  • 400g pork sausages pack of 6 cut into chunks
  • 50 ml olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 3 celery stalks approx. 100g sliced
  • 3 small red onions approx. 300g finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 carrots approx. 140g thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tomatoes approx. 200g chopped
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 x 400g cans butter beans drained and rinsed
  • 500 ml chicken stock
  • 15g fresh parsley finely chopped


  • Use a large casserole or heavy-based pan and place on a medium heat. Add the chunks of sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, making sure they are fully cooked through. This should take only about 10 minutes.
  • Remove the sausage pieces from the pan, leaving the pan on the heat and setting the sausage aside in a bowl.
  • Add the olive oil and garlic to the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Now add the celery, red onions, tomato purée, carrots, salt, and tomatoes. Cook on a medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Add the paprika and cinnamon to the sauce and let the spices cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the beans, chicken stock and the cooked sausage, put the lid on the pan, and cook on a medium to low heat for 45 minutes.
  • Once cooked through, the whole stew will have thickened significantly.
  • Take off the heat and stir in the chopped parsley.
  • Serve…and most importantly enjoy...with some homemade bread!!
