  • shallow cast iron pot/ skillet or oven prove dish - 12 inches in diameter
  • shallow oven tray


  • 12 pork sausages
  • 2 tbsp oil for frying
  • 2 yellow onions cut in half and thinly sliced
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 4 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tbsp muscovado sugar
  • 1 small bird eye chilli slit along the length with seeds removed
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp red paprika
  • 2 red/yellow bell peppers cut into thick 2 cm/under 1 inch strips
  • 220 ml Guinness
  • Salt


Browning the sausages

  • Preheat the oven to 200C - fan-assisted program.
  • Brown the sausages on the middle shelf for 16 minutes. Turn them after the first 8 minutes for more even colour.
  • Let them cool down on the side until they are easy to handle.

Preparing the sauce

  • Use a large shallow ovenproof skillet and fry the onions until just starting to turn golden.
  • Add chopped tomatoes, ketchup, sugar, all spices (cayenne pepper, birds eye chilli, and red paprika). Give it a few stirs and add the bell peppers. Cook for an additional 8 - 10 minutes to let the tomatoes reduce a little bit and peppers soften slightly.
  • Pour in the Guinness and season with salt. Gently bring the sauce to boil again while you pre-cut the sausages.

Roasting in the oven

  • Make sure the oven is still preheated to 200C / fan.
  • Make small cuts across the top of each sausage.
  • Insert the sausages into the sauce, a pre-cut side down.
  • Cook the casserole for 30 - 35 minutes. Turn the sausages - pre-cut side up approximately in the middle of the recommending cooking time.


  • Serve with either a thick slice of bread, mashed potatoes or rice.
