Beer Braised Sausages

These delicious sausages are a quick and easy dish that will impress your guests.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 8 sweet Italian sausages
  • 12 ounces Leffe Blonde (plus 2 tablespoons for the mustard)
  • 2 sprigs fresh oregano (removed from stems and chopped)
  • 2 fresh sprigs of thyme or more oregano for plating

Steps

  1. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil to a skillet.
  2. Add garlic, brown.
  3. Add sausages, brown on all sides.
  4. Pour beer over sausages.
  5. Add 2 sprigs of fresh oregano to pan.
  6. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer for 8 minutes and let beer cook down.
  7. Plate with sprigs of fresh herbs.

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons mustard seeds
  • 4 tablespoons sherry vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons Leffe Blonde

Steps

  1. In a small bowl, combine mustard seeds, sherry vinegar, 2 tablespoons beer, and salt. (Add a bit more sherry vinegar to cover, if needed.)
  2. Set aside at room temperature, for 15 minutes
  3. Blend to desired smoothness in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. (At this point, you can strain out the seed husks, if you like smooth mustard, using a fine-meshed sieve and pressing the mustard though with a rubber spatula.)
