Ah, mealtime—often a chaotic event that involves convincing tiny humans that broccoli is not the enemy and trying to whip up something that’s both delicious, quick and maybe even a tiny bit healthy. Enter Sausage and Steamed Veggies with Pineapple Sriracha Sauce. This dish checks all the boxes: tasty, simple, and capable of getting even the pickiest eater excited. Let’s dive into this culinary adventure, shall we?

First things first, let’s talk sausage. We’re not skimping here—grab your favorite variety. I prefer Aidells pineapple and bacon chicken sausage, but you do you. Whether you prefer a mild Italian sausage or something with a bit more kick, the choice is yours. The key is to cook it up to crispy perfection, letting those savory aromas fill your kitchen and draw the family out of their hidey-holes.

Veggie Victory

While the sausage is sizzling away, it’s time to prepare the veggies. Think vibrant bell peppers, crisp broccoli, carrots and sweet snap peas. Steaming them keeps their colors bright and their nutrients intact. Plus, it’s the easiest way to get that perfect tender-crisp texture. If you’ve got little helpers, this is the perfect time to get them involved. Just keep the knife work to yourself unless you enjoy minor heart attacks.

The Sauce Boss

Now, let’s address the star of the show: Pineapple Sriracha Sauce. This sauce is like a party in your mouth—sweet, spicy, and absolutely addictive. Combine pineapple juice, a touch of brown sugar, a generous squirt of Sriracha, and a splash of soy sauce. Simmer it until it’s thickened to a beautiful glaze. The sweetness of the pineapple perfectly balances the heat of the Sriracha, creating a sauce that’s so good you’ll want to put it on everything. And I do mean everything.

Bringing It All Together

Once your sausage is cooked to golden brown perfection and your veggies are steamed just right, it’s time to combine them. Toss everything together in a big pan, giving it all a good mix so the sausage and veggies are nicely coated in that glorious sauce. The result is a dish that’s as colorful as it is flavorful.

Gather everyone around the table and watch as their faces light up at the sight of this vibrant dish. The sausage pairs perfectly with the crisp veggies, and the Pineapple Sriracha Sauce ties it all together with a sweet and spicy kick. It’s a meal that satisfies on every level—plus, it’s a great way to sneak in those veggies without a single complaint.

Cleanup? What Cleanup?

One of the best parts about this dish is the minimal cleanup. With just one pan and a steamer basket to wash up, you’ll be out of the kitchen and back to family time in no time. Or, you know, catching up on that TV show you’ve been meaning to watch.

So, the next time you’re in need of a quick, delicious, and family-approved meal, remember this Sausage and Steamed Veggies with Pineapple Sriracha Sauce.  Happy cooking!

  6. You commented about the sauce potentially being too thick - I reduced mine to almost 1/4 cup and it refused to thicken at all. The flavours were really great and not something I would have thought to put together on my own and I plan to make it again - do you have any thoughts about what might have been my juice's problem for next time? xD
    1. What brand of juice did you use? Was it 100% pineapple juice or a blend?
      1. I used a 100% unsweetened pineapple juice. It wasn't that big of an issue, It was still absolutely fantastic :]
  7. This looks incredibly delicious! Thanks for linking up with What's Cookin' Wednesday!
