Servings 4 people


  • Tefal Cook 4 Me or
  • Pressure Cooker or
  • Slow Cooker


  • 2 tps sunflower oil
  • 8 good quality pork sausages
  • 100 g 1 large chopped onion
  • 100 g 1 diced red pepper
  • 400 g can of mixed beans drained
  • 400 g can chopped tomatoes
  • 100 g 2 large carrots, diced
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 150 ml red wine
  • 1 tsp sugar


  • Pour the oil into the Cook4Me, if using, otherwise heat in a large saucepan
  • Brown the sausages for a few minutes, or follow the instructions on the Cook4Me
  • Add the onion and pepper and brown until softened
  • Add all the remaining ingredients. In the Cook4Me, this dish will cook for 9 minutes and be ready to serve with some rice, noodles, yummy roast potatoes, or a chunk of crusty bread. So pour yourself a glass of wine (squash if you're under 18) and set the table!
  • In the saucepan, cover and simmer for around 20 minutes, until thickened and ready to serve.
  • Season and serve straight away.


If you don't have the Tefal Cook4Me, you could use a pressure cooker in a similar way, or cook for 5-8 hours in your usual slow cooker.
