Sausage and Tomato Stew

I do so love the pressure cooker for making meals. This Sausage and Tomato Stew is no exception to that. Very easy to prepare and it cooks very quickly.

Of course, there is more to it than just sausage and tomato. Potato is almost an essential for any stew so that is in there.

Then add in brussels sprouts and cauliflower for vegetable content plus paprika to add some spice to the finished dish.

The makings of a great stew with the benefit of being quick and easy to prepare.

Sausage and Tomato Stew

Serves 4

Cooking Time: 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 8 frozen Sausages (454g/1lb)
  • 1 can Plum Tomatoes
  • 550g can New Potatoes
  • 16-20 Brussels Sprouts
  • 8 large Cauliflower florets
  • Salt
  • Paprika

Method

  1. Empty the can of tomatoes into the pressure cooker. Rinse the empty can with a little water to get the last of the tomato out then add that in too. Empty can is now clean enough to go in the recycling bin as well.
  2. Add in the sausages, brussels sprouts, potatoes and cauliflower.
  3. Add paprika according to taste and the variety of paprika that you have.
  4. Add a little salt.
  5. Seal the pressure cooker then place over a high heat until the weight is dancing. Then reduce the heat and continue to cook for about 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the pressure cooker from the heat and allow to stand. This lets the stew cool for 5-10 minutes while the pressure inside the cooker is reducing. Makes it safe to open while still having hot food.
  7. Open the pressure cooker and divide the Sausage and Tomato Stew between four serving plates.
  8. Serve and Enjoy.

Notes

  1. I used frozen sausages for this version but fresh can be used too. Start by frying the sausages in a little oil inside the PC pot then continue adding the rest of the ingredients. Or make up a double batch the previous day to use in this meal.
  2. Now I was using shortcuts with this because the ingredients are all either canned or frozen. Fresh brussels are something that I like but preparing them for cooking does take some time. Cauliflower is easier but still does take some time. So I just buy them in bags for the freezer so they are both ready to cook when I want to eat them.
  3. Canned potatoes seem to be one of the few things that come in different sizes. The 550g size used here was perhaps slightly too small in a meal for 4 but the bulk of the cauliflower made up for that.
    If the cans available at the local supermarket are smaller then simply get two and use them.
