Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the smoked sausage into 1/2-inch slices.
  2. Slice the zucchinis, dice the peppers, wash and cut the leek into 1/2-inch squares (white and light green parts only).

  5. Heat the oil and butter in a wok or large frying pan, add the sausages and stir-fry for 5 minutes, or until browned.
  6. Add the vegetables, apple, and cayenne and stir-fry for another 5 minutes or until desired texture is achieved; season to taste with salt and pepper.
  7. Whisk the hard cider and cornstarch together, pour into the pan and stir until the sauce has thickened and the sausages are coated.
  8. Serve with rice.
  9. You can use any smoked sausage with this, made from beef, pork, chicken, or turkey - whichever is your favorite!
