This weeks Recipe Shed theme set by Keith is SAUSAGES. I do love a good banger *ahem* and since I joined Slimming World back in May I haven’t had any because from a healthy eating plan point of view, they are just too high in syns (which won’t mean much to any non SW members but in a nutshell, they are baaaaad for me!). However, I do still make sausage inspired meals for Burton and his daddy and this one is very tasty. It’s another one of those store cupboard recipes that you can make from most things you may have in your kitchen.
**please note that if you are on a SW eating plan, then you could use quorn sausages in this stew which would make it very low in syns**
Saucy Sausage Stew
1 onion, finely chopped
2 leeks, finely chopped
4 rashers streaky smoked bacon, chopped
1 tbsp tomato purée
1 x 400g can chopped tomato
1 tbsp dark brown sugar
A beef oxo cube
2 thyme sprigs
A couple of dashes of Worcestershire sauce
1 x 400g baked beans
1 red pepper deseeded and chopped
1 x 450g pack of good quality herby sausages, already cooked & chopped into bite size chunks
Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion, leek and bacon, then cook for 5-10 mins until softened.
Turn up the heat and add the tomato purée. Cook for 2 mins, then add the chopped tomatoes, sugar, thyme, Worcestershire sauce and the water, then bring to the boil.
Cook, uncovered, over a low heat for 15 mins. Add the beans and peppers, then simmer for 15 mins more, topping up with a little boiling water if needed.
Meanwhile, heat oven to 190C/170C fan/ gas 5.
Add the sausages to the beans mixture and place into oven proof dish then either:
1). cover and place the pan in the oven. Cook for 30 mins more. Remove from the oven and serve with baked potatoes.
2). top stew with sliced boiled potatoes or mash and add some grated cheese and cook for 30 minutes
Can be made up to 2 days in advance and reheated in a low oven or on the hob.
Could also be made in a slow cooker
