Made this last night with champ mash and it was ace. I added a big splash of red wine to reduce whilst the sausages were cooking at the beginning, also added a teaspoon of black treacle and a dash of vinegar whilst waiting for the stock to reduce. Was yum.

Simple and delicious. Waited till mushroom-hating daughter left for weekend and really enjoyed having this dish with so many chestnut and button mushrooms!

Nice, but maybe not as great as the comments below suggest - very wet, so mash is essential to mop it all up.

A really brilliant mid-week family meal. Cheap, tasty, quick and simple - what more could you ask? Served with garlic mash, as per above suggestions, and green beans. Already a firm family favourite.

Make it meat free with cauldron sausages and a good vegetable stock. I've never tried the original but the meat free option is yummy. 5 stars for the idea even although I've changed it a little.

Amazing flavour for something so easy, would never have thought to use olives in a stew but loved it! Used Italian flavour beef sausages and double the amount of kalamata olives. The only problem was the amount of liquid, it comes out way way too runny. The phrase "simmer until sauce is reduced a little" is quite misleading seeing that there is only more an more liquid with time as the mushrooms cook and release their juices. Would not use the stock next time, but add a stock cube directly to the tomato sauce. Served it for dinner with mash and for lunch the next day mixed with penne pasta - great both ways.

Just made this as a veggie version. So easy and quick. Very, very tasty. Made mashed potato with horseradish to go with it. A really hearty meal.

Just made this, and enjoyed it thoroughly. I left out the olives, and added a red onion with the mushrooms. I also poured in some red wine and left the sauce to thicken a little longer than the recipe states and it was well worth the wait. I served it with some mashed tatties with garlic salt and pepper. lovely.

I would have rated it higher if it turned out a little less bland. I had to add a good bit of salt and pepper to get the flavours out. It might be the sausages I used for it though!

Very enjoyable, But i was the only one to eat the olives, Think i should of substituted with something else.

Why is this so good?! I was looking for something easy to throw together for a lazy dinner, and was really surprised how delicious this turned out. We used kangaroo sausages, which I'd never had before but they were amazing in this. Served it with mash.

Quick, easy, cheap and extremely tasty! Defiantly need something like mash or a big chunk of bread and butter to soak up the juices!
