Best Ever Sausage with Peppers, Onions, and Beer! Recipe ...
This is an excellent recipe I came up with one day. Italian sausage is simmered in beer with bell peppers and red onions.
I must admit that I am not a huge fan of sausage and peppers to begin with-but this recipe has changed my mind for good. Absolutely delicious. I felt like I was eating the prize winning sausage and pepper on a roll at the state fair. It's that good. Only changes were I only had one onion, used parsley instead of cilantro, and more green pepper than red...I used two thirds sweet and one third hot for the sausage. I did add a bit more paste than what called for as well. My husband moaned in satisfaction with every bite-I'm not kidding! I would suggest using a better grade of sausage-it tends to omit less fat!
This recipe was extremely tasty! I'm not a beer drinker and I don't like peppers and onions! But the flavor was excellent. I cut up hot and mild sausage and cooked as I always do (in the oven @ 325 in a brown and serve bag for about 40 minutes) then I cut up the onions, peppers, garlic, (used Emeril's hot sauce and Labatt's Blue) and other ingredients and placed in a 4 qt. Nesco roasting oven. I mixed in the sausage and let simmer for 1 hour on low. (Melt in your mouth tender) Served on a crusty roll with provolone broiled on top in the oven. Yummy! Received "this is very good" reviews!
I made this exactly as instructed except I substituted basil for the cilantro and used only 2 red bell peppers, no green peppers, and one red onion. Also, I used 3 lb hot Italian sausage and no hot sauce. We used Shiner Bock beer. The sauce was thin, bitter, and far, far too "bell pepper-y" in flavor. We fished out the sausages and will use them in sandwiches, with spaghetti sauce, kind of like a meatball sub. But my husband complains about the waste of two beers and I'm sad I wasted the peppers and onion. Sorry, I know I'm swimming upstream on this one!
I cut the recipe in 1/2 for my husband & I and ended up using a Michelob light ultra (which is a low carb beer), that was left over from a summer bash (we didn't care for the taste & what a better way to use it). I did use the whole 6 oz. of paste, & also used our butchers "medium" Italian sausage (which has a bit of kick to it) . I didn't cut the sausage up & served it in a sausage bun smothered with the sauce....YUUMMMYYYY!!!! My taste buds were yelpin! My picky husband LOVED it! Thanks very much Robert!
Fantastic meal. I used stout for the beer, and left out the cilantro. I ran out of tomato paste so I took a 28oz can of whole tomatoes, blitzed them in the blender until smooth, and simmered them down on the stovetop while I cooked. And I ended up using the whole lot of tomato sauce. I also added a tiny bit of sugar to balance the bitterness of the beer, and used dried oregano and basil. Served it over a bit of jasmine rice. This recipe will definitely be going into regular rotation at my house!
This was a first for me. I have NEVER used beer with my sausage and peppers before. And look what I've been missing all this time! I used 2lbs. spicy Italian sausage, so I left out the hot sauce. I only had 2 each red and green bell peppers, so that's what went in the skillet, along with the 2 onions, 4 cloves of garlic, 1-1/2 cans of beer (I was thirsty), the tomato paste, 2 Tbsp. each of fresh chopped oregano and basil, and a sprinkle of dried parsley. Wouldn't have added cilantro even if I'd have had it. We ate these on Italian bread subs, and they were Oh-so-yummy! Even better for lunch the next day. Thanks, Robert... this recipe is now in my "Tried and True" file.
I don't add the Hot Sauce, I use really hot Basque Chorizo and that has a way of spreading the flavor throughout the mixture! We love this!! I make it several times a year!!
I made this dish on new years for a bunch of friends and it was the hit of the party. I used Harpoon IPA for the beer, and it was fantastic. Any IPA (India Pale Ale) will do the trick. The only problem i had with this recipe was that the sauce was too thin for me. This is more than likley due to me adding too much beer, so i give this recipe 5 stars.
