Sausages are a great family meal – economic, quick and easy – we eat them regularly and for me it is all about what you serve with them that makes the difference. Here I have made a quick fresh
apple and onion relish – also great with pork chops.
Sausages with Fresh Apple & Onion Relish
4-6 pork sausages, about 500g
2 onions, thinly sliced
2 apples, cored and thinly sliced
½ tsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1 Heat a large frying pan with lid over a medium heat. Add a
little oil and swirl to coat base of pan. Add sausages and cook for 3-4 minutes each side. Cover and cook, turning occasionally, for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through. Remove sausages from pan, set aside and keep warm.
2 Add onions to pan cover and cook, stirring occasionally, over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until onion is soft and
translucent. Add apples and fennel seeds and cook, stirring
occasionally, for 8-10 minutes or until apples are tender and start to brown. Stir in vinegar and season with a good grind of salt and black pepper. Push apple mixture to side of pan. Return sausages to pan, cover and cook for 4-5 minutes to heat through.
Serving suggestion: Serve with smashed or mashed potatoes and green vegetable of your choice or a salad of mixed leaves.
