Tropical Kielbasa for the Crock Pot

READY IN: 6hrs 15mins
Recipe by 3KillerBs

The smokiness of the kielbasa is the perfect complement for the creamy smoothness of sweet potatoes and the brightness of the pineapple. A definite kid-pleaser and guy-pleaser.

I couldn't find any kielbasa, so I substituted chicken chorizo sausages, halving everything except the teriyaki marinade (I used Kikkoman) in a 3.5l slow cooker for 8 hours at low. It was quite good, but something was not quite right, though I couldn't pinpoint it. I suspect, as NC Gal found, Kikkoman teriyaki marinade is not for this recipe. I couldn't eat a lot of it, because it got a bit too much, but DH finished it all himself, within a day. I might try again with a different brand of teriyaki marinade, and different sausages. Very affordable and easy to make, for sure.
