I threw this together today after church… and just HAD to come write out my recipe for future reference!!!
This is INCREDIBLE…
It only takes ONE PAN!!!
And in my world of no dishwasher…. this kind of cooking gets my attention.. and FAST!!!!
So without further ado…
One-Pan Sausage Skillet
6-8 servings; 10 minutes prep; 10 minutes cook
~ 1-2 sausage link (beef, turkey, whatever you would like)
~ red pepper
~ 1 c. thinly sliced cabbage
~ 2 pkg. Quinoa and brown rice bags (I buy mine at Sam’s Club… and the kids LOVE this stuff!)
~ 1/2 c. chicken broth
~ lime juice
~cilantro, to taste (I used most of one bunch)
~ sea salt
~ 1 Tbsp. olive oil
Ok! Now… the best part of this recipe (I think EVERYTHING I MAKE can be altered and still be delicious) is that if you don’t have peppers… don’t stress. If you only have 1/4 c. chicken broth (like I did today) use that and some water!
First: Put olive oil ( I used expeller-pressed coconut oil which doesn’t taste like coconut at all but also the chemical composition is not changed by the high heat) into a skillet and heat up on high heat. Add sausage and saute until crispy and brown around the edges.
Second: Take the sausage off the skillet and lay on a paper towel to drip dry and get any excess oil off.
Third: Add onions and cabbage to the liquid that remains in the skillet and saute until onions are brown.
Fourth: Add peppers, salt, and pepper half way through cooking the cabbage and onions.
Fifth: Add chicken broth and 2 bags of quinoa and brown rice bags.
Sixth: Turn to medium-high heat and cover for about 5 minutes so rice can finishing cooking. Stirring occasionally.
Seventh: Throughout this whole process I kept spritzing everything with lime juice to keep everything moist, my guess is I used about 3 Tbsp. lime juice…
Eighth: Put the sausage back in the pan with everything else.
Ninth: Add cilantro to skillet and just mix in after turning off the heat to the pan.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
This was 100% KID-APPROVED and super filling! It’s healthy… and easy… and was just made with what I had around the
