My family and I love this recipe but I do make a couple of changes. I don't use olives because no one except me really likes them, and I add a tin of baked beans which thickens the sauce sightly and adds some bulk. Delicious! Serve with warm crusty bread to soak up the lovely gravy :)

Easy and delicious.

Served with lazy champ mash (didn't even peel the spuds) and we all devoured it. Stored well for next day, too.

Really tasty and easy to make. I think it could have done with a bit more strong stock to make the sauce richer, but I'll be cooking it again.

I made this for tea I used pork and leek sausages drained the oil off before adding the stock will remove skin next time as it was a bit chewy. I used green olives as I didnt have any black ones and half the ammount of mushrooms and added a tin of butter beans and a few of chilli flakes left it to reduce and it did thicken nicely served it with boiled rice. It was lovely and tasty.

This was really delicious and took no time to make. Really flavoursome. Agree with other comments about needing much less mushrooms. Served with mash.. Yum

This is a cracker. A hearty, filling tasty stew which is all done in the one pot. I stuck to the recipe and wasn't disappointed, I defy anyone to know that's you've used low fat sausages in this winter warmer. One thing I'd mention the colour of the stew was more redder than in the photo above and therefore looks abit more appealing. Will definitely making this again.

This is a great baseline recipe, you can use Lincoln sausages if you want to tweak up the taste factor, or even chicken if you don’t like sausages, we’ve even used it without any meat and used more mushrooms along with bell peppers and challots for vegetarian friends.
Personally I more than double the garlic to give it a punch, but this recipe is simply great as posted.

Loved this recipe (and I'm not normally a fan of mushrooms!). Halved the portion to make it for two people but kept the same amount of chopped (canned) tomatoes so more of a stew-like texture. Great just served with crusty bread!

This recipe was really lovely. I used vegetarian sausages as I prefer them to sausages but kept everything else the same. I added 2 tablespoons of plain flour halfway through to thicken the sauce. Served with sweet potato mash (added a veg stock cube to the water to give more flavour to the potato) and peas. Definitely one of my favourite meals made on good food.

I made this a while ago and remember it being very tasty. However I've got it going on the hob at the moment and found that the quantities to make up the sauce this time round seem a bit off, can't think why! I had to use 2 cans tomatoes and 400ml beef stock to get enough sauce to cover the mountain of mushrooms stated. However it smells pretty good! I'm serving it with polenta mash. I cheat and make mine with ready made polenta, boiled in the bag and then stir in some butter and cheese. MMM!
