Here's a very easy sausage dinner that any man can make.
I eat a Paleo diet as much as I can. At 45, I feel healthier, stronger, and, most importantly, I've lost fat and gained muscle because of my diet. And this is an easy-to-do Paleo dinner that we've tested in our test kitchen many times to get it just right. It's a simple dish. We use a combination of sauteing and steaming to get sausages with a nice crisp brown exterior and a juicy interior. Chopped veggies, a light tomato sauce, caramelized onion, a bit of wine, and bourbon (no kidding) round out the taste.
Cut up an onion, green pepper, red pepper, and a bunch of mushrooms.
Cook the sausages in a pan. Scoop a few tablespoons of butter or ghee in a hot pan. Heat pan to the point where to start to see a little smoke developing. Saute and brown the sausages. Then, turn down the heat to medium, cover with a glass lid, and cook to the right temperature. I like to add a bit of water to steam-cook the meat.
In another pan, saute the veggies. In a pot, make a little red sauce. Get a can of organic peeled whole tomatoes. Blend them in the pot. Done.
Onto the sausages, pour a little of the red sauce and add the veggies. All the while, you've splashed a little wine here and there, and sipped the bourbon.
We tested this sausage and veggie dinner several times and paired it with many beers and wines. We recommend pairing this dish with a Shiraz red wine. One of my favorites is from Two Hands. It's a very dark red wine. I love the notes of spiced berries, cocoa blobs, squished dark plums and juice in a deep, hand-carved cedarwood bowl. Smell it? Bright acid. Fine tannins. The King's Guide gives this wine a 91.
Congratulations. You just made an awesome dinner, man.
