Sausages can be incredibly tasty! Here is a recipe for a wonderful stew with two kinds of sausages that warms the soul! Feel free to visit my blog for a complete list and amount of ingredients. Can easily be made vegetarian.
Sausages have been considered “cheap” food literally, but you can make an excellent stew out of the “cheap” sausage! The situation we are in with Corona means that you have to be content with what you have at home and not rush to the store to refill all the time. This recipe came from what I simply had in the fridge.
You can vary it based on what you have at home. Chili sausage with garlic is good to have in the casserole – then I happened to have barbecue sausage (Roslagsgrill (a locally produced sausage in Sweden)) ordinary barbecue sausage but slightly firmer and tastier than regular barbecue sausage. It is beneficial if one of the sausages is tastier than the other.
If you happen to have wine at home, you can use a splash – otherwise, an ordinary bouillon dissolved in water before you add it works just as well. Here I also use paprika puree that we always have at home – it is not a disaster if you do not have it at home – in that case, just take more tomato puree.
A significant advantage of this dish is that it can be ready at the same time as the potatoes. If you chop and prepare everything, put on the potatoes, the stew will be prepared simultaneously as the potatoes meaning that it takes just about 30 minutes.
