Beer Braised Sausage On Sweet & Spicy Warm Slaw

We’re a fan of beer braised sausage and this recipe is quite amazing!  Guiness beer. Sausage. Peppers. Those are just a few of the ingredients that make this dish a stand out!  That Guiness beer also makes it just perfect to serve as a St. Patrick’s Day meal!

For this recipe you won’t need your grill, so if it is stored for the winter .. not a problem.  This sausage is braised and slow cooked in beer and served over a slaw.  

No, not cole slaw – that would be for summer.  We are talking about a warm slaw with a kick. It’s sweet and spicy to keep you warm this winter.  The recipe is easy to adjust the spice level just in case you are not a fan of spicy.

Just look at all this color !  Fresh, crunchy, flavorful.  It won’t be long before this is a new favorite in your household.
