The ultimate retro recipe for sausages – curried Sausages. It’s the top 80’s old-fashioned recipe – curry sausage gravy with carrots and beans.
As retro as bell bottoms, pants are curried sausages. Flares are slowly making a comeback ….., as fashion-savvy people are aware.
Curried sausages have always stayed in style, in my opinion!!
If you are still deciding about this retro favorite, consider this: Curry Sausages are just sausages in gravy with an addition of curry flavor.
If you enjoy these three things, then this recipe is for you!
What you need
This recipe is simple. It’s the same as Sausages and Gravy.
Some old recipes call for water instead of broth or stock when making curried sausages, but it lacks flavor.
Some older recipes suggest the sausages be boiled rather than browned. This made me cry!?
How To Make It
This quick and easy dinner recipe is called Curried Sausages. Browning the sausages takes about 6-8 minutes. Making the curried sausage gravy takes only 5 minutes!
- Brown sausages. Remove and chop into pieces if desired.
- Saute onions and garlic — essential flavor base for a simple sauce.
- Cook off curry powder. This little extra step brings out the curry flavor, an essential step for a sauce. I do this in my chicken curry, curried rice, and other simple recipes.
- Cook off the flour. This will thicken the gravy.
- While mixing, add the chicken stock in small amounts.
- Add sausages, peas, and carrots.
- Let the sauce simmer for a few minutes– it will thicken to a gravy consistency.
- Serve over rice, noodles, or bread.
