Welcome to VisiHow, everybody! Today, I am going to show you how to make a very simple and inexpensive dish that can feed up to eight people using only six sausages. It's a cayenne sausage, beans, and rice dish.
The ingredients are 1 package of 6 medium or hot sausages, 1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes, 1 19 oz can of red or white kidney beans, 3/4 cups of sliced mushrooms, 1/2 to 3/4 cups of chopped red peppers, 1 large diced white onion, 2-3 cloves of chopped garlic, liquid broth (bought or homemade), 1-3 teaspoons of ground roasted coriander, 1-2 teaspoons of oregano.
In this case, they are in natural casings that break down easily. If we have artificial casings on our sausages, we are going to need to remove the casings first and then break down our sausages. We can also get sausage meat without the casings, but some butchers don't do that. Sometimes, it may cost us a little more. It just depends on the butcher's set-up. It is easier to grab a pack of six sausages and break them up whenever we need them. We are going to break them up.
We can use whatever sausages we prefer, including turkey, beef-and-pork mixture, etc
The sausages in this tutorial are medium Italian sausages, which are a beef-and-pork mixture. We do not recommend using pure pork sausages as breakfast sausages just because they are rather fat, and we'll not get as much flavor out of them. They do not absorb spices as well as large Italian-style sausages. We are breaking down the sausages.
We can use plain coriander, but roasted ground coriander is preferred for extra boldness to the flavor. It's a lovely taste to have in our food. We are going to add it to taste. We may want to add more or less than shown in the video.
They need to simmer and not boil as they are being cooked. Chopped food allows to mingle different ingredients when doled out. However, the size of ingredients is going to be subject on how we prefer them in our food.
We are going to stir the dish, as we want to fry the rice
What we want here is we want flavors to infuse in the rice as well. We are going to stir and fry the rice until it starts to turn golden brown. We'll notice that juices from the meat and vegetables will start to coat the rice. Jasmine rice is used in this video. Basmati rice can be used too. We have to avoid using minute (instant) rice because it gets mushy. Hard-grain rice works very well.
