Sweet n Sour Sausage & Peppers

I've been challenged by Heinz to come up with a recipe using a 'secret ingredient' of theirs. The ingredient they wanted me to use is Tomato Ketchup, which, to be honest, I do actually add to recipes from time to time, after all it does already include herbs and spices so is ideal to add a bit of flavour.

I was sent a Secret Ingredient pack to help me on my way.


Firstly here's Nadia Sawalha showing how Heinz Tomato Ketchup can be used in various recipes : 

Sweet n Sour Sausage & Peppers - serves 4

12 Cumberland Sausages
tbsp Olive oil
400g tin of Tomatoes
2 garlic cloves
2cm fresh ginger, peeled
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp Heinz Tomato Ketchup
1 tbsp Cornflour
1 red onion
2 Peppers (any colour)
Diced fresh or tinned pineapple (optional) - I didn't use this as my children aren't keen

  • Cut the each sausage into 3 pieces and fry in the olive oil until lightly browned
  • Drain sausages onto some kitchen paper and pour any excess oil away
  • Blend the tomatoes, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, tomato ketchup and cornflour together until smooth
  • Cut the peppers & onion into large chunks and fry for approx 3-4 minutes
  • Add the sausages back to the pan, along with the sauce 
  • Bring to the boil, replace the lid and simmer for approx 20 minutes

Serve with boiled rice


I was sent the Secret Ingredient pack for the purpose of this recipe challenge
