At around $10 for a large pot of food, this is a winning budget-friendly dish.

In fact, it’s one of my family’s favorites and it doesn’t take much effort at all. I feel like every family has their own variation of this simple meal and this one is ours! Feel free to use kielbasa as the sausage ingredient if you’d like.

You can prepare sausage, green beans, and potatoes inside a deep skillet with a lid on the stove or you can use a Dutch oven.

A flavorful stew-like meal filled with sausage, fresh green beans, and potatoes.


In a large pot on the stove, turn heat to medium and melt the butter. Sauté onions and garlic together until fragrant and translucent.


Place potatoes in the pot and stir all together with Cajun seasoning. You can also season with salt and pepper.


Add green beans and sliced sausage over top. Pour in the broth, cover the pot with the lid, and cook on low heat for about 30-40 minutes until the potatoes are fork-tender as desired. Stir well, and serve warm. Enjoy!

Tips for making green beans, sausage, and potatoes as a weeknight one pot meal: 

  • Season this meal as desired. The sausage adds lots of nice flavors, but you can turn it up a notch using garlic and Cajun seasoning like I did (or any other savory herb seasonings your family enjoys). It’s easy to adjust to taste.
  • I’ve made sausage, green beans, and potatoes using the Instant Pot as well and it works great, too! Simply place all ingredients including 3/4 cup of chicken broth in the pot. Set the cooking time on HIGH or MANUAL for 3 minutes, followed by a quick release.
  • Some readers have said they make this in a slow cooker! Try 6-8 hours on low until the potatoes are tender.
  • Use the type of potato your family enjoys. I have used reds, russet, Yukon, and baby potatoes. They are all YUM!
  • You can use canned green beans or fresh ones. If using canned, you would just need to throw them in at the end to warm up.

We love this easy weeknight sausage and potatoes recipe!

This is one of my husband’s childhood favorite dinners and I know it’s popular in the Midwest where he is from. I love that it’s versatile, affordable, so warm and comforting, and incredibly simple to prepare. Serve with some crusty bread and enjoy!

The best part is you’ll only have one pot to wash after dinner—yippee!

My Hip teammate Emily tried out this sausage, green beans, and potatoes recipe — here’s what she thought of it…

“Why has it taken me so long to make this meal?! It’s honestly delicious. I subbed the sausage for what I had on hand, nixed the onions (since I didn’t feel like making a trip to the store), and it was still so comforting and delicious. I was a little bummed at HOW good this was, because the leftovers I was excited to eat the next day *magically* disappeared. 🤔 This made 4 hearty servings for under $10 so I have a feeling this is going to be a new regular meal in my house.”
