    A simple and cheap to make sausage stew with a slight twist. Easy to make this one pot meal - filling and tasty - if you prefer more spice just double the cumin, coriander, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, tomato puree and garlic.

    Cook's note

    If you do not like pork this dish also works very well with turkey or chicken sausages. Vegetarian? Try it with Quorn sausages and replace chicken stock with vegetable stock. You can also add dumplings to this stew - just add them half an hour before cooking ends (no recipe for dumplings but lots of great ones on this site).

    Used different ingredients. I did this with chicken breast cut in to chunks instead of sausage and my girlfriend loved it.  -  06 Sep 2010


    Nice, easy and tasty but I think there's something missing although I'm not sure what. Maybe more and different veggies and perhaps a bit of bacon. One to look at again and tweak as indicated in the recipe.  -  10 Aug 2011
