Thinly sliced smoked sausage is quickly sauteed and then simmered with colorful bell peppers, fragrant onions and a touch of ready-made sweet and sour sauce. Add a pinch of cayenne pepper and as much hot pepper sauce as your tongue can take.
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 1 1/2 pounds smoked sausage, sliced
- 1 green bell pepper, sliced into long strips
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced into long strips
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons sweet and sour sauce
- 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper
- 1 dash hot pepper sauce, or to taste
Place the sliced sausage in a large skillet over medium high heat. Saute for 5 to 10 minutes, flipping often, until well browned. Drain excess fat and set sausage aside.
In the same skillet over medium heat, combine the green bell pepper, red bell pepper, onion and butter or margarine and saute for 10 minutes, or until all vegetables are tender. Add the sausage and stir together well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Then add the sweet and sour sauce, cayenne pepper and hot pepper sauce. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, allowing all the flavors to blend.
