I got this recipe from Katie, who got it from Williams and Sonoma.... sooo good! Anything with beer in the title and you can sign my husband up too! I just decided to serve mine over penne pasta, and it was a GREAT decision! here's the low down! Ale-Braised Sausage and Peppers adapted from Williams-Sonoma
Ingredients: 2 Tbsp olive oil 2 lb. cooked sausages, such as kielbasa, sliced 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and sliced 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour, divided 1 1/2 c. ale (I used Sam Adam's Oktoberfest and it worked perfectly...i used this too) 1 1/2 c. low sodium chicken stock 3 Tbsp fresh thyme, chopped (right so i didn't have any fresh so i used ground... tasted great) Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste 1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
Directions: -In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. -Add the sausages and cook, stirring and turning often, until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. -Transfer to a plate. -Add the onion and bell pepper to the pot, reduce the heat to medium, and sauté until tender and golden, about 5 minutes. -Add 2 Tbsp flour and cook, stirring, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. -Whisk in the ale until the mixture is smooth and bubbly. -Add the thyme and broth, whisking to blend, and bring to a simmer. -Return the sausages to the pot. -Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the flavors are blended, about 15 minutes. -Uncover and simmer until the sauce is slightly reduced, about 5 minutes. -Season with salt and pepper. -Remove the sausage, peppers, and onions and place on a serving platter. -With the Dutch oven over medium high heat, whisk in 1 heaping Tbsp of flour, whisking constantly until thickened, about 1-2 minutes. -Pour thickened sauce over sausages and serve immediately with mashed potatoes. -Serves 4 to 6.
I'm southern, I live in the north (you'll never convince me MD is not the north) and I'm slightly sarcastic, sorry it just happens, like poop happens, my sarcasm happens too~
I LOVE my husband, my daughter, and my dogs, and I’m a Christian, though not always the best example. I try to do it all, but know i can't alone. I brighten my journey with a few bows, sparkles, monograms, and heels. This is how I brought my southern roots to the north!
