Barbecue Italian Sausages

The tangy barbecue sauce found here is fast, flavorful and extremely versatile. It's fantastic on sausages, but don't stop there; give it a try on ribs or with pulled pork.


4 servings


4 uncooked Italian sausage links
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 cup dry red wine or beef broth
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon Liquid Smoke, optional
4 hot dog buns, split


Grill sausages, covered, over medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute green pepper and onion in oil for 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. Stir in wine. Bring to a boil; cook for 2 minutes or until liquid is evaporated.

Stir in the ketchup, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, cumin, chili powder and Liquid Smoke if desired. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 2 to 3 minutes or until thickened. Place sausages in buns; serve with sauce.
