This is a family favorite from growing up and now a family favorite with my husband and kids. The easiest way to describe it is like a sweet n' sour dish.

Great! All of the kids ate and enjoyed it. Adults, too. Easy to fix for a weeknight dinner. Sweet and sour without being overly sweet. I used 11/4 pound good quality kielbasa, and didn't add water when I saut?ed it. Will make again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Our family loves this recipe! In our version, we omit the celery and add in bell pepper instead. I also use a little bit of Tony Sacheries to give it some flavor.

This was great! The description is right on; it tastes like a yummy sweet and sour dish you would order out. I have added it to our family cookbook. What a keeper; love that the ingredients are ones I usually have on hand. Reviewed for PAC Spring 2008
