About this recipe: An easy, sweet and sour recipe made in the slow cooker. The sauce that coats the smoked sausages is sweet, with just the right amount of tang. Serve as a side dish.


Serves: 8 

  • 90g butter
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 220g dark brown soft sugar
  • 400g tomato ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar

  1. Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Saute onions until tender. Stir in dark brown soft sugar, ketchup, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and pepper sauce. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.
  2. Place sausage in a slow cooker with the sauce and onions. Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours. The longer it simmers the better!


Kielbasa are smoked Polish sausages and are available at Polish delis. If unavailable, substitute in Mattessons smoked pork sausage.

Very tasty sticky and sweet but with some punch. Used the mattesons smoked sausage. Will be making again. Couldn't be bothered to simmer the sauce just brought it to boil and chucked it in the pot and it worked just fine - 09 Jan 2013
