Famous Erica's Garlic, Beer, and Kielbasa Sandwiches with Sauerkraut
My friend Erica Allen just became FAMOUS. If you look at the April edition of Taste of Home magazine, you will find her recipe for Cuban-Style Pork Chops right inside! I hope you will check it out because Erica is an awesome cook. She very graciously offered me this recipe which includes basically all my favorite food groups: kielbasa, garlic, sauerkraut and of course BEER.
I love beer.
So without further ado... here's Famous Erica's recipe for:
- 1 package kielbasa cut in 2 inch pieces then split
- 2 Tbsp minced garlic
- 1 can budweiser or any type but not light
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- Can sauerkraut
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
- Long rolls
- Mustard for condiment
Place cut kielbasa in pan cut side down. Pour on 1/4 of the beer. Add garlic and brown over med heat uncovered. Add paprika and pepper. Add another 1/4 of beer when evaporated. Add soy sauce and sauerkraut. Flip kielbasa pieces. Add another 1/4 of beer when evaporated. Let cook on low. Sprinkle 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar and mix in. Continue on med heat for 15 min or until brown. Transfer to oven to brown well at 350° for 15 min. Add last bit of beer can , if dry.
Can't wait to try it, Erica! Thanks for the recipe!
