A spicy one-pot devilled sausage recipe.

Here’s how the sausage stir-fry is done,

First, the sausages are boiled until they are plump and ready to mix with the spicy sauce that includes onions and banana peppers.

The sauce brings all the flavors together and makes this somewhat bland meat taste good. slightly sweet but super spicy.

It’s made with red chili flakes, green chilies, and black pepper, tomato sauce, and soy sauce.

Meal ideas with spicy sausage fry.

  • Great on hot dogs, don’t add any mustard sauce, a little cheese, place them on a baking tray and broil for the cheese to melt.
  • You can also just stuff them, wrap them as they are to make a quick meal.
  • Simple Lunch-egg fried rice is all you need with a few spoons of this sausage fry.
  • Dinner- wraps, again with a little cheese, sliced avocado, absolutely anything you think would go.
  • Cut the sausages into smaller pieces and mix them with cooked pasta or noodles to make an easy dinner in a rush.

Making this sausage recipe even simpler.

The recipe below I have given you is when you have access to ALL the ingredients.

But there are times(like a curfew, lockdown or simply keeping your food expense down)when you might not have all the ingredients to make this devilled sausage stir-fry.

Hey, it happens, so what do we do?

We simply work with what we have.

That means, NOT adding banana peppers, onions, green chilies, turmeric, or curry powder. ONLY the sausages with the ginger and garlic.

And for the sauce, you use red chillie flakes(even chili paste would work here), black pepper, ketchup, sugar, pepper, and soy sauce. 

That’s it.

It won’t taste like the Sri Lankan devilled sausage recipe I have posted here but it will do for an emergency cookout.
