Red and green pepper stew with Polish sausages and potatoes

This is a kind of Eastern European-flavoured dish, probably more Hungarian than anything else and is a quick and simple thing to cook on a weekday evening.

You will need;

some roughly-chopped red and green peppers
two chopped onions (I used red ones)
a couple of crushed garlic cloves
a tin of chopped tomatoes
a few Polish smoked pork sausages cut into chunks
three or four peeled and chopped potatoes
a tablespoon of paprika
a teaspoon of caraway seeds
sour cream or crème fraiche
salt and pepper
oil or fat for frying the vegetables (I had some chicken fat left over from a roast)

It is as simple as anything.

Fry the onions and garlic in the hot oil/fat until soft and add in the peppers and carry on frying. Add the potatoes and all the seasonings and fry until everything is coated in paprika. Add the tinned tomatoes and a tinful of water. Stir, bring to a simmer and add in the sausages. Cover and cook until the potatoes are soft. Stir in a couple of tablespoons of sour cream and serve. A chunk of crusty bread is all you need to accompany this.

If you want to drink something with it, a lightly chilled Pilsener beer would be nice or an uncomplicated fruity red wine would work as well.
