Crockpot Kielbasa Potato Soup

Our family really enjoys this meal...it does take some time to prepare--probably close to 40 minutes, maybe more. Get help pealing the potatoes! It is SO worth it though. We get 2 meals out of this. Yum!  I found this recipe at justapinch.com, and adapted it better to our liking.


ingredients:
8 cups water
2 pkgs polska kielbasa sausage (I use beef)--sliced & cut pieces in 1/2
1/2 onion, diced finely
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp celery salt
2 tsp parsley flakes
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
4-5 lbs. potatoes, pealed and cubed

1 stick butter
8 Tbsp flour
1 cup milk

directions:
1.  Put 8 cups water into crockpot (if you have a larger crockpot, use it).

2.  Add to water: kielbasa, onion, seasonings, potatoes,   

3.  Place crockpot on high and let simmer.

4.  Meanwhile, melt butter.  Once the butter is melted, add the flour all at once.  Whisk it constantly over medium-high heat for apx 5 minutes.

5.  Whisk in the cup of milk until it forms a sort of paste.  Remove from heat and stir it into soup well--the heat of the soup will eventually melt the roue and thicken the soup.

6.  Cook on high for 4-6 hours...stirring only once or twice.  When the potatoes are tender (enough) it is done!  Enjoy!
