Better than it smelled (or looks)
--Kielbasa with Beer & Onions
Kielbasa with Beer & Onions
Cooking with Beer Copyright 2008
1/3 cup honey mustard I used some Dijon mixed with honey
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
18 ounces brown ale or beer I used 12 ounces
2 kielbasa sausages (16 ounces each), cut into 4-inch pieces I used Lite
2 onions, quartered
Combine honey mustard and brownsugar in Crock-Pot slow cooker. Whisk in ale. Add sausage pieces. Top with onions.
Cover; cook on Low 4 to 5 hours,stirring occasionally.
Okay, so this picture doesn't do this recipe justice but I thought it turned out really well. I wasn't so sure while it was cooking - the beer smell didn't do much for me. But it happened that the taste was great and the kielbasa was nice and tender. I didn't get any of the juice in the picture but there was plenty of it, so this would be great served with some crusty bread. I didn't have any crusty bread so I made some mashed potatoes.
I think this would be nice as party food too, for a casual party. It's good 'man food'.
This was one of those pamphlets from the supermarket checkout that I picked up. The prices are ridiculous on those ($3.99 for this little one I think) but sometimes I just need a fix.
Question of the Day: Do you ever throw parties? How often?
