Kielbasa and Kraut {Slow Cooker}

I love love love Kielbasa. I don't like the grease that comes along with it. So when I was in the store I am saying to myself they must have a Turkey version and after some searching I found it! Simmered in yummy Bavarian Sauerkraut all seasoned up, this dish was delicious. I paired it along with my sweet potato perogies. It was a fantastic meal. I hope everyone has a great week and stays warm here on the east coast!
1 tablespoon butter
1 red onion thinly sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 apple peeled cored and thinly sliced
1/2 cup maple syrup
salt and pepper
1 15oz can Bavarian Sauerkraut
2 13.5oz Turkey Kielbasa links

In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Saute onion, sprinkle with some salt. Continue sauteing until clear then add the brown sugar. Cook another 10 minutes until the onions are caramelized. Add the apple cook for 3 minutes then add the sauerkraut. Season with salt and pepper. Mix all together then add to slow cooker. In the same pan brown Kielbasa links until they have nice little scorch marks on them. Place the links on top of the Kielbasa in the slow cooker. Pour maple syrup over the top. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high for 4.

  2. My husband grew up with a Polish woman taking care of him. He always says he misses kielbasa. Your recipe has inspired me to make it for him. Thanks for sharing this on foodie friday.
