This rustic sausage and veggie stew is one of our favorite meals to prepare when the weather gets chilly. It’s just the right combination of simplicity and rustic elegance. Inspired by the flavorful South American recipe for puchero, this version is a hearty combination of garlicky sausage, tender beef, bacon, and vegetables.
We love how the familiar beef stew flavors come together with the other ingredients for something unique and delicious. What we really like about this recipe is that it only requires about 15 minutes of active cooking to create a comforting meal that tastes so fabulous! Anytime we serve this sausage and veggie stew, everyone leaves the table feeling satisfied and happy.
