This is an older recipe from 2012 that I’m bringing back to new life… because it’s JUST THAT GOOD! Not only this stew amazingly delicious and packed with flavor, it’s on the table in just 30 minutes. YES!
By using hot pork sausage, not a lot of seasonings are needed for this stew… just your desired amount of salt and pepper. Easy peasy!
I’ve enjoyed this so very much over the years and just had to bring it back with new photos. Below is my original photo from 2012.
By the time the new year rolls around, I’m so tired from all of the festivities that the last thing I want to do is spend a load of time in the kitchen on New Year’s Day. Serve this with cornbread and you’re done in a flash. And everything’s prepared in ONE POT for easy cleanup!
Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! 🙂
