  • 24 ounces Polish Kielbasa portioned into 6 pieces
  • 3 cups bell peppers, any color, sliced into 1/4" strips
  • 1 cup red onion, sliced into 1/4" strips
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Sweet and Spicy Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Set up a barbecue grill on medium high heat for indirect cooking, which means the coals/flames/heat is on one side.
  • Cut the kielbasa into 6 portions and cook on indirect heat until golden and the skin starts to split, approximately 20 minutes.
  • At the same time, preheat a 10" cast iron skillet or similar directly over the heat source and then add the olive oil.
  • Add the onions, peppers, and salt. Sauté for 1-2 minutes over the heat and then move the skillet to the indirect side of the grill.
  • After 5-10 minutes, when the onions and peppers are tender-crisp, whisk together the sauce ingredients and stir into the vegetables.
  • Continue to cook until the sauce is fragrant, begins to caramelize, and the onions and peppers reach the desired tenderness.
  • Toast hoagie or bratwurst buns over the flames if desired and serve the sausage with the onions and peppers over it.
