  • 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.
