Sausages with Beer-Braised Onions and Peppers

A dark beer gives this dish a more pronounced flavor, but it works with any type of beer. For a sandwich variation, serve the sausage and vegetables on whole wheat hot dog buns.


4 servings (serving size: 1 sausage piece and 2/3 cup vegetable mixture)
