Sweet and Sour Kielbasa

I've been trying to use my slow cooker once a week to conserve energy and keep the heat out of the kitchen. I came across this recipe and thought it had potential. You never know with sweet and sour sauces, everyone has their own style they prefer. This is a great family friendly meal. It's a ketchup based sauce so it's more like a meatball sauce than an Asian sauce. However, we gobbled it all up and there wasn't any left! It would be great for a party but you would have to triple the recipe. It's a perfect size for a young family. Enjoy!

3 TBS butter
1 white or yellow onion, sliced
1 cup packed brown sugar
14 oz. ketchup
3 TBS cider vinegar
1 long squirt of spicy brown mustard
1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
A shake of hot sauce (or more if you prefer)
1 lb. turkey kielbasa, cut into 1 in. pieces
slow cooker bag (to make life easy)

Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook until tender. Stir in brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire and hot sauce. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Put slow cooker bag in crock. Place sausage in slow cooker and top with sauce/onion mix. Cook on low for 4-5 hours. The longer it simmers, the better it is. Great with steamed rice.
