That gives me obviously something to work with. That and the fact that my sister-in-law sent us Gaspar’s Sausage Gift Packs as a present “for emergencies”. One of those emergencies emerged this weekend, with lots of fresh banana pepper from the CSA in the fridge. I didn’t feel like cooking pork chops, the only fresh meet in the fridge at that point, but was staring at the Linguica in the freezer. Here comes dinner!
- 1 Linguica
- 1 pound banana peppers
- 1 medium sized onion
- 3 gloves of garlic
- olive oil
- Dice or slice the onion.
- Slice the banana peppers into strips of 1×1/4″.
- Slice the Linguica.
- Saute the onions in oil.
- Add the sausage and let them heat through.
- Add the peppers.
- Add garlic whichever way you like, minced or sliced
- Pepper and salt to taste
- Cook until peppers are soft and most of the water has evaporated
The entire composition had a sweet flavor, mostly coming from the banana peppers. They and the onions even more had soaked up some of the Linguica juices, which added an interesting flavor. I will certainly cook this again, even if I have to buy the peppers separately.
