My family makes this recipe all the time. It is so delicious. I recommend trying it with the pork kielbasa first because that's how we have always made it. I like to use turkey kielbasa now though because it is a bit healthier.

We made this meal last night and it was surprisingly tasty and oh so easy! I halved the recipe and used turkey sausage instead of pork and used crushed pineapple in its own juice instead of heavy syrup (along with the cranberry sauce - with whole cranberries)... and the result was great! I would definitely make this again! Read More

I followed the recipe except for I used crushed pineapple in heavy syrup. The sauce didnt thicken after 1 1/2 hours in the oven so I took it out and simmered it on the stove for 15 minutes. The flavor tasted like it was an after affect. I marked this a three because I had to dirty an extra pot to finish it and the taste was so icky I ended up throwing away the leftovers. Read More

WOW! This is my kind of recipe very quick and very easy. I plan on trying the sauce on baked chicken meatballs and pork chops. It should work. Warning: This one is sweet! Read More

I loved this!!! It was so easy although have to say that it looked unattractive until it all cooked together. I took it to a large party and everyone was asking for the recipe. Wonderful! Read More

Very good although I did add about a 1/2 cup of diced Jalapeños for more of a sweet-n-spicy flavor. Perfect! Read More

I made this yesterday for dinner and served it on hamburger buns and my husband just raved (me to) about how wonderful this is and so easy to prepare. I added 2 T. of brown sugar. I saw this in one review and after tasting with and without the brown sugar I prefer the brown sugar in this recipe. Carolyn Read More

This was good but not great. I liked the taste of the sauce I added a bit of cornstarch to the sauce before cooking but it still wasn't as thick as I would have liked it to be. I thought the kielbasa was a little dry too. Could have been the brand but I think next time I'd cover it while cooking to keep some of the moisture in. Read More
