Sweet and Sour Turkey Kielbasa

This recipe is just an easy dish that can be ready in less than 30 minutes after a hard day’s work!  You can substitute the turkey kielbasa for chicken, pork, or beef — whatever you’re in the mood for that day.  You can even take out the meat all together and have a yummy vegetarian friendly meal!  You can add more or less veggies than the recipe allows; it doesn’t really matter as long as you get the sauce right!

Ingredients

Sauce
  • Juice  from one 15-1/4 oz. can of pineapple, drained
  • 1/4 cup pineapple chunks from can, chopped
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon mustard
  • 3/4 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Rest of the Dish
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 rope of turkey kielbasa  (I like Hillshire Farms turkey polska kielbasa), sliced into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 2 cups mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 cup mixed bell peppers, chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. To make the sauce, mix all the ingredients together [except for the pineapple chunks] and cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring occasionally.  Add pineapple chunks at the end.
  2. In a large pan or wok, heat the oil over medium heat for a couple of minutes.
  3. Once oil is hot, cook the onion papers until the onion is somewhat translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Cook the remaining veggies and the kielbasa for approximately 15 additional minutes.
  5. When the veggies and kielbasa are cooked, pour the sweet and sour sauce over and mix until the veggies and kielbasa are evenly coated.
  6. Transfer to a serving dish and serve hot!
