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  6. Add in the ketchup and soy sauce. Mix until all the kielbasa and onion slices are evenly covered with the sauce. 
  7. Stir-fry for 2 more minutes. The onions should be translucent with a crunchy texture. You can cook it for a minute or so longer if you want the onions to have a softer texture. 
  8. Turn of the stove and remove pan from heat.
  9. Serve with a steaming bowl of rice!

    1. I feel like chorizo would not need the ketchup and sugar as it is already filled with flavor. However, stir frying it with onions will add a nice layer of flavor and a satisfying crunchy texture. Please let me know how it turns out! 🙂

    1. Thanks Rima! I have not tried with the plant-based sausages but will put that on my list to try one of these days. Please let me know if you do end up trying it and if there’s a specific plant-based sausage you’d recommend.
