Sausages and Beans

Chilli sausages and beans

A warming midweek supper

Comfort food doesn’t get any better than sausages and beans, so this hearty supper from the British meat experts at the Ginger Pig (the A-list London butcher) is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Serve with a pile of mash and a glass of punchy red.

Preparation time:

10 minutes plus an overnight soak

Cooking time

1 hour and 15 minutes

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 400g butterbeans
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 12 pork sausages
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 red chillies, de-seeded and chopped
  • 1 tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsps tomato purée
  • 100ml red wine
  • 250ml beef or chicken stock, plus more if needed
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bunch of parsley, roughly chopped

Method

Step 1: Soak the beans overnight in cold water. Drain off the water, rinse the beans and put them in a large pan with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat and simmer for 40 minutes or until the beans are soft. Drain.

Step 2: Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large casserole pan over a medium/high heat and brown the sausages until they are a rich golden brown. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes, then add the garlic and chilli and cook for a further minute. Stir in the paprika, tomato purée, wine, stock, vinegar and seasoning. Mix well, then stir in the cooked beans.

Step 3: Cover and place in the oven for 45 minutes. Add extra stock if the pan gets dry. Stir in the parsley and serve.
