I love this recipe. Skillet Sausage and Peppers is so easy and tastes so darn good. It is one of hubby’s favorite meals. I bet you never knew that sausage, peppers and onions could come together in such perfect harmony. You can serve it over rice, couscous, pasta or spaghetti squash for a low carb option. I like it just by itself! They sell so many tasty and healthy chicken sausages these days.

    NOTES Mirin is sweetened sake. You can sub three parts sherry to one part sugar or omit if it is difficult to find. Both mirin and sriracha would be in Asian food section of your grocery store.
