Sautéed Purple Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans with Smoked Sausage Recipe




  • 1 pound purple potatoes (or any preferred variety), washed and diced
  • 1/2 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and halved
  • 1 pound smoked sausage, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Slap Ya Mama seasoning (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prepare the Ingredients:
    • Wash and dice the purple potatoes into bite-sized cubes.
    • Trim the ends of the fresh green beans and cut them in half.
    • Slice the smoked sausage into rounds.
  2. Brown the Smoked Sausage:
    • In a large skillet or pan, brown the sliced smoked sausage over medium-high heat. This will enhance its flavor and create a nice base for the dish. Once browned, remove excess grease if needed.
  3. Sauté the Potatoes and Green Beans:
    • Add 2 tablespoons of cooking oil to the skillet with the smoked sausage. Heat the oil until it’s hot.
    • Toss in the diced purple potatoes and halved green beans. Stir well to coat them with the oil.
  4. Seasoning:
    • Sprinkle the onion powder, garlic powder, and Slap Ya Mama seasoning over the potatoes and green beans. Mix thoroughly to ensure even distribution of the seasonings.
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Cooking Process:
    • Allow the vegetables and sausage to cook over medium-high heat until you hear the veggies sizzling and notice a golden-brown color developing on the potatoes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  6. Simmer:
    • Once the potatoes and green beans are well-sautéed, reduce the heat to low. Cover the skillet with a lid and let it simmer. This will allow the flavors to meld, and the vegetables will continue to cook to your preferred tenderness.
  7. Check for Doneness:
    • After about 10-15 minutes of simmering, check the doneness of the vegetables. Adjust the cooking time based on your preference for the level of tenderness.
  8. Serve:
    • Once the potatoes and green beans are cooked to perfection, serve the sautéed mixture with smoked sausage on a platter. Optionally, garnish with fresh herbs like parsley for a burst of color and added flavor.

This cheap and simple recipe yields a delicious, hearty dish perfect for any weeknight dinner. Enjoy your Sautéed Purple Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans with Smoked Sausage!
