Asian Sausage

8:12:00 PM

This recipe may sound like an odd juxtaposition. I have to admit that it is a recipe of desperation. I was looking for a very quick recipe to cook on weeknights. We were shopping Costco one weekend, and if you have ever been to Costco on a weekend, that means....SAMPLES!

We tried a sample where a little old lady was sauteing some sausage in a soy based sauce: Mr. Yoshida's. My husband loved it and we bought this very large bottle.

That little sample was the basis of this recipe. It is super simple. Basically, you take a link of precooked sausage (such as keilbasa). You cut up your vegetable of choice (usually carrots or broccoli in my house). Meanwhile, preheat a non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Spray some cooking spray in the pan. Saute the meat and vegetable until lightly browned.

If you are cooking for a picky kid--you know, one like my four-year-old who doesn't believe in sauce if it isn't ketchup--take their portion out of the pan now. Then pour about 1/2 cup of the sauce and a little water into the pan and mix it with the remaining sausage and vegetable mixture. Reduce. Add red pepper flakes to taste. Serve over noodles or rice.

This is a quick, easy and cheap meal we all love! Hope you do too!
