Good stews don't need to take hours to cook in order to be amazing. You just need to use the right ingredients and techniques. We suggest using pork sausage but you can try it with turkey or chicken instead.
Combine the following ingredients and gently massage the sliced kale for 2 minutes until it feels soft and shiny. Set aside.
Add the oil and set the temperature to 300°F/ 150°C (medium).
Add the aromatics and cook for 1 minute or until translucent making sure they don't toast or burn.
Add the sausage and sear for 3 minutes, occasionally flipping the meat. Make sure not to break down the meat too much in order to keep the stew chunky.
Add the following ingredients and lower the temperature to 230°F/ 110°C (low). Cook for 8 to 9 minutes or until the sauce has reduced and thickened and the sausage is fully cooked.
Add the beans and lower the temperature to 225°F/ 110°C (low) and cook for 2 minutes while gently stirring occasionaly. Make sure not to break the beans.
Turn off the heat and enjoy this chunky stew with a nice slice of toasted bread or a fresh side salad.
