SLOW COOKER ISLAND KIELBASA



I love making this in the Spring and Summer months. The flavorful mix of the kielbasa and pineapple just brings to mind sunshine. Best part, well lots to make this recipe super fantastic: Slow-Cooker, 4 ingredients plus rice and it's even better as a left over!! Yum

While our favorite way to have this is over rice for dinner, I have also doubled the recipe and kept it in the slow-cooker for a party app. Just put a little container of toothpicks beside it and its a pineapple and kielbasa party Hors d'Oeuvre

You can use a smoked sausage but we prefer the taste and less fat factor of a turkey Polska Kielbasa with this. The Butterball brand has the best flavor!! I use it in all finds of dishes.  

What you'll need

SLOW COOKER ISLAND KIELBASA
Ingredients
1 package Polska Kielbasa, cut into rounds
1 20 oz can pineapple chunks in their own juice
1 cup Ketschup
1 cup brown sugar
brown or white rice, cooked

Directions
Brown sausage on both sides in a large skillet. Place in a crock-pot or slow cooker. In a medium bowl mix the pineapple juice from the pineapple, the brown sugar and the ketchup until well blended and our over the sausage. Cook on low for about 4 hours. Serve over rice if desired or as I mentioned as Hors d'Oeuvres.
What I like to do is brown the smoked sausage pieces a little on both sides to really bring out the flavor, then I add all the ingredients and transfer skillet contents to the slow cooker.

So flavorful!! For some reason when I eat it, I think I'm in Hawaii, lol. A girl can dream!!

  9. I heart Kielbasa but have only ever tried it cooked from the grill. I definitely have to try this recipe especially for a party appetizer instead of meatballs in the slow cooker.
