15 Minute Curried Snags

Updated: Oct 4, 2023

If you've got a Bedourie Oven or a Pot and Pan, you'll want to try this one at home or out in the bush!

No matter where we go or what we experience, some things just bring back feelings of home and bring back memories of your childhood.

This is one of those dishes for me.

Growing up within a fairly big Aboriginal family I can remember being about 6 or 7 years old and watching Dad or Nan cook up a massive 20L Pot of "curried snags" to feed whoever might come round for tea that night, sometimes up to 25 people or so.

The amount of food that went into these dinners, the noises in the kitchen and don't even get me started on the smell of the unbelievable curry spices simmering away on the stove!

These are the kinds of meals that we love. Quick, easy, comforting and hopefully memory making for our kids!

Before you start thinking "25 PEOPLE!? I'll never get through that!"

We've dialed this one back to feed a family of four and usually have a little bit leftover for a sandwich for tomorrows lunch!

The Gear you need

The Ingredients you need -

  • 500g Beef Sausages

  • 2 tablespoons oil

  • 1/2 onion

  • 1 tsp crushed garlic

  • 1 - 2 tablespoons curry powder

  • 1 cup Beef Stock

  • 2 tablespoons Tomato Paste

  • 1/4 cup Thickened Cream

  • 1 cup Peas (Frozen or Fresh)

  • 1 cup Corn (Frozen or Fresh)

  • 5 or 6 Small to Medium Potatoes (optional)

At home or out camping? This is a feed everyone will love!

How to Do It

  • Start off by bringing a pot of water to the boil and adding your potatoes and pumpkin. (If you want to serve with these)

  • Cook sausages in about a tablespoon of oil, keep them turning until just cooked. Remove from the pan and set aside for now.

  • Using the same pan, add another splash of oil, crushed garlic and onions. Cook through until the onions go clear and you can smell that unmistakable Bunnings onion aroma.

  • Add in the curry powder and continue to stir in for a minute or until it mixes in evenly.

  • Add your Beef Stock and Tomato Paste and mix through until completely combined.

  • Simmer for about 10 minutes or until the mixture starts to thicken up to your liking. Add salt and pepper now if you think it needs a little bit more.

  • Slice up the sausages into and chuck them back into the pan along with 1 cup of peas and 1 cup of corn.

  • Add and stir through the cream until evenly combined.

  • Drain potatoes and carrots, mash with a dash of milk and butter.

  • Serve up and enjoy with the family!

Again, this is one of the quickest and easiest dinners you can have whether your out camping, living on the road, or just chasing some comfort food at home.

Plus it can be very easily changed up to suit most dietary restrictions!
