Pork with sausages in Black Beer
That is not a traditional Greek recipe but honestly anything with pork and sausages will always have a spice of Greece in it
When i was little one of the few things that i always ate was sausages. Fried, grilled anyway was great for me and to be honest i think all kids are the same. Sausages have a nice flavor and size that makes interesting for little kids. Very few of them will dislike them.
Add some beer on it and… you have an adult recipe!
In Greece we love making sausages and if you haven’t tried some local sausages from the country side then you don’t know what you are missing. Not because i am Greek, but there is no comparison with the british ones i ussually get over here.
The following recipe was made with sausages from Karditsa, a place in Northern Greece.
- 1 kilo of pork chopped in cubes. Preferably neck
- 350gr of sausages, ideally spiced
- 3 medium onions
- 1 stock cube (chicken)
- 2 bay leaves
- 500gr of black beer (depends on your taste)
- 50gr of balsamic
- Salt, Pepper
- Olive Oil
- Use a deep pan and put it in medium-high fire
- Chop the sausages in medium sizes and add them to the pan with a bit of olive oil . Cook them for 5 minutes until they are properly done on all sides
- Remove them and leave them aside
- In the same pan now add a bit more olive oil and then add the pork.
- Add salt and paper and cook it properly again.
- Cut the onions on 4 and remove all their leaves
- When the pork is ready then add the onions
- Pour now the balsamic and the black beer.
- Add the rosemary, stock cube as well as the bay leave. Put the lid on and slow cook it for about an hour.
- When its ready add a bit more oregano and serve it with rice or french fries.
