Ingredients

  • 1 Pack Heck! Reduced Fat Pork Sausages
  • 2 tbsp SunFlower Oil
  • 6 Rashers Streaky Bacon (cut into 2.5cm)
  • 2 Onions, (thinly sliced)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (crushed)
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 Tin (400g) Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1 Tin (400g) Butter Beans
  • 300ml Chicken Stock
  • 2 tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Dark Brown Muscovado Sugar
  • 1 tsp Dried Mixed Herbs
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 4 Fresh Thyme Sprigs
  • 150ml Red Wine
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper

Method

  1. Heat 1tsp of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and fry the Reduced Fat Pork Sausages gently for 10 minutes, turning every now and then until nicely browned all over. Transfer to a large saucepan or a casserole dish and set aside.
  2. Fry the bacon in the frying pan until starting to brown and crisp and then add to the dish with the sausages.
  3. Add the onions to the frying pan and fry over a medium heat for 5 minutes until they start to soften, stirring often. You should have enough fat in the pan, but if not, add a little more oil. Add the garlic and cook for 2–3 minutes until the onions turn pale golden brown, stirring frequently. Sprinkle over the smoked paprika and cook together for a few seconds longer.
  4. Stir in the tomatoes, stock, tomato purée, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and herbs. Pour in the wine, or some water if you’re not using wine, and bring to a simmer.
  5. Tip the tomato mixture carefully into the pan with the sausages and bacon and return to a simmer. Reduce the heat, cover the pan loosely with a lid and leave to simmer very gently for 20 minutes, stirring from time to time.
  6. Stir the beans into the casserole, and continue to cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thick.
  7. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper and serve with rice or slices of rustic bread.

Enjoy!
