Sausage and Potato Stew

It's a dark and stormy night, and this sausage potato stew is the perfect dinner for it.


  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 2 carrots, cut into chunks

  • 2 stalks celery, sliced

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 375 g Polish or other smoked sausage, cut into 1/2-in. chunks

  • 2 tsp paprika

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth, (made from bouillon cubes)


  • In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the carrot, celery, onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until the onion is beginning to soften. Add the sausage chunks, paprika, salt and pepper and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

  • Now dump in the potatoes and broth and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover the pan, lower the heat to medium low and let simmer for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

  • SPLURGE! Double the sausage if you’re feeling flush. But everything else is perfect just the way it is.

  • SPLURGE! Oh go ahead and use chicken breasts, if you must. And while you’re at it, double the amount of chicken. It will cost you at least an extra 75 cents a serving.
