Mrs. Kostyra's Kielbasa

60

Mrs. Kostyra shares her special way of cooking kielbasa, which ensures a crispy skin. She notes that it is important to pierce the sausage casing so that it doesn't crack while cooking.

  • Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 two-pound ring kielbasa
  • Rye bread
  • Prepared horseradish
  • Dijon mustard

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a pot of simmering water, poach kielbasa for 20 minutes. Remove from pot, and transfer to a roasting pan with about 1 cup of the poaching water. Using a fork, poke the skin of the kielbasa to prevent it from cracking. Roast until brown and crispy, about 20 minutes.

  2. Slice kielbasa on the diagonal into 1/2-inch slices. Serve with rye bread, horseradish, and mustard.

    We always poach our kielbasa 20 min. for fresh and 8 min for smoked. It makes the inside so juicey and delicious. I only poke the ends because I like the crisp snap of the skin. This recipe is perfect.

    This recipe is for fresh kielbasa -- no need to "poach" smoked sausage. Enjoy!
