Steps

  1. 1
    We have to prepare the ingredients.
    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.

    Get them a bit sauteed.

  5. 5
    We start to break down sausages.
    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.

  6. 6
    The reason that we put the onions first is cooking them a little more to add more onion flavor to the sausages as they cook.

  7. 7
    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.

  8. 8
    We are going to add garlic.
    It's chopped up rather large because its flavor adds into different vegetables.

  10. 10
    We are going to start browning all of the dish.
    We want the meat brown not cooked or overcooked. Just brown a little like a hamburger or a ground turkey when we are making spaghetti sauce. That's the color that we are looking for in that dish.

  11. 11
    We are going to add oregano.
    If we don't have oregano, we can use basil as well.

  12. 12
    We add roasted ground coriander.
    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.

  13. 13
    We add cayenne pepper.
    Add to taste as well. We do not need a whole lot of it to get it spicy. It should be "warm" not "burn-your-mouth" spicy. That is why not much of the pepper is added in the video.

  15. 15
    We continue to brown the meat, vegetables, onions, and garlic.
    We can close the cap.

  16. 16
    Once the dish is brown, we are going to start adding vegetables.
    We add mushrooms and peppers.

    Give the dish a stir.

  18. 18
    We should not overcook the vegetables.
    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.

  19. 19
    Add a little salt.
    Now, that is also to taste. Some people tend not to eat much salt, but some prefer some more salt. We use our better judgment. We also have to remember that we have other spices in there as well.

  20. 20
    We are going to add rice.
    In this case, two cups of rice were used. If we want to feed more people, we can add more rice; and it will not hurt anything. We are just putting dry rice right on the meat and vegetables.

  21. 21
    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.

  22. 22
    Once our rice is little brown, we are going to start to add liquid.
    We can add beef, chicken, or vegetable broth. In this video, we add 900 milliliters of beef broth.

  23. 23
    Add a can of diced tomatoes.
    Dice tomatoes in broth are subject to quickness of absorption and evaporation; therefore, add more liquid if the consistency is thicker than it should be in the rice dish.

    When our rice is coated, we add drained canned beans.

  26. 26
    We add corn.
    In this video, it is frozen corn. We can use fresh or frozen corn.

    Once we put everything in, we cover the pan with the lid.

    We turn the oven down to medium-low or low.
    Let the dish simmer covered.

  30. 30
    Occasionally, we stir and check the dish to make sure that the liquid has not completely evaporated, and the consistency is still thick.

  31. 31
    When the dish gets to the stage where there's just a little liquid at the bottom and most of it has evaporated or absorbed, test the rice and see if the dish has almost been cooked.

  33. 33
    We take the food off the heat, and just let the dish stew.
    The food must be thick in consistency. That's the stage when the dish is ready.

    Once the food is ready, we simply throw some green onions or chives on top of it along with Parmesan cheese before serving the dish.
