Winter Dinner

I made a pretty good dinner last night. I started with a pot large enough to handle the ingredients; a quart of beef stock, a cup of baby carrots, 4 red potatoes, quartered, ½ cup of mushrooms, 5 Johnsonville Bratwurst sausages, 1 tsp of minced garlic, 1 tsp of minced ginger, 1 Tbs of Worcestershire sauce, ½ tsp of Crystal red pepper sauce, 1/3 cup of chopped onions.

I began by heating the liquid ingredients, simmering them for about 15 minutes. Then I added the garlic, ginger, onions, carrots and potatoes and let them simmer for about 45 minutes. Then it was time to add the sausage (whole) and the mushrooms. Cook at low/medium for another 15-30 minutes, or until the carrots are like pasta; al dente and not limp. Serve in a shallow pasta bowl. Most excellent!
