Easy Sausage, Peppers and Onions

Sauteed sausage, multicolored peppers and onions in a sandwich roll

It’s time to add another weeknight meal to your rotation: easy sausage, peppers and onions! Not only is this dish quick and simple to make, but there is also a lot of flexibility with the ingredients. Requiring only 30 minutes to make (possibly even less), this dish is perfect for those busy work/school weeknights.

Ingredients

As mentioned above, there can be some flexibility with the ingredients for this recipe. Here’s what I mean and what you’ll need:

  • Sausages – you can use any kind that you like (Ex: Italian sausages, chorizo, bratwurst, kielbasa, etc)
  • Onions
  • Peppers – any colors that you like. I prefer to get a mix of the different colors
  • Open Fire BPS Rub – if you’re out of this rub and really want to make this dish, using salt and pepper will be ok
  • White wine
  • Fire roasted dice tomatoes
  • Worcestershire sauce

That’s all that you’ll need to make this dish.

Start cooking

The first thing you’re going to want to do is to slice the peppers and onions into strips and start cooking them in a pot. Season them with Open Fire BPS Rub and allow them to cook over medium heat for about 8-10 minutes. While the vegetables are cooking, brown the sausages in another pan.

When browning the sausages, you’re really just looking to give them some color – you are not fully cooking them. This will take about 3-4 minutes per side. Once done, remove the sausages and slice them into bite sized pieces. Then, add the sliced pieces back to the pan and continue brown. Once they are browned to your liking, add them to the peppers and onions. Add a splash of wine to the pan that you browned the sausages in and deglaze, making sure to scrape up all of the bits at the bottom of the pan (these bits are FLAVOR). Add the scraped up bits and wine to the pot with the sausage, peppers and onions.

Put it all together

We are now at the final stretch of this cook. Add the remaining wine, diced tomatoes, and Worcestershire sauce. Cover the pot with everything in it and cook for another 8-10 minutes.

Once the 8-10 minutes is up, you’re ready to eat! Quick and easy – perfect for those busy weeknights!

Enjoy it your way

This is a really easy dish that can be enjoyed in many different ways. My preference: in a sandwich or sub roll. There’s just something about a sausage, pepper and onions sandwich that really speaks to me. If you’re avoiding carbs, you can eat it as is! I cannot recommend this meal enough. With the flexibility, easiness to make it, and the lack of time it takes to cook, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be making this. My wife and kids both love it, making this a great weeknight meal for the entire family.

Once done, remove the sausages from the heat and slice into bite sized pieces. Add the pieces back to the pan and continue to brown to your liking.

  • Add the diced tomatoes, white wine (remaining 1/2 cup), and Worcestershire sauce to the sausages, peppers and onions. Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes.
  • Serve immediately. Eat in a sandwich, wrap, as is, or however you would like. Enjoy!
