Steamed Kielbasa,Sauerkraut and Pierogies

This is from Family Circle January page 97.  The reason this caught my eye is that it combines 3 of my favorite things, as noted in the title.  I did not follow the recipe exactly.  I used the sausage pictured instead of the one in the recipe.  I also did not use only 7 of the mini pierogies, I used the whole box.
Kielbasa, mustard, onions, brown sugar and vinegar mixed together.

 Sauerkraut at the bottom of crock.

Sausage mix on top.

Disclaimer, I do NOT like mustard.  In fact, I hate mustard.  I went ahead and got the kind of mustard the recipe called for.  It actually wasn't that bad.  It works in the recipe.  Don't get me wrong, I don't plan on smearing this stuff all over my sandwiches...

All the kids in the pool.

After about 4 hours on high, add the pierogies.

On eating this right away... YUMMY!!!!!  Obviously I couldn't eat it all at once so I threw the leftovers in the fridge.

Day 2, still good, but a little tangy.

Day 3, very tangy and barely able to finish.

I'm going to do this again.  I think I'm going to double the sugar and leave out the cider vinegar.  The saurekraut has enough vinegar on it's own. I liked the mustard flavor but might cut that back a bit.

I also think eating this with some sour cream would cut some of the sourness.  Also might add a can of diced tomatoes.
