Slow Cooker Smoked Sausage, Green Beans, and Potatoes

  • Cooking Time:

    4-6 hours
  • Servings:

    4

Ingredients

1 lb Smoked Sausage
4 Medium Potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 Medium Red Onion, sliced
2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans Green Beans, drained
3 c. Chicken Broth
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
salt, to taste

Slow Cook­er Smoked Sausage, Green Beans and Pota­toes is one of the most pop­u­lar recipes on this web­site!  This recipe is super easy and it’s an entire meal all in itself — a meat, starch and veg­etable.  If I’m feel­ing in the mood I will even throw mush­rooms in this recipe to add a lit­tle extra fla­vor.  It’s deli­cious with or with­out them. Enjoy!

  1. Com­bine all ingre­di­ents EXCEPT smoked sausage, and place in a 6-Quart slow cook­er.
  2. Add chick­en broth to bare­ly cov­er ingre­di­ents.
  3. Cov­er. Cook over LOW for 4 hours on LOW or until pota­toes are almost done.
  4. Cut the smoked sausage into 2-inch pieces and add to the slow cook­er.
  5. Cov­er and cook on LOW for 1 hour.
  6. Mix before serv­ing, and serve with a slot­ted spoon so the excess liq­uid can drain away.

Note: If you like some snap in your green beans, use fresh instead of canned and add them to the crock with sausage (1 hour before done crock­ing)! This is the way my fam­i­ly asks me to make it!

Hap­py Crock­ing!

I have made this for­ev­er. It was my go to recipe when I need­ed a real­ly quick meal.. I cooked it in my pres­sure cook­er 10 min. and then let it cool. Served it with corn­bread and coleslaw. Oh so good!

Does it real­ly need all that water? Seems like it would get mushy and gross! Has any­one else done this yet?

Brandie

I fol­lowed the recipe, water and all, I found the veg­gies were real­ly good. but the sausage was real­ly bland. Not my fav. I will try again, only pota­toes, green beans and onion with a lit­tle wather, then grill the sausage. I also added a ton of gar­lic and salt and pep­per to get some taste into it.

My ques­tion is does it real­ly need all that SODIUM and Fat? Why not add a few more table­spoons of salt so we can get this dish up too 100% of our dai­ly sodi­um intake?
I’d use a high­er qual­i­ty less sodi­um meat and use fresh green bean instead of canned.

I made this tonight. I used Hill­shire Farms smoked sausage on low for 7 hrs. The veg­gies turned out nice­ly but the smoked sausage lost all of its fla­vor. I assumed it would just get more from the onions but instead it sort of blew up and lit­er­al­ly tast­ed like noth­ing. Any sug­ges­tions?

Kazuya

Hel­lo Barb! It is for real to crock for 10–12 hours, but as you know some crocks cook faster and even hot­ter than oth­ers. If you know for a fact that yours would burn at 10 hours, you should check it at 8–9 hours. The great thing about this recipe, is that you can put it on before you go to bed, and wake up to a great break­fast. Thanks for the ques­tion and Hap­py Crock­ing!

I made this for din­ner tonight & it turned out to be a huge dis­ap­point­ment. I used frozen green beans & less water than it called for, hop­ing that the beans wouldn’t be mush & expect­ing them to add some water as they thawed. The smoked sausage lost all of it’s fla­vor & the green beans were still mush. It’s real­ly too bad because I was look­ing for­ward to com­ing home to a good meal after work.

If you put the pota­toes and green beans in the bot­tom, then salt and pep­per them, add onion and water…then out the sausage on too, it shouldn’t lose it’s fla­vor since it’s not sub­merged. The veg­gies need the water but the sausage doesn’t. The juices will still drip down onto them. 🙂

DO NOT cut up the sausage. Leave in cas­ing that way it retains it’s fla­vor and juices. 🙂

I made this tonight. I fol­lowed the recipe but also placed 4 slices of raw bacon on top. It cooked up so nice­ly and tast­ed excel­lent! I used chick­en broth instead of water too. Yum. Thanks for the recipe!

This has been my favorite meal since I was a kid, and I’m a grand­ma now, so it’s been a LONG time to say the least. I’ve made it using water as well as using broth both with great results. I like lots of beans so I use a large bag of frozen. The thing I do to avoid mushy sausage is only add about 1/2 of it at first, sliced a lit­tle thin­ner than chunks. Then about 30–60 min­utes before serv­ing add the rest of the sausage to the pot so that it get heat­ed through. That way you… Read more »

Yum­mo!! I fol­lowed exactly…put veg­gies on bot­tom and sausage on top like anoth­er review­er said, and it was per­fect! It was done in 3 hours on high. I, too, added some left­over chick­en broth with the water, and then added a cou­ple TBSPs of chick­en bouil­lon gran­ules. Per­fect!! Thanks!! Remind­ed me of the fam­i­ly camp outs when I was lit­tle- big cast iron pot over fire with lots of the same ingre­di­ents 🙂
Oh- and I used turkey smoked sausage for a lighter touch and it was deli­cious

[…] It looks alot bet­ter than how it tast­ed – it was just very bland and I’m not sure how to fix it. I even used chick­en stock instead of water to try to give it some fla­vor, but it didn’t do much.

