Mrs. Kostyra's Kielbasa


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.


  • 1 two-pound ring kielbasa

  • Rye bread

  • Prepared horseradish

  • Dijon mustard


  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.
