I served this recipe as the regional dish for the Pittsburgh Steelers for our Super Bowl party. I found the recipe online by googling “steelers recipes” after I couldn’t find anything with my searches for Pittsburgh or Pennsylvania recipes. I didn’t really have very high hopes for it, but it turned out great. I thought it was delicious and by the time I went back for seconds, I was out of luck. The dish had been wiped clean.
Sausage with Dipping Sauce
Adapted from the Post Gazette
1 lb of sausage like kielbasa or farmer’s sausage (I used farmer’s sausage from Costco)
1 cup beer (I used Mt. Begbie Tall Timber Ale)
2 cups chili sauce
1 can (8 oz.) crushed pineapple, drained
3/4 cup brown sugar
Slice the sausage into 1/2 inch-thick rounds. Place in a skillet with the beer over high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook stirring for about 3 to 5 minutes. Drain.
Mix all the sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
Serve the sauce warm with the sausage slices.
