Cleveland Guardians

Cleveland is the proud home of the Polish Boy, a kielbasa sausage nestled in a bun and topped with slaw, BBQ sauce and fries. We call our version the ’Cued Kielbasa Sandwich. It’s a magnificent meal in a bun, and it’s always ready for game day.

Let's get grilling

1 To make the coleslaw, place the cabbage, onions and jalapeño in a bowl. In a smaller bowl, mix the apple cider vinegar, mustard, mayonnaise and sugar together. Toss with the cabbage mixture until evenly coated. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside.
2 Make the french fries according to package directions. If they are not seasoned well enough, add a little bit of salt when they come out of the oven.
3 Using Kingsford® Original Charcoal, build a charcoal fire for direct grilling and preheat to 400°F.
4 Butterfly kielbasa by slicing them lengthwise without cutting all the way through. Open gently so they lay flat on the grill.
5 Cook for about 5 minutes on each side, until charred in spots and hot throughout. For your safety, please reference the USDA safe cooking temperatures.
6 To build the sandwiches, place a kielbasa inside each roll, top with plenty of coleslaw and french fries, and drizzle with barbecue sauce. Serve immediately.

Note: If you’d prefer to make your own fries, peel 1½ pounds potatoes and cut into sticks. Soak in water for 1–2 hours; then rinse and dry well. Heat three inches of vegetable oil in a pot. Fry twice; the first time for about 3–5 minutes until softened but still pale (drain and dry), and the second time for 3–5 minutes, until golden brown. Season to taste with salt.
