Smoked Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans
This is hands-down one of my favorite meals, any time of the year. I make a HUGE pot, so you may want to adjust the portions to suit your own needs. One reason I make so much of it is because it's awesome leftover, and I'm NOT much of a "leftovers" kinda gal.
Smoked Sausage, Red Potatoes and Green Beans
3 lbs. fresh green beans, trimmed and ends cut
2 lbs. (or more, I swear, sometimes I use more like 3 lbs!) red potatoes, quartered
1 large onion, sliced
1 lb. smoked sausage (again, add more if you wish) cut into 1 inch chunks
*1 tsp. salt
*1 tsp. ground black pepper
*1 tsp. garlic powder
*1 tsp. onion powder
Water to cover all
**Honestly, I fudge on ALL the spices. I add quite a bit more salt and pepper; and I just throw in the garlic and onion powder, without measuring. I know that's not much help, but it's how I roll.
In a large pot, combine all ingredients and simmer for abt. 45 minutes or till potatoes and green beans are tender.
