Sweet onion kielbasa

(Preparation 5 minutes, cooking time 25 minutes)

1 pound kielbasa sausage


1 small onion, chopped

2 tablespoons butter

12-ounce can beer (darker beer gives more flavor)

1/3 cup honey

2 or 3 tablespoons spicy, brown or Dijon mustard

Pepper and/or chili powder (or favorite spices), to taste

Slice kielbasa into 1/2-inch medallions. Sauté; onion in butter until onions are transparent. In a large skillet, bring half a can of beer to a slow boil and add kielbasa. Cook until the beer is reduced by half, then add the remaining half a can of beer. Add honey and mustard and spices. Let simmer for 5 minutes or until sauce reaches a thick, honey-like consistency. Onions may be mixed into the finished sauce or added to the top as garnish. Makes 4 to 6 appetizer-size servings.
