Hungarian Sausage Stew

Ingredients

  • 1 cup red ale
  • 8 oz skinless slab bacon, sliced 1/4 inch thick and cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 large yellow bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 3 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 12 oz spicy Hungarian sausage or chorizo, thickly sliced
  • 1 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 tbsp sweet paprika
  • 1 3/4 lb plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Grilled sourdough bread, for serving

Instructions

  1. In a large pan, cook the bacon strips over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 8 minutes.
  2. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until very lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the bell peppers and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned, about 5 minutes longer.
  4. Stir in the sausage slices, crushed red pepper and paprika and cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the tomatoes and cook until beginning to break down, about 5 minutes.
