A simple sausage stew that is both delicious and easy to prepare. What could be better than that?
This recipe came to me from my friend Sandy over at The Frugal Flexitarian. It is a tasty combination of sausage, potatoes, and carrots in a tomato-based sauce seasoned with paprika.
Sandy, being from the UK, presents the recipe in metric measure. I adjusted to US measure as follows:
- 4 Sausages (I used beer brats.)
- 1 onion (peeled and diced)
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 med carrots (peeled and diced)
- 1 clove garlic (peeled and crushed)
- 3 med potatoes (peeled and diced)
- 1 – 14 oz can butter beans
- 1 cup diced tomatoes
- 1 tsp paprika (I used smoked.)
- 2-3 Tbsp tomato paste (thickens the sauce)
- 2 cups chicken stock
- Salt and pepper to taste
- For some added heat, I used a couple shakes of red pepper flakes.
Any type of sausage can be used, it would even be good with no meat and more veggies; but we like our meat. This is a flexible recipe. Try it with pork sausage, no sausage, root veggies, or sweet potatoes, it is sure to be a hit. This is a keeper in our home.

Pair this dish with a crisp, clean white wine such as Cuvee Joelle Sauvignon Blanc.
