Sausage and Peppers Skillet
This sausage and peppers skillet is easy to make and perfect for a busy weeknight dinner. It's ready in about 30 minutes!
- 1 pound smoked sausage sliced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion sliced
- 3 bell peppers sliced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- Salt & pepper to taste
Prep your ingredients. I like to serve this recipe with egg noodles, but you can serve it with whatever you decide. If doing egg noodles/pasta, I suggest starting to boil the water as you begin cooking the sausages.
Add the olive oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the sausage pieces until they're browned/crispy on all sides (about 8-10 minutes), then remove them from the pan and set aside.
Add the onion to the skillet and sauté it for 2-3 minutes (add more oil to the pan if it seems too dry), and then add in the peppers and continue cooking until they're tender-crisp. I like to get a little char on mine, so I cook them for a bit longer and ensure the pan stays HOT.
When everything is looking to be about done, stir in the garlic and cook for about a minute or so.
Add the sausages back and give it a good stir. Serve over drained egg noodles or whatever you're serving it with. Season with salt & pepper as needed.
- I used a Ukrainian smoked sausage coil for this recipe. Any smoked sausage will work, or something like kielbasa would also work. I buy the kind that's already fully cooked. If you use a sausage that's raw, you will have to cook it for longer and probably drain some of the fat depending on what kind of sausage you buy.
- This is the Lodge cast iron pan I used for this recipe. You don't need to use a cast iron pan, but I do find it makes getting a nice sear a bit easier.
