It exists! By some miracle, there actually exists a brand of sausage with exactly ZERO sugar, and they are sooo good. So far I have only found Botto’s Hot Italian Sausage at BJ’s in a 5-pound package (4 packs of 5 links each), but if you find them elsewhere please let me know!
This is probably the fastest I have ever prepared enough food for dinner and two work lunches. Super easy and 0 carbs, this “stir-fry” goes great with Mushy Beans.
1 pack of sausages (5 links)
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 head garlic, peeled
1-2 bell or poblano peppers, julienned (which I actually didn’t have so I used canned, diced chili peppers which works fine but is just not as good)
1 tbsp. olive oil
Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Make a few very shallow diagonal cuts in each sausage link and place them in the pan. Turn sausages occasionally, allowing each side to brown to preferred color, for about 10 minutes or until the sausages are cooked through. Place the sausages on a clean plate to set and cool.
In the same pan, combine the red onion, garlic cloves, and peppers with a touch more olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste (and paprika if you like it). Stir periodically until vegetables begin to brown and soften (about 10 minutes on medium heat).
Add chili oil to mayonnaise for a creamy, spicy dip!
