Slow Cooker Sausage, Potatoes and Green Beans



Who doesn’t like a one pot meal? You go to work and come home to a great smelling house with dinner hot, cooked and ready to serve. Use your favorite smoked sausage or kielbasa, potatoes, fresh green beans, add a sliced onion, pour a can of chicken broth on top then salt and pepper……that’s it!

Ingredients: then just salt and pepper.

Peel and cut your onion in half. Slice and break the pieces apart.


Peel and cut the potatoes into large but bite size pieces. If you cut them too small they will fall apart so bigger is better.


I don’t normally put okra in this meal but I wanted to see how okra held up in the slow cooker. It completely disintegrated and was a waste of my okra. So although I show the okra in the picture, I will leave it out of the printable recipe.


Wash and cut the tips off the fresh green beans. Slice each green bean in two.


Slice the sausage into about 1-1/2″ pieces.


Place all of the ingredients into the slow cooker.


Mix the ingredients together. Pour chicken broth over the ingredients and sprinkle with salt & pepper.

  1. I love this…except for the green beans. We have a troubled relationship (probably not reconcilable). I’m thinking green cabbage would work nicely as a substitute…

  2. Is this served more as a soup? IF not, what are you doing with the chicken broth when meal is done?

    • No I do not serve this as a soup. I scoop out the food. There is only a can of broth in this however, when I have enough broth left from slow cooking, I bag it up and freeze it for soup in the winter. We love soup! Thanks for you question!
