Katzenjammer Kielbasa n' Kraut Recipe

The Beer Fox says, “Music, dancing, and revelry bring a touch of ‘New Year’s magic’ to a late Winter evening. Add to the fun with a traditional dish to ring in the new!”

Recommended Beer:  Old Chub Scottish Style Ale - Oskar Blues Grill & Brewery, Lyons, Colorado, USA

Style: Scottish Ale – Deep mahogany with ruby highlights – Richly malty with notes of fruit and chocolate and a mild bitterness for perfect balance.

5 lbs. kielbasa, cut into pieces
2-1/2 large cans (29 oz.) sauerkraut, well rinsed and drained
1 medium apple, cut in quarters with seeds removed
1/8 C. brown sugar
1 stick butter
12 oz. Old Chub Scottish-Style Ale
3 C. Water
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper

Place kielbasa in shallow pan and bake in oven for 1 hour.

At the same time, combine remaining ingredients in large Dutch oven. Stir to evenly distribute Old Chub Scottish Style Ale throughout. Simmer on low heat while kielbasa is baking.

After 1 hour, remove kielbasa from oven, and transfer it to the simmering ingredients in Dutch oven. Continue to cook for 1-2 hours. Before serving, remove apple.

NOTE: For an added touch, serve with mashed potatoes and Rye Bread.
