"Kielbasa slices and baby Brussels sprouts cooked with red onion make a hearty main dish. I serve this with macaroni and cheese and a loaf of French bread. Even the kids love it! My husband likes to eat his with spicy brown mustard."

red onion, chopped
baby Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
salt and ground black pepper to taste
This is sooooo good--here's a little tip from an old German lady--It's ok to use 2-3 Tbs of water in place of the canola oil for cooking the kielbasa,(kielbasa is already greasy) onions, and brussel sprouts, just keep an eye on it and add more water as it evaporates--the onions will still sweeten up and carmelize cooked in water.
I didn't like this very much, but it's not due to the recipe, which was fine. I thought I'd try Brussels sprouts and DH loves them, but I learned I definitely do not like Brussels sprouts! I like cabbage only a little and these tasted too much like cabbage to me. The kielbasa and onions part was good tho.
This was a really odd, but really good combination. I served it with egg noodles as a previous reviewer recommended and served it with spicy mustard as the original author recommended.
Spicy mustard + Egg Noodles + Kielbasa = Quite Tasty!
My family loved the Brussel sprouts, as they absorb some of the flavor from the sausage and onions.
I would have never thought to do this on my own. Quite different, and surprisingly good.
I have a slight variation of this dish, and use it as a main dish. Marinate the brussel sprouts, onions and kielbasa with the seasonings listed, but add chopped garlic and mushrooms. Bake in the oven until the brussel sprouts are to your liking. YUM!
This was a great basic recipe to build upon. I added beer to the pan with the oil and onion and sauteed it with the kielbasa. I added a little more beer with the brussel sprouts, then I covered the pan to let the ingredients simmer in the liquid. When the sprouts were cooked through, I took them and the kielbasa out and put them in a bowl to hold. I then added more oil to the pan and some roasted garlic smashed with salt. I then deglazed the pan with beer, and kept slowly adding more beer to get to the consistency I wanted. I added some dijon mustard and salt and pepper to taste, then added the kielbasa and sprouts back into the pan and tossed to coat. I served it with parmesan and cracked pepper polenta... delicious!
This was very simply put, delicious. Made for dinner this evening. Hubby loved it. Followed recipe exactly. Letting the onions carmelize, I think is the secret to this simple,tasty meal. I used a 16oz. bag of frozen petite brussel sprouts, thawed. Was wonderful served over hot buttered egg noodles. Will definately make again. Thanks for great recipe.
This is an awesome dish for a main or a side! Me and my husband have had a hard time finding brussel sprout recipes that our daughter would eat, but this is one of them! Very delicious! However, we didn't use any canola oil because of the kielbasa having enough drippings already.
This was pretty good the onions came out delicious and so did the kielbasa, I wasn't impressed with the brussle sprouts and I normally love them, the don't get as soft as I like them but I did serve over buttered egg noodles which was great! I will probably make the kielbasa with the onions again hold the brussle sprouts
Edit, I made this again last night and covered the dish while the brussle sprouts cooked, it allowed them to steam more, get softer and soak up more flavor, this time I served it over buttered mashed potatoes and it was delish! 5 stars!!!
