Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Kielbasa – sliced kielbasa cooked in the crockpot in a delicious sweet and sour sauce. This is perfect over rice for an easy weeknight dinner or served by itself for a party snack!
Hi guys, I have the easiest recipe ever for you today.
My kids absolutely love this Sweet and Sour Chicken recipe and would happily eat it every night but I just haven’t been up to frying lately.
I was watching a vlog the other day and whoever I was watching mentioned Sweet and Sour Kielbasa and clearly I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Kielbasa
The great thing about this recipe is that, even though it’s a slow cooker recipe, it’s ready in 2 hours!
So if you’re an amazing procrastinator like me, you can still have dinner ready in time if you’re too lazy/tired/busy on Pinterest to put it in the slow cooker first thing in the morning. I actually put it in the slow cooker right before we left for soccer practice and by the time we got home, it was ready to go.
My boys went nuts over it. They ate all of it.
The entire recipe.
My two older boys were actually arguing over who was going to eat what was left on the baby’s plate (there was none).
How To Make Crockpot Sweet and Sour Kielbasa
This is such an easy recipe! You can have it in your slow cooker in literally minutes.
The sauce is made from ketchup, brown sugar, worcestershire sauce, butter, diced onion, and white vinegar. That’s it. I bet you already have everything in your pantry! That gets whisked together in the bottom of your slow cooker.
Then you just slice the kielbasa into bite-size pieces and nestle the pieces into the sweet and sour sauce. Put the slow cooker on low for 2 hours or high for just 1 hour and dinner is done!
If I am making this Sweet and Sour Kielbasa for dinner, I serve it over white rice. The sauce thickens up when it cooks so it is perfect for drizzling over the rice.
If I’m doing it for a party or a football game, I just leave it in the slow cooker on warm and set some toothpicks next to it. That way people can snack whenever they feel like it.
