|Kielbasa Two Ways:|
Grilled and BBQ Kielbasa with Lazy Pierogi
First, we boiled each kielbasa in a shallow frying pan for about 10 minutes/side. Then we grilled one kielbasa on the gas grill. Notice the subtle grill marks on the upper kielbasa. The other we broiled in barbeque sauce. Yes, we made bbq kielbasa - maybe not the most traditional Polish dish, but I have been making it for years.
During college I worked with a Polish woman named Amy, who made sweet and sour kielbasa in a crock pot for a pot lock dinner. For many years I too cooked sweet and sour kielbasa with World Harbors Maui Mountain Hawaiian Style sweet n' sour sauce, but I couldn't always find it at the grocery store. By this time my family was hooked on this appetizer so...I improvised. I began using barbeque sauce and it worked! In fact, any bbq sauce is delicious for bbq kielbasa.
For bbq kielbasa:
1. Boil your kielbasa for 10 minutes/side in a shallow frying pan.
2. Let cool then slice.
3. Place the slices into an oven-safe baking dish and cover with your favorite bbq sace (1 jar/ kielbasa).
4. Bake for about an hour at 350°F stirring halfway through. During the last few minutes I broil the kielbasa to crisp and char the edges.
Give this contemporary Polish dish a try. This is my go-to appetizer for family functions because everyone LOVES it. I usually make 2-3 kielbasas and it all gets eaten.
