“This easy, delicious recipe is great for barbeques and parties. The kielbasa is soaked in a wonderfully sweet and tart marinade. The longer it simmers the better!”

Such an easy recipe and went over great at our church XMAS fellowship. I used 3 lbs. kielbasa instead of 2 and it was wonderful. Just for reference, 3 lbs. made about 100 bite size pieces. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks.



Couldn't be easier to make--although I would used 1 can of cranberry sauce next time, instead of two. Everyone loved them.



Very easy. I halved the recipe and made it in the crock pot on low for a couple of hours. Previous review was on the money, the longer it cooks the better it tastes. I suggest 4-6 hours on low in Crock pot. I used a brown sugar BBQ sauce -came a little more sweet than I thought it would but that was my fault in choosing the BBQ sauce.
