Slow Cooker BBQ Kielbasa and Shrimp

It really doesn’t get any easier than this Slow Cooker BBQ Kielbasa & Shrimp recipe. “Chop and drop” is all you need to do (with a little bit of mixing). This was one of those recipes I thought I’d need to trial and error several times before getting the right combination of flavor. BUT somehow, I got it right the first time. I used a combination of sweet and spicy BBQ sauce along with garlic, lime, paprika and cayenne pepper. It was a blast of flavor that was hard to resist!

KIELBASA, SHRIMP & CARROTS

The main ingredients include chopped kielbasa, shrimp and baby carrots. To be honest, I didn’t originally intend on having carrots in the recipe. But I wanted a larger serving size, so I decided to add them for more “volume” if you will.  It was a good choice as it’s always nice to include some veggies in the mix. Another thing to note is that I used shrimp that was already precooked that you can find in the frozen section. Make sure to thaw them completely before cooking. Many of these shrimp packages come with the tail still on. For this dish, make sure to “de-tail” the shrimp before dropping in the crockpot.

I chose to cook on high (which takes about 2 hours) because I was in a bit of a time crunch. But if you’re in no hurry, feel free to set the crockpot to low and keep it cooking for up to 4 hours. There will be a lot of juices released as the kielbasa and shrimp cook. I opted to drain the pot every so often which is completely optional depending on your preference. This made for a great meal for my husband and I with plenty of leftovers. So, break out the crockpot and let’s get started on this Slow Cooker BBQ Kielbasa & Shrimp!
