Porter Beer Glazed Grilled Sausages with Onion Jam

Serves 4

1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 large red onion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup dried cherries
5 Tablespoons cider vinegar, divided
2 Tablespoons + 3/4 cup Porter Beer, divided
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 Tablespoon molasses
1/4 cup apricot preserves
12 ounces kielbasa sausage, cut into 8 pieces
8 slices pumpernickel bread OR 4 kaiser rolls, toasted or lightly grilled

Make onion jam by warming vegetable oil in medium, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in onion slices. Sauté for about 4 minutes, until wilted. Stir in dried cherries, 2 tablespoons cider vinegar, Porter Beer and brown sugar; reduce heat to low. Cover and cook over low heat until onions are very tender, about 10 minutes. Deglaze pan with additional 1/4 cup Porter Beer. Stir in salt and pepper. Set aside until ready to serve.

To make glaze, whisk together in small saucepan 1/2 cup Porter Beer, molasses, apricot preserves and 3 tablespoons cider vinegar. Bring to a simmer over low heat; let bubble for 5 minutes.

Prepare grill or preheat broiler. Arrange kielbasa on grill or under broiler; let it cook on both sides, turning, until a bit charred, about 2 minutes per side. Brush with glaze. Move kielbasa to side, where the fire or heat is not so hot. Let sausage cook until glaze caramelizes, about 1 - 2 minutes, then turn sausage again and glaze other side. Repeat glazing two or three times, until sausage is nicely coated and charred.
Serve immediately, on bread or rolls, with onion jam.
