Pineapple sausage.  I'd never seen it before but when I had some in the freezer (given to us by a friend) I had to use it.  It was fully cooked pork sausage with small bits of pineapple through out.  I initially planed to use it for sausage and beans (kind of like beans and wienies) but as I started making it something different and incredibly delicious developed.  I turned my sausage and beans into sweet and sour.  It was full of flavor and had a wonderful fresh and bright flavor that both my husband and I enjoyed.

Sausage and Bean Sweet and Sour


Ingredients:

4 pineapple sausages (or any fully cooked pork sausage), sliced
1 Tbsp oil
1 Tbsp garlic, minced
1 Tbsp ginger, minced
3 Thai chilies, minced
1 large onion, chopped
1 large bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped (with or without seeds to your liking)
2 cups fresh pineapple, chopped
2 cups red beans (or one can)
1/4 cup brown sugar
juice of 2-3 limes
salt to taste

In a stock pot, over medium high heat, saute the sausage until browned.  Add a little oil to the pan if needed then add garlic, ginger, and chilies.

Saute until just fragrant then add the onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, and pineapple (season liberally with salt).  Cook until softened.

Add the beans, brown sugar, and lime juice.  Stir thoroughly and turn heat to low.  Allow mixture to cook on low, uncovered, for about 15 minutes then taste for seasoning and serve.

Serve over rice garnished with green onions or cilantro (or both).  Makes about 6 servings.

Enjoy.

  1. That looks yummy. I love using keilbasa sausage in recipes. It's very under used imo. Thanks for sharing on #yuckstopshere link up.

  10. It was definitely new to me too Michelle. You could use any sausage in this dish though from kielbasa to andouille.
