Skillet Beans and Rice with Kielbasa

Amy @ Very Culinary


(Ingredients modified to include Aldi brand name)

  • 1 tablespoon Carlini extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Countryside Creamery unsalted butter
  • 1 package (14 ounce) Parkview polska kielbasa, diced
  • 1 medium sweet onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup Rice Bowl white rice
  • 2 cups Chef’s Cupboard chicken broth
  • 1 can (14 ounce) Dakota’s Pride pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Stonemill Essentials Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked Stonemill Essentials red pepper flakes
  • Stonemill Essentials salt and Stonemill Essentials pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley –> Not sold in Aldi stores. May sub with dried parsley.


  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium-high. Add the kielbasa and onion; sauté until onions become soft and translucent (about 3 minutes), stirring occasionally. Add in the garlic and stir for about 30 seconds.
  2. Stir in the rice, chicken broth, beans, Italian seasoning, cracked red pepper, and a dash of salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 20-22 minutes until rice is done.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley. Serve immediately and enjoy!
