Coca-Cola Kielbasa

There is something about summer that says “sausage" to me. Well, summer says a lot of things to me, but sausage is one of them. While I love to cook it outside on the grill, there are days when the heat and humidity keep me indoors, and it’s on those days when I use recipes such as this one to make it in the slow cooker. If you are short on time and prefer, this can be prepared on top of the stove. Simply sauté shallots in a little bit of oil in a 12-inch skillet until translucent. Add the sausage and remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and then simmer, uncovered, until the sausage is glazed. It’s a winner for dinner, but if you cut it into smaller pieces, it also makes an excellent appetizer or snack.

Coca-Cola Glazed Sausage

3 Melissa‘s shallots
2 lb. kielbasa sausage
¼ c. cider vinegar
2 T. stone ground mustard
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 t. cornstarch
1 7.5-oz. can of Coke

Slice shallots into rounds, and scatter on the bottom of the crockpot. Slice sausage, on the diagonal, into 2-inch lengths; scatter on top of the shallots.

In a small bowl, whisk together cider vinegar, mustard, brown sugar, and cornstarch, and pour over the top of the sausage and onions. Pour the Coke over all. Cook on low for four hours. Remove lid, turn setting to “high,” and cook for an additional hour until sausage is glazed.

I like this kind of just dump everything in the pot and forget about it...when it beeps, the meal is ready :-) This looks mouthwatering.

Ok. Does the coke give it a sweet flavor? I just pulled 2 pkgs of lil smokies outa my freezer. Grandkids coming and they love sausage. Was just trying to figure out a new way to make a snack with them. You must be the sausage genie cuz I needed to pull something out of a magic bottle before tomorrow!!!!!

Not cloyingly so, Janey. I think the mustard offsets the sweetness. It just gives it a wonderful, flavorful glaze. I would think the kids would love it.
