Slow-cooked kielbasa with sauerkraut in beer and brown sugar. Beer and brown sugar in a slow cooker You may serve kielbasa during your Super Bowl party or just eat it during the week. It has just the right amount of sweetness and sourness, and it tastes great!
You couldn’t find an easier dish to prepare for a big event like the Super Bowl. Another option is a Wednesday night meal, which is what we did this week.
It may sound strange, and you may not even like sauerkraut, but hear me out. It has a tangy and sweet flavor, we couldn’t stop thinking about it! I used to skip sauerkraut. I am not a very big fan. But not until I tried this recipe. The sauerkraut along with the rest of the ingredients makes the best dinner! As for the beer, well, I suppose you can use anything you like. Don’t take my word for it on beer selection because I, uh, bought the ones with the nicest cans.
You can store the cooked kielbasa for up to 4 days. Just keep them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge.
16 oz. sauerkraut, drained well
12 oz. beer
3 lbs kielbasa
1 c. brown sugar
