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.
