Mild Italian sausages and sweet mini bell peppers pressure cooked in a flavorful tomato sauce.
Teri, a sweet Pressure Cooker Today reader, loved this recipe so much she shared it with me and said I was welcome to share it with you. She adapted her famous Sausage and Peppers recipe to the pressure cooker and says, “now it’s ready in 29 minutes start to finish rather than 4 hours of simmering.”
When I went to the market to buy the sausages and peppers, I’d planned on buying green bell peppers, but Winco had this cute little bag of colorful mini sweet peppers, and I couldn’t resist buying that instead. I thought they’d be fun for the pictures.
Teri’s family loved her Pressure Cooker Sausage and Peppers recipe, and she loved basking in the compliments. I served it with pasta, but Teri serves it as a main dish to keep her carb intake to a minimum.
Making Teri’s Sausage and Peppers in an Instant Pot
Teri suggested making the sausage and peppers a day ahead, then chilling it and lifting off the fat in a big piece before reheating it the next day. I used a turkey baster to skim off the fat.
We don’t generally eat sausages and peppers at our house, but I was really surprised how much my family liked the sausages. The sauce was really flavorful, and I loved how easy the recipe was to make. If you’re a sausage and peppers lover, you’re going to love this recipe. Thanks for sharing it Terri!
Update: Sausage and Peppers are an awesome comfort-food meal. I’ve made a short video to show yow how quick and easy it cooks up in the Instant Pot / Electric Pressure Cooker.
