Day 6: “Wednesday Dinner” (Balsamic Sausage with Onions and Green Beans)

So I am sad to say that we have cooked one of my favorite meals today. We call it Wednesday dinner, because last semester we cooked it on Wednesdays due to a late class I had (as well as American Idol). It is very basic, takes almost no time and all you have to do is use your nose. This would be a great dish for a party starter, or a meal for a day where you have no time.


Wednesday Dinner

Prep time: 5 min

Cook time: 10 min

Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 2 cups of frozen chopped green beans
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 Hillshire Farm Chicken Hardwood Smoked Sausage
  • 2/3 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/3 cup of reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch

Directions

  1. Throw minced garlic, onions and green beans in a medium to large sauce pan on medium heat. Stir occasionally for about 5 minutes (until green beans and onions are softened).
  2. Add the soy sauce and balsamic vinegar. Stir for about a minute. Then smell… If it does not burn your nose with balsamic vinegar, your doing it wrong. Don’t worry, the smell cooks out a little.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Executive Decisions

Obviously none since this is our recipe adapted from my mom’s

How was it?

Well, we love this dish. You may not be a fan of balsamic vinegar, just trust me though, it is delicious. This is something we have made a bunch of times, and never been disappointing.

Things we would change

Allison likes her onions sliced, I like them diced. Since I cut the onions, she was unhappy.
