Smoked Sausage, Green Bean, and Potato Boil

This is a recipe I got from a co-worker almost 11 years ago and it has become one of the easiest and liked by all go-to recipes I have.  It involves 5 ingredients, one pot, about 15 minutes of prep time, and approximately 25 minutes to cook.  I don't know about you, but at this pig pen, it doesn't get much easier than that except for maybe those duck legs I made.

Any way, the ingredients are as follows:
1 regular size package of skinless smoked sausage
2 cans of green beans
4-6 potatoes
4 beef bouillon cubes
water to fill your pot

First I add the green beans including the liquid to the pot. 

Then I wash the potatoes and cut them up into chunks.  (I leave the skin on them to save me one time-consuming taste.  Plus, isn't the skin good for us?) 

Then add to the pot with the green beans.  

Then I cut up the smoked sausage into to 1-2 inch sections and add smoked sausage to the pot.

Then I use the empty green bean can to add more water to cover the ingredients in the pot and add 4 beef bouillon cubes.

Bring the covered pot to a boil over medium to high heat.  Once a boil is achieved, I turn down the temperature and let the ingredients continue to cook covered for approximately the next 25 minutes stirring occasionally.  Basically you want to cook until the potatoes are tender.

Then it is time to enjoy a meal that contains a meat, potato, and vegetable.  Serve with a fruit or ketchup and you have a complete meal in less than an hour.



  1. We love this recipe too! Mine doesn't call for boullion though. We just use pepper. It's also a great way to use fresh green beans in the summer. Or, you can throw it in the crockpot in the morning on low and have a wonderful dinner and a wonderful smelling house when you get home!

  2. Get outta my head! I have a package of that exact sausage and was just thinking about dinner. THANK YOU!

    Def will be following you for more! :) (No pressure there but y'know, if a follower had, say, ground turkey for tomorrow's dinner what might you do with that? Y'know, just making conversation here ...)

  3. I'm sure it goes great with a glass of Napa Valley wine ;-) Good to hear you today! Great exciting news about things to come with RFOA! Cant' wait to hear more!

  4. Nothing like a good sausage recipe for kids love sausage. Do you guys ever make your own?

  5. So going to try this! You just can't go wrong with a one pot 25 minute meal!

  6. We do something similar but I use a skillet and mix in a can of diced tomatoes. Quick, easy, tasty.

  7. Looking forward to trying this recipe. I love finding one that I have all the ingredients too already! Thanks!
