“This is a very simple recipe I clipped from the newspaper. I make this with turkey kielbasa to lower the fat content and usually use Newcastle or Sam Adams as the beer. The recipe is intended as an appetizer but I see no reason why you couldn't serve it as a main dish with a side of rice and a veggie.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice kielbasa into 1/2-inch pieces.
  2. In a large skillet, bring 1/2 can of beer to a slow boil and add kielbasa.
  3. Cook until the beer is reduced by half, then add the remaining 6 ounces of beer.
  4. Add honey and mustard, and spices to taste.
  5. Let simmer for 5 minutes or until sauce reaches a thick, honey-like consistency.
  6. Saute onion in butter until onions are transparent.
  7. Onions may be mixed into the finished sauce, or added as a garnish.
