'Dish of the month' November - Nigel Slaters slow cooked sausages

This is such a simple recipe but something I would never had thought of myself without looking in Kitchen Diaries II for inspiration for Novembers Dish of the Month. Its a recipe for slow cooked sausages by Nigel Slater...November as a month just seems to scream out for sausages.

The ingredients for this recipe are simple and consist of onions, flour, beef stock, some good quality sausages (ours were Linconshires' - brought back from the county by my sister) and...dark ale and brown sugar...I cooked my sausages in Guinness, for the ale part of the recipe...and it turned out to be fabulous.

So perfect for a wet and windy bonfire weekend...served with buttery mash and greens, the flavour of the gravy surrounding the sausages is amazing as the touch of brown sugar sweetens the onions and the ale.

What are you waiting for? Grab a a fork and get tucking in!
