Casaculinarian.com Signature Sandwich for week 4/18/2016
“Classic Sausage with Sweet Peppers & Onions”
Although Classic Foods seem boring to most Chef’s… I think they are just as challenging. I believe in trying to make a Classic better than anyone else…
Recipe is for 4 Sandwiches:
rope Italian sweet sausage 1 and 1/2 pounds
Kaiser rolls 4
red bell peppers 2 cut into strips
yellow onion 1 cut into sliced circles
salt and pepper for taste
granulated garlic 1/2 teaspoon
onion powder 1/2 teaspoon
Chile powder 1/4 teaspoon (flavor and color)
olive oil 2 tablespoons
The most important part about this sandwich is flavor and crunch of the vegetables… Heat a sauté pan on medium heat and add olive oil. Place onions down first separating them down evenly, peppers on top. Add your seasonings. Let this sizzle without mixing around allowing onions to cook first, about 2 minutes. Then start to mix around. Cook al dente. You want to taste the crunch in the peppers. This makes the sandwich.
I choose the rope sausage because all the meat cooks together with in the casing. This makes a tastier sausage. Cook on the grill until Pork is 165 degrees. For me the next most important step is cutting the sausage in 4 inch units and then splitting them. This allows the sausage to stay on the sandwich and get a real bite out of it!
In closing, this is an easy recipe but make yours better than anyone else’s…
