Slow Cooker Sausage, Tomato and Rosemary Casserole


Operation Dry Rot is finally progressing with construction rather than destruction now the order of the day.  However, I am still cooking without my stove, so Slow Cooker recipes are featuring heavily.  I like them because you can cook everything in one pot and there is less fussing around with the single electric ring and the microwave.

This is a simple casserole using everyday ingredients which make it tasty, thrifty and convenient.

Sausage, Tomato and Rosemary Slow Cooker Casserole
Serves 3-4
 6 pork sausages
1 seasonal root vegetable pack containing 3 carrots, 1 parsnip, 1 small turnip (swede), 1 onion.
2 large potatoes
1 400g can chopped tinned tomatoes
2 sprigs of rosemary
1 stock cube (I used beef)
1 tbsp vegetable oil 
salt and freshly ground pepper

1. Heat the oil in a pan and brown the sausages all over (I have a Sear and Stew Slow Cooker so brown mine in the cooking pot on the hob), slice the onion and add to the pan, turn down the heat and cook slowly for about 10 minutes.

2. While the sausage and onion are sauteing in the pan, peel the other vegetables and chop into small even sized pieces. You can cut the potatoes slightly larger as they will soften more quickly than the carrot and swede.




3.  Put all the other ingredients in the slow cooking pot and mix the stock cube with 200ml of boiling water, add this to the pot.
4. Cook for 6-8 hours on Low until all the vegetables are tender.  You can serve it with a green vegetable, like broccoli, or simply serve it as it is, which is what we did.  It's particularly good with some crusty bread to mop up the juices.  

Tip: If you want to make this stretch to feed more, take the sausages out and cut them into pieces.  There are loads of vegetables so you could probably make this dish feed six.



The theme for Cooking with Herbs this month is 'Rosemary' my favourite herb, which is included in this dish.  Cooking with Herbs is run by Karen at Lavender and Lovage

As this recipe used inexpensive recipes, I will be adding it to Credit Crunch Munch which is run jointly by Camilla at Fab Food 4 All and Helen at Fuss Free Flavours
Bloggers Around the World has landed in GB and this sort of sausages are very much a British tradition, so I'm sharing this recipe at Chris's site Cooking Around the World.

Cooking everything in one pot is always a winner. Then using a lovely variety of vegetables and herbs as well, that sounds very good to me. A satisfying dish. Thank you for travelling with us.

Thanks Dom. A wee bit of Photoshop magic :-)

Thanks Sylvia, I can't bear to cook overnight in the slow cooker because of the lovely aromas, they make me too hungry! It's fine during the day though.

I hope you have a go Bintu, it would work just as well in the oven if you don't have a slow cooker. The key is to brown the sausages first, then just throw in everything else.

Yummy, bet sausages are great in a slow cooker, I've yet to try. But I do quite often make a slow cooked sausage hotpot in the oven. Shall be bookmarking.
