Cozy Sausage Ale Stew

Think classic beef stew with a twist: beef is swapped for our Original Smokies, the golden gravy is lighter from the addition of chicken stock, and we add some unusual and flavourful veggies in this comforting dish.


1 tbsp olive oil

4 Schneiders® Original Smokies, sliced

2 small onions, sliced

1 small celery root, peeled and cut into chunks

⅓ cup all-purpose flour

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

¼ tsp ground caraway seeds

Pinch salt

1 cup ale or other dark beer

2 parsnips, peeled and cubed

225 g oyster mushrooms, torn into pieces

3 cups sodium-reduced chicken stock

1½ tbsp cider vinegar

½ bunch Swiss chard, roughly chopped

1 tbsp chopped parsley

Heat olive oil in large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook sausage until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add onions, cook until golden-brown and softened, about 5 minutes. Add celery root, flour, garlic, pepper, caraway and salt. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in ale, scraping up any brown bits. Cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes.

Add parsnips, oyster mushrooms, and the stock; bring to boil. Partially cover; reduce the heat to low. Gently simmer for 40 minutes.

Stir in vinegar, Swiss chard and parsley. Remove from heat and let stand until greens are tender and wilted, about 3 minutes.
