Irish Bangers and Mash

Here's a delicious dish to make, just in time for your St. Patrick's Day celebration.

1 tablespoon canola oil
8 bratwurst sausages (or your favorite sausage)
large sweet onion, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 tablespoons flour
2 cups beef stock
1 cup Guinness beer

Refrigerator Mashed Potatoes or Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausages and place lid on skillet. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until sausages reach an internal temperature of 150 degrees. Remove sausages and cover with foil to keep warm. 

Add another tablespoon oil to skillet and saute onion and garlic, until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in flour. Add half of stock and the beer, stirring until combined. Cook over medium heat, stirring every few minutes until the gravy thickens. Add the remaining stock and continue to cook until gravy thickens to desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper. Add cooked sausages to the gravy and serve over mashed potatoes.
