Beer Sausage and Onions

I have been craving this meal for awhile. At one point we had all the ingredients on hand and I came up with the idea while at work. When I came home one or all of the ingredients were gone. I kept it in the back of my head for a future meal. Today was the day for it. Now depending on your feelings about beer this is or isn’t paleo. We drink beer.  Of course, beer is made from grains and sugar so inherently it is not paleo. But, I know plenty of folks who still drink while following paleo food choices. I think it is a delicious meal that is very simple.

Beer Sausage with Onions

1 onion sliced lengthwise

10 hot Italian sausages (or whatever kind you like)

3 minced cloves of garlic

1 tbsp butter

1 tsp thyme

1 large beer (I used Shiner because we are in Texas)

Open your beer and taste it to make sure it’s the right kind. In a deep pot melt butter and sauté onions, garlic, and thyme on medium high heat.

While these cook brown the sausages in another pan on medium high heat. You will not cook them through just put a little color on them.

I did this in two batches because all the sausages wouldn’t fit in the pan. When they are browned add them to the onions.  Taste your beer to make sure it’s not bad. Pour beer in pot till sausages are just covered. Taste your beer and make sure it’s still good. Then pour the rest over the sausages. Turn the heat down to low and let it simmer for 20 minutes.

Serve with your veggies of choice. Some mashed cauliflower would be good here, but this is what we had on hand, a veggie medley. The onions cooked down so much that they would melt in your mouth like butter. It was a really tasty meal.

This is not the prettiest picture, but it’s the best one I got. Guess I was hungry.
