I love slow cookers. They’re a life saver for me. I can throw everything into the pot with almost no prep work at all and come home to a delicious, hot meal. This dish is great. It’s easy, doesn’t have too many ingredients, and it is good. The kielbasa gets cooked down to a melt-in-your mouth texture and the beer, honey dijon mustard, and sauerkraut flavors come together beautifully.
Slow Cooker Kielbasa and Sauerkraut
2 pounds kielbasa
2 small onions, sliced
1 small apple, chopped
2 14-ounce cans sauerkraut, drained
1 12 fluid ounces can or bottle of beer (I used Sam Adams)
1/4 cup honey Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
- Brown the kielbasa in a cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Transfer browned kielbasa into slow cooker.
- Saute onions in the skillet until browned and transfer into the slow cooker.
- Add the apple, sauerkraut, beer, mustard, and caraway seeds into the slow cooker and stir to combine.
- Cook on low for 6 hours until meat is tender.
