I saw this in the magazine and thought Eureka!, what a great idea, but hesitated after seeing the negative reviews. Made it anyway and glad I did! I will say that I browned the sausage and half the onion in the pot then took it them out before adding the rest of the ingredients. Added them towards the end of cooking, otherwise made it exactly as written. I agreed with another reviewer that I didn't like boiled meat, but it might have turned out fine as written. That said, was really good and will make again for sure. It seems to be a very adaptable recipe to different flavor profiles so look forward to experimenting with this in future! Good job!
