I found this yummy recipe on Allrecipes and have been making it for about two years. Italian sausage is simmered in beer with bell peppers and red onions.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium high heat. Cook sausage until browned on all sides. Remove sausage from pan, and set aside.
  2. Pour in 1 can of beer to deglaze the pan, scraping up any blackened bits from the bottom. Place the red peppers, green peppers, onions and garlic in the pan. Stir in the remaining beer and the tomato paste. Season with oregano, cilantro, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until onions and peppers are tender.
  3. Slice the sausage into bite size pieces and add to the skillet. Cover and simmer until sausage is cooked through.

Hubby loved this. I did change the recipe a bit. I didn't add the tomato paste or the rest of the seasonings. The taste was awesome with the beer, peppers, onions and garlic. Hubby said I can make this again :)

Was really yummy!! I omited the cilantro and added a little brown sugar to cut the acidity of the tomato paste. I put it all on top of jalapeno garlic bread. Not for weight watchers!

Made this for Memorial Day weekend for some friends - love cilantro but not in this dish. Will leave cilantro out next time and maybe add more traditional italian spices.
