It’s that time of year when it’s not really summer anymore, but I’m still loathe to admit it’s really fall. The trees still have their (green) leaves. I can get away with short sleeves most days. But there’s definitely a bit of chill in air, and the beach doesn’t have much appeal. This time of year I tend to stick to simple things in the kitchen. Have a few last chances to just eat tomatoes out of my hand. Spend more time outside before it gets too cold. So here’s a quick recipe equally at home in the summer or fall. Something tasty to eat before you get back to denying that it really is fall.
This is really more a method than a recipe. You can adjust any or all of the ingredients to your taste
a few Italian sausages (I prefer spicy ones)
a few bell peppers
a few glugs (maybe half a bottle) of beer
maybe some water
Heat a skillet over medium-high, add sausages and cook until brown on each side, about 2 minutes. Remove sausages and set aside.
Add the onions and peppers to the pan. Cook 5 minutes, covered, stirring occasionally, until just starting to brown. Put the sausages back in and pour in the beer, cover and cook another 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sausages are cooked through and the liquid is absorbed. You may need to add some water if it starts get dry before the sausages are done.
