Sausage Stew

Standard

Ingredients

  • 4 Sausages, cut into 1 inch pieces (we used Costco’s Apple/Gouda Chicken Sausages)
  • 2 Large potatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 Medium onion, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 can of chicken broth/stock
  • 1 large can of diced tomatoes in their juices
  • 1/4 cup red lentils (optional, we had some…I threw them in to see what happened)
  • 1-2 Tbs. butter
  • 2 pressed cloves of garlic
  • A few sprinkles of red pepper flakes
  • A few sprinkles of salt & white pepper
  • 1 bay leaf (pulled out before serving)
  • 2 sprigs of fresh oregano (on the stem, pulled out before serving – use a tsp of dry otherwise)
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme (on the stem, pulled out before serving – use 1/2 tsp of dry otherwise)

Also, I would’ve loved to put some carrots or turnips in here, but alas, we had none.  I think the carrots in particular would enhance the flavor.

Directions

  1. Throw it all in the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

While I enjoyed this out of the pot, I couldn’t get enough of it on the second day when I took it for lunch. By the time I thought about taking a picture I was slurping down the last few drops of golden buttery broth.  I will try to remember next time.
