Looking for a Portuguese sausage recipe? This sausage is made with Linguiça, a mild Portuguese style pork sausage made with chili-seasoned smoke-cured pork and seasoned with garlic and paprika.
Start by gathering together the ingredients for this recipe!
Wash and dry the produce, then peel and dice the carrots and onion into small cubes. You’ll want them to be about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick so they cook quickly
Slice the sausage into 1/2 inch thick pieces.
Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan, then add the onion and garlic to soften. Next, add the sausage and cook for 2-3 minutes until starting to brown on the edges.
Add the carrots, potato, and bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper and cook 1-2 minutes.
Pour the water over the sausage and vegetables, then cover for 10 minutes until the potato and carrot begin to soften. This is where the potatoes take on some of the flavor of the sausage and it tastes amazing.
Add the red beans and spinach, cover for another 3-5 minutes until the spinach has wilted and the cubed potatoes have cooked through and softened.
Season with salt and pepper and serve! This Portuguese sausage recipe is a true one-skillet meal, so you can carefully take the whole skillet to the table to serve.
