Choose fully cooked sausages for this dish--pork, such as smoked bratwurst or mild poultry such as chicken apple, but any flavor or mixture will work.
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 3 onions, peeled and slivered lengthwise (1 1/2 pound total)
- 1 cup stout beer (such as Guinness) or 1 cup dark beer (such as Guinness)
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leave
- salt and pepper
- 8 sausages (1 1/2 to 2 pound total)
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
- Pour oil into a 10- to 12-inch ovenproof frying pan over high heat; when hot, add onions and stir often until slightly limp and beginning to brown, about 4 minutes.
- Stir in beer and thyme; cook until liquid is reduced by about half, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Stir in salt and pepper to taste.
- Pick sausages all over with the tip of a sharp knife and arrange in a single layer on onions mixture.
- Bake in a 375°F regular or convection oven until sausages are heated through, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
I made this exactly as written and used Guinness. We liked how it added flavour to the pork sausages, but for us the onions were just too overpowering. I'm not sure if it was the variety of onions I used, ordinary brown onions, maybe leeks would be better? And if I made again I would add some garlic I think.
I love bratwurst or any sausage for that matter and this recipe was great. It was easy to make and the flavor of the Guinness was interesting. I did have to got to a couple of stores to find a single bottle. I will definately make this again!
