Seasonal sausage casserole

This rib-sticking one-pot casserole is a great winter warmer on a cold evening. 

Preparation time: 20 minutes | Cooking time: 40 minutes | Serves 2-4 

Ingredients 

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 6-8 pork sausages (depending on how many people you're feeding or how hungry you are!)
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 red pepper, cut into large chunks
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • Glug of Worcestershire sauce
  • 200ml beef stock
  • I small can (210g) butter beans
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp gravy granules (optional)

Method

  1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil and add the sausages. Cook on a medium heat for about 5 minutes or until browned on the outside. Don't cook through. Remove the sausages from the pan and set aside.
  2. Reduce the heat and gently fry the onions and garlic in the remaining oil until soft. Add the chilli powder and paprika to the onion mixture and cook for another 2 minutes. If you like your food spicy, you could add a sprinkling of chilli flakes too.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes and tomato puree. Then pour in the beef stock and stir well. The mixture will look quite liquid - don't worry, it'll reduce. Add the red pepper chunks and Worcestershire sauce.
  4. Return the sausages to the pan, bring to the boil then cover. Reduce the heat and simmer for around 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Drain the butter beans and add to the pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for a remaining 10 minutes. If the sauce isn't as thick as you'd like, or you'd prefer a meatier taste, add 1 tbsp of gravy granules.
  6. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or crusty bread.
