Paleo Instant Pot Kielbasa with Sauerkraut and Potatoes

Paleo Instant Pot Kielbasa with Sauerkraut and Potatoes

This recipe is a hearty real-food dinner, with minimal prep time. The potatoes are optional, you can skip them or swap them out for other root vegetables. Or simply add more sauerkraut.

This is not a true dump-and- go recipe, we will actually be using the Instant Pot’s saute mode to sweat the potatoes and onions before adding the remaining ingredients and cooking on Steam mode for 10 minutes. You’re gonna have to peel and dice up a few potatoes and a small onion though.

If you plan to have this recipe cook and then stay for a while in keep warm mode, make sure to add more water in the beginning to be safe.

Equipment used:

Instant Pot Pressure Cooker

Flat Edge Wooden Spoon


Chef’s Knife


  • 2 cups of water
