How to Make Kielbasa Lazy Pierogi:
Note: I like my sauerkraut to have mild flavor. If you like your sauerkraut to be strong. You do not have to soak it in the brown sugar and water. You can skip that step. My family likes very mild sauerkraut. Just make sure. that you rinse and drain it well before you use it
Drain and rinse sour kraut well. Place sour kraut in a bowl with the waer and brown sugar. Set aside. This will take away the bitterness.
Cook chopped onion until golden in color. Set aside.

Boil kielbasa until heated through. About 5-10 minutes after water boils.
Remove kielbasa to platter. Slice kielbasa, and cut each slice slices in half.
