Sausage Skillet Dinner Recipe
|Prep time||2 minutes|
This sausage skillet dinner recipe offers either a savory or sweet twist by adding either onion or apple. While the meat cooks, sauté your vegetable side dish, and in only 15 minutes dinner will be ready to serve.
|1 1⁄2||lb||rope or link sausage|
|1||T||olive oil (light) + 1 tsp. for the veggies|
|1||onion or apple - medium|
|1⁄2||t||Adobo* (or salt) - save 1/4 teaspoon for veggies|
|2||carrots - large|
|1||c||asparagus, frozen (or other quick-cooking veggies like green beans, broccoli or mixed veggies)|
- If using rope sausage, first cut into 2- or 3-inch pieces. Place sausage, water and oil into large skillet over high heat. Bring to a boil and then cover, lower heat and cook for 15 min., setting the timer for about 8 minutes (for next step).
- Meanwhile, slice the carrots thinly and cut the asparagus ino 2-inch pieces. When there are 5-7 minutes remaining on the sausage cook time, remove the lid from the sausage, add the sliced onion or apple, (or both if you like the flavors to mingle), sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of Adobo, and sauté for remaining time until the sausage is golden and the onions and/or apples are tender.
- While the sausage and apples and/or onions finish cooking, it’s time to cook the other veggies: using another burner on the stove, turn the heat on high, and place a large skillet on that burner. Pour in 1 teaspoon oil, add the carrots, sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon Adobo and sauté for 3 minutes.
- Add the asparagus and sauté for 2-4 more minutes, until carrots and asparagus are tender. About this time, the sausage will be done, onions (and/or apples) will be golden. Both dishes are now ready to serve!
