Glazed Kielbasa

We make this dish pretty often in our house because its easy, delicious and cheap. It makes me feel like quite a fancy cook too but it's really quite simple. I would love to hear if you try it and what you think!


Glazed Kielbasa (Click the title to get the printable recipe)


Ingredients:
  • 1 package cooked Kielbasa  (make sure you get plain Kielbasa, its too much flavor with anything else)
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley
  • Cracked black pepper to taste

Directions:

1.) Bring wine to a boil in a large pot.



2.) Cut Kielbasa into 1 inch pieces and add to the wine. Reduce temperature to medium-low and cook 10 to 12 minutes until Kielbasa is heated through.

3.) Add mustard and brown sugar. Mix well. Bring back up to boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook uncovered about 10 minutes or until sauce is thickened and Kielbasa is well glazed. Stirring frequently.



4.) Before serving stir in parsley and pepper.



Tips:
  • Don't stress out if your sauce isn't thick enough! Serve it up with some couscous or rice on the side and let that absorb some of the glaze.
  • Taste, Taste, Taste. Always taste your food as you cook it. Maybe you want a little more mustard flavor or more pepper.
  • Don't freak out if you don't have fresh parsley just use dried parsley. You could always try another herb like cilantro or a little basil too.
  • You might want to double the recipe. That's what I usually have to do. My husband really likes this stuff and when I double it we can enjoy it again the next day for either lunch or dinner.
Next time I'll share the roasted carrots that I served along side the Kielbasa.

    1. Gina there are a couple options you could try. Chicken or vegetable stock, white grape or apple juice. If you go with juice get no sugar added. Another thought I had was a dry sparkling apple cider might be good too. I would love to know what you try and how it turns out since I haven't tried a substitute for the wine before.

  9. I'm making this tonight because my boyfriend actually sent me that recipe and said he wanted it lol he won't be home for a few hours. You think I could make this in a slow cooker?

    1. I'm not sure that the sauce would thicken in the slow cooker. It doesn't hurt to experiment though. If you try that method let me know how it turns out!
