I thought the molasses flavor was too strong. Next time will add some brown sugar as suggested. I also thought it needed a little something else like maybe some onions and green bell pepper while browning the sausage. Read More

We thought the sauce had too strong of a molasses flavor so we sweetened with a tablespoon of brown sugar. This helped with the flavor but over all my family just didn't like this one; especially my kids. Read More

There's nothing mind-blowing about this recipe but it's quick easy and great for when you're running low on groceries. I omitted the molasses and added a little brown sugar. Not bad at all. Thanks! Read More

Considering the limited ingredients I was not expecting gourmet fare. As per other reviews I added a TBSP. of brown sugar and then after tasting it I still felt that it needed SOMETHING. So I added some diced green pepper and a bit of crushed pineapple. Unfortunately it still turned out like something that I won't ever make again. Read More

This was not good as is. The ratio from meat to sauce was extremely way off. I followed to a T and there was 4 to 5 times the amount of sauce to 1 pound of meat before I had to salvage what I made. I don't know if it was to sauce up the rice that much because the rice and sausage would be swimming. But I had tons of sauce left over that get got wasted. The molasses was way to strong and way to sweet for this. I had to try and salvage this so that my kids would eat the BBQ w/ sausage I added the optional BBQ sauce and it even over powered it. I totally had to add the 6 ounces of remaining tomato sauce(because we can't get 10oz sized cans where I live) so it was entire 16 ounces of tomato sauce and ended up using a full 1/2 cup of BBQ because 1/4 cup just didn't cut out the sweetness of the molasses either. Sorry...won't make again. Read More

WONDERFUL! I LOVE kielbasa! And this was just great! I was a litle nervous about so much molasses but just keep cooking it and makes the meat taste so good! Read More

This was given mixed reviews at our dinner table. I enjoyed the flavors and so did one of our kids but 3 didn't so will probably change it up a bit next time. I did an an onion and used honey bbq sauce. The sauce wasn't thick enough for me so I mixed a little cornstarch and that worked well. Read More
