You’ll Need

  • 1-2tbsp sunflower oil
  • 12 high quality pork sausages
  • 6 rashers of rind less bacon, cut into 1inch lengths
  • 2 onions
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1tsp hot chilli powder or smoked paprika
  • 1x 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 300ml chicken stock
  • 2tbsp tomato puree
  • 1tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1tbsp muscovado sugar
  • 1tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 100ml red/white wine
  • 1x 400g can of butter beans
  • Salt and Pepper to season

Method

To start this casserole you will firstly need to heat up your wood fired oven to its optimum temperature, then allow time to cool until the oven reaches 240°c. 

Next, heat some oil in a large frying pan and fry your sausages gently for 10 minutes. Once they have browned all over, pop them into a large casserole dish and leave to one side.

Now you will need to fry the bacon, onions and garlic in a pan. Once the bacon has started to crisp and the onions soften, you can then sprinkle over the chilli powder and cook for a few minutes longer. Next stir in the herbs, tomatoes, chicken stock, tomato puree, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Pour over the wine and bring to simmer.

When ready, transfer your filling into your casserole dish containing the sausages. Pop your mixture into your wood fired oven with the lid on for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so

You can then drain the butter beans, stirring them into your casserole. Pop it back into your wood fired oven for 10 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.

Season with a little salt and pepper and serve with some fresh wood fired bread for a winter evening treat.
