Beer-Glazed Sausage and Apples

Submitted by: MIKSCHER

Number of Servings: 4


    1 12-oz bottle beer
    1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
    1 14-16 oz package light smoked sausage, such as kielbasa, cut into 3-inch pieces
    1/2 lb green beans
    2 Tbsp butter
    2 medium cooking apples, cored and thinly sliced
    2 Tbsp packed brown sugar
    1 Tbsp cider vinegar
    1 tsp finely shredded orange peel
    8 small sage leaves


1. In a large saucepan combine 1/2 of the beer and the crushed red pepper; bring to boiling. Add the sausage and green beans. Return to a simmer; cook, covered, 5 to 8 minutes or until beans are tender. Drain. Set aside.
2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet melt 1 Tbsp butter; add apples. Cook, turning occasionally, until apples are just tender. Tranfer to a planter.
3. Add sausage to skillet. Cook, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides. Add to platter; cover. Drain fat from skillet.
4. Carefully add remaining beer to skillet (mixture may foam); stir to scrape up browned bits. Add remaining 1 Tbsp butter, brown sugar, cider vinegar, and orange peel. Bring to boiling; reduce heat and boil gently, uncovered, 5 to 6 minutes or until slightly thickened. Return sausage and green beans to skillet to coast in glaze. Heat through. Fold in apples. Return to serving platter. Sprinkle with sage.
