Martha Stewart's One-Pot Beer-Braised Sausages with Warm Potato Salad


You can't go wrong with meat and potatoes, especially if it's Martha Stewart's version of meat and potatoes like this recipe for Martha Stewart's Beer-Braised Sausages with Warm Potato Salad. You don't have to be Martha to make this delicious meal. Simply follow the easy step-by-step instructions in the video above. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet Italian pork sausages
  • 1 medium yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 12 ounces pale ale beer
  • 1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes, halved
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Directions:
  1. In a large Dutch oven or heavy pot, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add sausages and cook until brown on all sides, about 8 minutes. Add onion and cook until softened, about 7 minutes. Add beer, potatoes, and 2 cups water; season with salt and pepper and press to submerge potatoes in cooking liquid. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Transfer sausages to a serving platter and keep warm. In a large bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon oil, vinegar, and parsley. With a slotted spoon, transfer potato mixture to dressing (reserve cooking liquid) and toss to combine.
  3. Return pot to high heat; boil cooking liquid until reduced to 1 cup, about 12 minutes. Return sausages to pot and cook until heated through, 2 minutes. Place sausages and dressed potatoes on serving platter; drizzle half the sauce over top. Serve sausages and potatoes with remaining sauce alongside.
