Hairy Dieters Sausage with Rich Onion Gravy
Happy New Year, I hope it's a happy and healthy one for everyone. Here's a recipe that needs no introduction, the ultimate in comfort food, sausages and mash. Perfect winter fuel. This version is from the Hairy Dieters book, "Eat for Life". Like most people I need to cut back a bit in January, so both the Hairy Dieters books will be well used in the forthcoming months.
½ tsp sunflower oil
8 lean pork sausages
1½ medium onions, thinly sliced
300ml of beef stock
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 tsp cornflour
1 tbsp cold water
flaked sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
Brush a non stick frying pan with the sunflower oil and fry the sausages over a medium heat for 5 minutes, turning occasionally until they are golden brown all over. Add the onion to the pan, turn down the heat slightly and fry for 8 -10 mins, or until the sausages are cooked and the onions are softened and golden brown, stirring regularly.
Put the stock into the pan, add the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce and bring to a simmer. Cook for 3 mins, stirring occasionally.
Mix the cornflour with the cold water until smooth. Stir this mixture into the pan with the sausages and return to a simmer, then cook for 1 -2 mins more until the sauce is thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve with accompaniment of your choice.
