Reviews for Kielbasa and Kidney Beans
"I wanted to make this today but had no steak sauce. I subbed prepared BBQ sauce instead and I thought it was just as tasty. One of my favorite recipes for using kielbasa, but have made it in the past with smoked sausage and that's good too."
"A very satisfying dish for a busy day. Next time I will use a little less sugar, just personal taste."
"Very, Very tasty. Even my 1 yr. old ate it up. We also served it over rice to make it a heartier meal."
"I think the steak sauce gives it a little zip. Love the recipe because it is quick and flavorful."
"We loved this recipe!! It is so good and so simple to make! I served it over white rice and my husband and I loved it! I will definitely be making this one again."
"This was very good. I also used turkey kielbasa."
"One of my most-used recipes! Also works well as a dish for buffets and pot-lucks!"
"Great recipe! I double the sauce ingredients and use Splenda Brown Sugar Blend in it. Equally good with turkey kielbasa or Hungarian kolbasz. I don't use the steak sauce."
"I was a little dubious at first, but this recipe turned out great! The sauce was flavorful, but not over-powering. The means were a nice balance to the sausage. My husband wants to "have this again soon.""
"I used chicken kielbasa to cut down on the fat and sprayed the pan with spray oil to cut down on calories and fat. My husband doesn't like kielbasa but he enjoyed this dish and would eat it again. I loved the sweet taste the brown sugar added."
"I was looking for a recipe I could use red kidney beans in and this fit the bill. I minced the veggies and cut the sausage a little smaller. Then I put it over cooked rice. My family LOVED it!! This is going into the family recipe book."
"My husband isn't a big fan of casserole-type dinners, but he gave this dish two thumbs up."
