A lower-calorie, lower-fat version of a recipe I found on another site. You can use regular pork kielbasa, double the brown sugar and leave out the artificial sweetener to mimic the original recipe.
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 2 large onions, sliced
- 1⁄2 cup packed brown sugar
- 0.5 (28 ounce) bottle ketchup
- 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce (optional)
- 1 lb turkey kielbasa, cut into 1 inch pieces
- artificial sweetener, to equal 1/2 cup of sugar
- Melt butter in a large skillet.
- Sauté onions until soft and translucent.
- Add brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and pepper sauce. If using sucralose, acesulfame or saccharine, add it at this point also. Simmer 20 minutes.
- Put sausage in a slow cooker. Add sauce and onions. Cook on low 4-8 hours.
- If using aspartame, stir in just before serving.
Great! Made the higher fat version, and added 1 can of pineapple (omitted white sugar, figured it traded) and only had about an hour to simmer on the stove but was still wonderful with the changes. Thanks!
Delicious! I was looking for a new way to make kielbasa, and I'm so glad I tried this recipe. I used regular kielbasa, and white sugar in place of the artificial sugar. It was a hit -- a great combination of flavors -- and everyone said how much they liked it! Thanks for posting.
