About this recipe: This is a super-easy slow cooker recipe. Kielbasa (smoked sausage) is slowly cooked in a sauce made with chilli sauce, redcurrant jelly, crushed chillies and water. Enjoy over rice, if desired.
Kielbasa are smoked Polish sausages. You can purchase them in Polish delis. If unavailable, use Mattessons smoked pork sausage instead.
Family and friends gathered for a birthday party and I have to tell you the guest of honor was the crockpot full of this recipe! I like having something "hot and cooked" among the many dips, and various other finger foods at parties and this worked like a charm. Put it in the pot and forget it til time to serve. This will prove to be a favorite in future events at our house. Copies of the recipe were made for several guests who loved this delightful dish. No muss, no fuss, just good eating. Thank you!! - 31 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Super-easy and very yummy! Instead of using my crock pot today, I boiled the sauce to a smooth consistency and then I threw everything else into the pan (eliminating the water) and added green and red pepper for more nutrition. Quick and easy supper! - 20 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
PLEASE READ: I submitted this recipe, so perhaps l shouldn't rate it, esp because I just noticed that the amount (posted) of red pepp flakes SHOULD be 1 TEAS, NOT 1 TBLS! I like things w/a kick, but this is a recipe I serve to crowds (mult serv made) & not everyone likes things spicy....1 tsp is enough to give it a kick, w/out putting more sensitive pallets off....PLease try..Also, I've done s&s w/grape jelly before, & I feel the currant jelly makes a (good) difference...Lastly, my supermarket sells a variety of "grades" of kielbasa....Hillshire Farms is my (preferred) choice...Not super expensive, & the "really cheap stuff" just doesn't come out as well (& I'm always looking for a way to save a buck!) - 07 May 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
