“Kielbasa, also called kielbasy or Polish sausage, is a spicy sausage usually made with pork (though beef is sometimes added). It comes in chunky links, and is sold precooked. I haven't met anyone yet who didn't like this dish. I even like it and I really don't care for kielbasa that much! Another bonus is that it is easy to make, and is yet another recipe for your slow cooker.”

This is one of our favorites! I have found through trial and error, it is better baked in the oven rather than the slow cooker. Oven cooking gives it more of a "candied" apperarance, whereas the crock-pot version is more watery. If you want to try it the oven way, just well-grease a 13 X 9 dish and bake at 350 for 90 minutes, stirring after every 30 minutes (or until it's as done as your family likes it. My husband prefers it a little dark.) Don't be afraid to try this recipe; it's really easy and nearly everyone who tastes it, just loves it! Good Luck!

The first time I tried this recipe, I enjoyed it, but it was a little too sweet for my taste, and not spicy enough. When I made it again last night, I cut the brown sugar down by at least half, increased the horseradish by 75% or so, and added Dijon mustard, barbecue sauce, Worchestire sauce, and a taste of tabasco sauce. Mmmmmm, yummy! It's delicious! My coworkers all want the recipe. I think another key is to make sure your kielbasa slices are nice and thin. I didn't enjoy it as much the first time I made it when I sliced the sausage too thickly.

Wow, was this YUMMY! Being a Polish girl, I never had kielbasa this way! lol I read the reviews and grilled my kielbasa lightly on the BBQ so that fat would not drip into the crockpot. (I love my kielbasa BBQ'd). Then to my dismay, I discovered that my husband used the last of our horseradish! I didn't want to substitute but I had to use horshradish sauce. Luckily, some other reviewers had done the same and said it turned out great. Well, I have to agree. The sauce was NOT liquidly or runny from too much fat...the horseradish sauce still gave it a nice zing without too much heat (even my six year old son loved it). Just a delicious way to prepare kielbasa. We always grill kielbasa for appetitizers at parties and I was thinking of even making the sauce and serving it on the side for dipping. The combination of the smoked, garlicky kielbasa and the sweet/tangy sauce is sooooooooooooo good! Thanks for a great recipe.
