I made this today for dinner. The title says it all! Drunken indeed. Bf said the sauce reminds him of the Jack Daniel sauce at TGIF that he likes but the alcohol in this was a bit too strong. We used Wild Turkey whiskey because that's what we had so we may try to use Jack Daniels next time or use less. It makes a lot of sauce in comparison to the Kielbasa so I may use more Kielbasa next time. I tried it plain and on a bun; it was good both ways we will just modify the alcohol a bit next time. Thanks! Read More

The alcohol is this is way too overpowering for us. I tried one during the last hour of cooking and decided to drain them in a colander and rinse. Then I remade the sauce without the alcohol and put on high for about 45 minutes. Good sauce. Will make a again just without the alcohol or a lot less than called for. We used "lite" kielbasa and it was tender and good. Read More

I thought these tasted delicious. I used two packages of keilbasa but did not double the liquids based on other reviews that there was a lot of liquid. I added just a few more ounces of the ketchup and bbq sauce. I did use a little more brown sugar and kept with the 1/2 cup whiskey. Simmered on low for 6 hours just as stated and was very pleased. I did taste test throughout the day and it seems that while it tasted good throughout the day the long simmering time really does the trick and they became so tender after the full 6 hours. Read More

These were delicious! Be sure to add whiskey. I used vodka since that was all we had but whiskey would have been even better. Read More

I used grape jelly omitted the brown sugar and cut back on the whiskey. I also added pepper and cut up a sweet onion and added it to the bottom of the pot. This'll be good beside rice or macaroni and cheese. Read More

Tangy & zippy! Very delicious. I made it just as listed in the recipe. As one other reader indicated it did make a lot of liquid. Probably what I would do next time is add another kielbasa and a tad bit more of each liquid. Will certainly be making this one again. Thanks! Read More

I made this for our Pot Luck at work and our St. Patrick's Day party the next day and everyone LOVED IT!! There were absolutely no leftovers!:) I couldn't get over how easy it was to make and how good it came out! I cut down on the whisky on the advice of the other reviews and added just a bit more brown sugar and it was just perfect. We couldn't stop "testing" it before our guests started arriving lol. I will definitely be making this again - thank you so much for sharing!:D Read More
