There were just 2 of us, but me and my husband polished off the entire pot!



2 lbs kielbasa sausage, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper



Place the sliced kielbasa in the slow cooker in an even layer.

In a bowl, combine brown sugar, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper.

Pour the mixture over the kielbasa and toss to coat.

Cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours.

Stir the kielbasa before serving to coat it in sauce again.

Serve warm from the slow cooker, ensuring ample sauce for each serving.

Variations & Tips:


Add red pepper flakes for a spicy kick.
