Beer-Glazed Sausage and Apples
Ingredients
  • 1 12  ounce bottle  Belgium-style wheat beer
  • 1/2  teaspoon  crushed red pepper
  • 1 14 - 16  ounce package  smoked sausage, such as kielbasa, cut in 3-inch pieces
  • 1/2  pound  fresh green beans
  • 2  tablespoons  butter
  • 2  medium  cooking apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2  tablespoons  packed brown sugar
  • 1  tablespoon  cider vinegar
  • 1  teaspoon  finely shredded orange peel
  • 8  small  sage leaves
Directions

1. In a large saucepan combine 1/2 of the beer and the crushed red pepper; bring to boiling. Add sausage and green beans. Return to a simmer, cover and cook 5 to 8 minutes or until beans are tender. Drain. Set aside.

2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet melt 1 tablespoon butter; add apples. Cook, turning occasionally, until apples are just tender. Transfer to a platter.

3. Add sausage to skillet. Cook, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides. Add to platter; cover. Drain fat from skillet.

4. Carefully add remaining beer to skillet (mixture may foam); stir to scrape up browned bits. Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter, brown sugar, cider vinegar, and orange peel. Bring to boiling; reduce heat and boil gently, uncovered, 5 to 6 minutes or until slightly thickened. Return sausage and green beans to skillet to coat in glaze. Fold in apples. Return to serving platter. Sprinkle with sage. Makes 4 servings.
