Very good! The beer adds a nice flavor to this dish. From Chatelaine magazine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly coat a large wide saucepan with oil and set over medium heat. Prick sausages with a fork, then place in pan. Turn often until browned, 6 to 7 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, slice onions in half. Place cut-side down on a cutting board. Thinly slice into strips.
  3. Core and seed peppers, then slice into thick strips. When sausages are browned, add onions and peppers to pan. Sprinkle with sugar. Stir frequently until onions start to soften, 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add beer, Dijon and salt. Stir until mustard is blended inches Boil gently, uncovered, until liquid is reduced by half and sausages are cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes.
  5. Great with hunks of pumpernickel and sliced dill pickles.
  6. Tomorrow's lunch: Reheat in the microwave or a frying pan, then tuck sausages, onions and peppers into a hotdog bun.

A very pleasant preparation for kielbasa. I enjoyed the nice glaze the beer-dijon combination made. Thanks.
