"My brother created this recipe when he first got married. It's one of my favorites. I love to serve it with corn, mashed potatoes and croissant rolls. You can find sweet and sour sauce in the Asian food section of your local grocery store."

  1. Place the sliced sausage in a large skillet over medium high heat. Saute for 5 to 10 minutes, flipping often, until well browned. Drain excess fat and set sausage aside.
  2. In the same skillet over medium heat, combine the green bell pepper, red bell pepper, onion and butter or margarine and saute for 10 minutes, or until all vegetables are tender. Add the sausage and stir together well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Then add the sweet and sour sauce, cayenne pepper and hot pepper sauce. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, allowing all the flavors to blend.

This was ok - I think it would have been better with chicken. Smoked sausage with sweet and sour sauce just doesn't quite fit.

I don't think I would have even tasted 2 Tablespoons of sweet and sour sauce; I added the entire 10oz jar and it came out perfect for me. I didn't add any hot spice because I used a cajun-spic...

This recipe is delicious. You HAVE to use a whole bottle of Sweet and SOur- and serve over rice. I added some crushed red peppers, and 2 cloves of minced garlic. PERFECT blend! Kids, husband, an...

My husband and I really liked it but my 6 and 3 year old did not. O well...I tried. The pineapple made the dish great.
