This recipe shows you how to kick up the flavor of traditional kielbasa links by marinating in a homemade gluten-free sauce. You have to pay close attention to the label on commercial marinades and sauces for gluten; making it yourself, takes the guesswork out.

Preparation time: 5 minutes, plus marinating time

Cook time: 10 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

1-1/2 tablespoons dark corn syrup

2 teaspoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger

1 teaspoon brown mustard

1 teaspoon gluten-free Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon gluten-free soy sauce

1 pound kielbasa links

  1. Place the corn syrup, oil, ginger, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and soy sauce in a gallon-size self-seal bag. Swish it around to blend the ingredients.

  2. Add the kielbasa to the bag. Seal the bag and push the sausage around so it’s evenly covered with marinade.

  3. Refrigerate the sausage for at least 1 hour.

  4. Preheat the broiler.

  5. Remove the kielbasa from the bag and place it on a broiler pan. Drizzle the marinade over the top of the meat.

  6. Broil the meat for approximately 10 minutes, turning several times, until the kielbasa is barely charred on the outside and cooked through.

Always read the ingredients of any package you buy, but this holds especially true when buying sausage because some fillers used in making sausage contain wheat and wheat byproducts.
