Bratwurst and Vegetables in Oyster Sauce

Bratwurst, which is a sausage usually composed of pork, veal or beef, has become my husband's favorite since we got here in the US. We usually eat it grilled with rice or bread and soup, and sometimes with vegetable salad and soup. But yesterday, I thought of cooking it differently. I stir-fried it with potatoes, bell pepper and onions...and added soy sauce and oyster sauce to give it a hint of Asian flavor. 

Check out the recipe. I'm sure you'll like it...so simple and easy to cook!

* I shared this on Melt in Your Mouth Monday, Hearth and Soul Hop, Delectable Tuesday, Tempt My Tummy Tuesday, Tuesdays At The Table, Tasty Tuesdays and Made From Scratch Tuesday.

Prep Time: 15 mins          Cook Time: ~15 mins           Servings: 4-6                              

Ingredients:
  • 8 pcs. bratwurst, bias-sliced into ½ inch thick (You can slice it while still a little bit frozen, or you can cook it first accdg. to package "skillet preparation" directions before slicing. I prefer cooking it first.)
  • ½ cup red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • ½ cup green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 yellow onion, cut into rings
  • 2 medium-sized potatoes, each cut into 8 pcs.
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • ½ Tbsp soy sauce
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp chives
  • Salt
 
Procedure:
1. Over medium heat, stir-fry bratwurst in olive oil for about a minute, that is if you are using cooked bratwurst. If not, stir-fry until brown.
2. Add potatoes. Stir-fry until almost cooked.
3. Add bell peppers and onions. Stir fry until cooked but still crunchy.
4. Add oyster sauce, soy sauce and black pepper. Add salt to suit your taste. Mix well. Sprinkle with chives. Simmer for a minute.
5. Transfer to a serving dish. Serve with bread or hot rice!

  12. Pinay! This is such a unique recipe I just want to try it! What a combination of flavors and colors. I never though to combine Asian Oyster sauce with a German sausage, but that is why food fusion is so neat! I will be sharing this on my hearth and soul hop highlights this friday at a moderate life! Thanks for sharing it with us on the hearth and soul hop! All the best, alex
