I’m still having success using my Instant Pot. Meals like these come together very quickly and I love how you can just set it and forget it. The saute option within the Instant Pot was a big selling feature for me, as you develop so much flavor being able to brown it first.

This stew really only needs a few ingredients. Most of the flavor will be coming from the sausage that you use. I think the best options would be: mild or hot italian turkey sausage and sweet italian turkey sausage.

You could also make this vegan by using vegan italian sausage (Yves or Field Roast both make one). It’ll be less cooking time as they aren’t raw, most are heat & serve. I’d remove the casing and cut into small pieces, still browning it how you would raw turkey sausage.

 

 

If you want it low carb, eat as is. If you aren’t watching carbs, its amazing with fresh bread. Leftovers are great for lunch the next day too.

I hope you give this a try soon! Its so easy and delicious, you really can’t go wrong! I’ll be keeping this one in the rotation the rest of winter!
