Perfect for a crowd on game day. Easy enough for a weeknight dinner. This recipe for hoagies with sous vide sausage peppers and onions is simple and gourmet.
Sous vide any sausage
Chicken sausage, bratwurst, Italian sausage, chorizo. They all taste great on a hoagie roll and will make hungry people happy.
These sausages are juicy, juicy, juicy!
If you don’t own a sous vide machine, you can boil or fry the sausage. But the sous vide cooking method is incomparable. It’s gourmet comfort food at home. This style of cooking makes the sausage super juicy. The beer-infused roasted red peppers and caramelized onions could be a dish of their own.
In this recipe, sous vide sausage peppers and onions cook in a beer marinade. YUM.
If you’re not feeling boozy, substitute the beer with a broth.
After the sausages finish cooking in the sous vide bag, they need 1-2 minutes on a hot grill or frying pan. The delicious “beer juice” that remains in the sous vide bag cooks off on the stove. Pour the remaining liquid, peppers and onions in a hot pan and cook until the juices evaporate.
Slice the sous vide sausage in half before serving on a toasted hoagie roll. Dijon mustard and cheeses like provolone or American are worthy toppings. Pile heaping amounts of caramelized onions and roasted red peppers on top of the sausage.
The messier, the better.
Mix leftover ingredients with eggs for breakfast. Sous vide sausage, peppers, and onions make delicious omelets! (but, maybe don’t put them in pancakes!)
