Reviewed Crock Pot Kielbasa & Sauerkraut

Dec 31, 2013 in on Food.com

My uncle made this for Christmas Eve...I don';t even like kielbasa and I HATE sauerkraut but this was absolutely incredible. He used fresh kielbasa from a butcher and I think the draining/rinsing the sauerkraut so it';s not so bitter did the trick. He also added an apple (I assume small diced) and a dash of worcestershire. MUST TRY this r...

This was REALLY good! I followed the recipe as written, took a bit to thicken which was fine bc I had it going while I made the rest of the enchiladas. This was my first time making enchilada sauce, but I don';t think I need to try any other recipes! Definitely better than anything from a can...obviously. :)"

These were really good. I halved the recipe and it was perfect for 2 people then leftovers. Just a couple small changes were that I used diced instead of stewed tomatoes, and I didn't want to use canned sauce so I found a highly rated Mexican Enchilada Sauce on another site - sorry FN! And after preparing the vegetable base, I separated into 2 pan"

This was the first salmon burger I ever made, and I don't see any reason to try a different recipe. Make sure to chop the bell peppers pretty small, it helps with the texture.

This was okay. I followed the recipe, just used the whole mango and added a little squeeze of lime juice. It wasn't bad, but didn't wow me. I've definitely had better black bean salads and unfortunately won't make this one again. Try Paula's Black Bean Salsa or the Neelys Mango Black Bean Tomato salad. "

This was amazing. Made only small changes, nothing that drastically altered it though, just subbing jalapenos since my store was out of serranos, canned tomatoes, and a combo of black & kidney beans. Omitted the broth since I used the juice in the tomatoes, and I also added about 2 tsp of essence in with the other spices. Didn't need the rice. The"

This was delicious! My grocery store was out of serranos so I used jalapenos and doubled the quantities - 1 whole in the sauce and 2 chopped in the meat. It was spicy and amazing. Had it open faced since it was so messy but it was amazing, so many interesting flavor combinations. Highly recommend! "

Loved the marinade and the chipotle cream...but I think what really put these over the edge was topping them with Paula's black bean salsa - don't worry it's one of the few recipes that she doesn't begin with a stick of butter.
