Kielbasa, also called kielbasy or Polish sausage, is a spicy sausage usually made with pork (though beef is sometimes added). It comes in chunky links, and is sold precooked. I haven’t met anyone yet who didn’t like this dish. I even like it and I really don’t care for kielbasa that much! Another bonus is that it is easy to make, and is yet another recipe for your slow cooker.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup prepared horseradish
  • 2 pounds kielbasa sausage, sliced thin

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 In a slow cooker combine the sugar, ketchup and horseradish. Add the sausage, and mix well. Cook on High until it starts to boil. Reduce heat to Low, and cook until sauce thickens, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

  1. Yum! Tweaked a little based on other reviews...1/2 cup brown sugar (plenty!), 1/4 cup ketchup, 1/4 cup BBQ sauce, 1/4 cup horseradish sauce. After thinly slicing, browned the kielbasa in a large skillet and then drained it. Poured the sauce ingredients into the warm skillet, mixed together and then returned the kielbasa. Let it simmer - Read more ...
  2. Awesome appetizer! I really thought it might have too much horse radish in it but that was not the case at all. We served this for the Super Bowl and just loved it. I will definitely make it again.
  3. Wow, was this YUMMY! Being a Polish girl, I never had kielbasa this way! lol I read the reviews and grilled my kielbasa lightly on the BBQ so that fat would not drip into the crockpot. (I love my kielbasa BBQ'd). Then to my dismay, I discovered that my husband used the last of our - Read more ...
  4. Very easy - my husband loved it. I read all the previous reviews and decided to make the following adjustments - used only 2/3 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup ketchup and 1/4 cup BBQ sauce sprinkle of dried mustard a few shakes of Worchestershire sauce and as directed 1/4 cup of horseradish. Yes you must - Read more ...
  5. The first time I tried this recipe, I enjoyed it, but it was a little too sweet for my taste, and not spicy enough. When I made it again last night, I cut the brown sugar down by at least half, increased the horseradish by 75% or so, and added Dijon mustard, barbecue sauce, Worchestire - Read more ...
  6. Made this with Boar's Head Horseradish Sauce instead of plain horseradish because I didn't have have any and halved the sugar. It was sweet enough. Also, I did it on the stove top and it turned out fine. This is also a great sauce to use for those little cocktail weiners you heat in a - Read more ...
  7. I brought this to the fireman's potluck steakfry this past weekend - my crockpot was practically licked clean! I recieved rave reviews from everyone!! A great recipe Nancy - I'll be sure to bring it to several other events!
  8. This was good after 2 hours one hour on high and one on low. A previous reviewer said they left it on low for 6 hours and it was great. I left it in for about 6 hours and it was so gross. The crockpot was filled with grease and the kielbasa was way overcooked. - Read more ...
  9. This is one of our favorites! I have found through trial and error, it is better baked in the oven rather than the slow cooker. Oven cooking gives it more of a "candied" apperarance, whereas the crock-pot version is more watery. If you want to try it the oven way, just well-grease a 13 X - Read more ...
