Kielbasa with Apples

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs fresh or smoked kielbasa (For gluten-free recommendations, visit NFCA’s Gluten-Free Hot Products blog.)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter or oilGluten-Free Kielbasa with Apples
  • 12 oz. bottle of gluten-free beer (Each beer will give a different taste, as will different kielbasa.)
  • 2 tsp light brown sugar
  • 1 medium sized onion, peeled, sliced and separated into rings
  • 1 small Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1. If using raw kielbasa, place kielbasa in a skillet, cover with water, bring to the boil, turn down to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Drain and put sausages on a plate. If you use smoked kielbasa, just put them in the skillet with apples and onions as in step #3.

2. In same skillet, melt butter/oil, add onions and gently fry for 5 minutes until browning.  Add apple, and fry for further 5 minutes until softening.

3. Add kielbasa and turn in pan.

4. Add gluten-free beer, salt, pepper, and sugar.  Bring to nearly a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cook covered for about 30 minutes until cooked through. The cooking time will depend on size of pan, quantity being cooked, and how gentle a simmer you can reach. Watch that the liquid doesn’t evaporate. 

Tips & Alternatives: This recipe works with any kind of gluten-free beer. I like to cook this the day before for the flavor really to develop. Then put it in a slow cooker, refrigerate and reheat the next day in the slow cooker. You can also put it on the side of the barbecue to reheat in a foil pan. It’s also great to serve with gluten-free bread to soak up the juices.
