Wok's For Dinner: Kielbasa & Pineapple Kabobs

On Sundays, I like to keep dinner simple and easy to prepare, whether it's a one-pot meal, something cooked in the crock-pot, or a meal like what we had tonight, kabobs!

I love the taste of grilled pineapple and had a fresh one in the fridge that needed to be used.  Our grill is currently on the fritz, but I figured that the broiler would be a perfect substitute.  Add some kielbasa, bell pepper, and a sweet & tangy sauce...voila!  Delicious dinner is served!

Kielbasa & Pineapple Kabobs

1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup apple juice
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1/2 Tbsp onion powder
2 tsp grated orange zest
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 red bell pepper, cut in chunks
1 kielbasa or polish sausage, sliced
1 fresh pineapple, cut in chunks

Preheat broiler in oven.

Combine brown sugar, apple juice, cider vinegar, garlic & onion powders, orange zest & corn starch into a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally.  Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until thick.

Meanwhile, thread bell pepper, sausage and pineapple onto skewers.  Place kabobs on foil-lined baking sheet.  Place baking sheet about 6 inches from broiler elements; broil for about 5 minutes.  Remove from oven; brush kabobs with sauce.  Turn kabobs over & brush with sauce again.  Place baking sheet back into oven and broil another 5 minutes.