I made this last night and loved it! I used can green beans that were sea­soned with onions, red pep­pers, and gar­lic; and Hill­shi­er Farms smoked sausage. I did use chick­en broth instead of water and it gave the pota­toes a nice fla­vor. I also added a bag of real bacon pieces. Added the sausage with 1 hour left of cook­ing and it was per­fect! I cooked on high for 3–3 1/2 hrs and served with corn­bread. My hus­bands only com­pli­ant, not enough onions which I knew from the start but I don’t care for them! Hap­py crock­ing!

I was won­der­ing, the part where you said if you like snap in your green beans, add 45 min to 1 hour, do you do this before or after you add the sausage?

Samantha McKnight

My mom has made green beans and pota­toes for years, I was pleased to come across this recipe that adds sausage to it, My mom uses water but she adds ham fla­vor­ing to it. I have made them using beef fla­vor­ing, I think I will try this using beef broth and maybe a more fla­vor­ful smoked sausage, like Ital­ian or spicy, that way if it does lose fla­vor, it will still have some! Cant wait to try it!

I made this and the green beans turned to mush. Still tast­ed great, but I’m just won­der­ing what went wrong?

Cindy
Guest

I’m cook­ing this right now but couldn’t tell from the recipe if I put the sausage in the last hour and cook it to or just after the veg­ies have cooked and then top with the sausage and not cook. Maybe brown­ing the sausage and then adding it would keep the sausage from loos­ing it’s taste. Hope I get an answer soon.…I only have 45 min­utes left cook­ing the veg­ies

April

I am work­ing on this recipe right now! Quick question.…do you cook the sausage on it’s own before you put it into the crock pot, or just let it cook in the pot? Thank you so much!

Made for din­ner last night. My fam­i­ly loved it. After read­ing all com­ments this is how I changed it up a lit­tle. I also used chicked broth instead of water. I let it cook on high for 2 hrs then removed 1/2 of liq­uid. Put Hill­shire Farms Smoked sausage whole not sliced on top with bacon pieces. Let cook anoth­er hour. By remov­ing half the liq­uid the fla­vor from the sausage and bacon absorbed into every­thing. It smelled so good in the house while cook­ing. Served with corn bread.

Hel­lo! I made this recipe and made it a lit­tle dif­fer­ent and it turned out AWESOME! My hus­band hates green beans and I actu­al­ly got him to eat them! This is what I did: 1. Added all the ingre­di­ents list­ed (except the kiel­basa). 2. Added 2 cans of chick­en broth instead of water! 3. Let cook for 4 hours stir­ring occa­sion­al­ly. 4. Added 6 table spoons of pep­per (we love it) about 3 hours in. 5. Cooked the kiel­basa in olive oil, gar­lic salt, pep­per, chilli pow­der, and basil for about 5 min­utes or until brown. 6.

This is one of my favorites and I make it in the crock pot or on the stove sim­mer­ing for about an hour. I do add a cou­ple table­spoons of car­away seed which gives it a nice fla­vor. I serve with spicy mus­tard and Lawry’s sea­soned salt on the table.

I made this today and it was awe­some! I used 3/4 of a bag of red skin pota­toes and 3 cans of green beans with the chick­en stock, I cooked it for 4.5 hours on low before adding the meat. I used the smoked sausage and kiel­basa 1 hour before serv­ing. I was so hap­py with the out­come, most of my pota­toes were still in tacked and the fla­vors were great!!!! My fam­i­ly is fight­ing over the left­overs and ask­ing when I can make this again!! Thank You!!!

I’ve made a vari­a­tion of this before. The dif­fer­ence is that I use fresh green beans sauteed with some chopped bacon. Chop about 4–5 slices of bacon into 1 in pieces and saute about 3 min on high. Add green beans and cook anoth­er 5 min, stir­ring fre­quent­ly. Add both to the crock pot with pota­toes and broth, onion and sea­son­ing. Add sausage whole 1 hr before serv­ing. A bay leaf on the top kicks the fla­vor up a bit if desired. Don’t skimp on the pep­per. This was adapt­ed from a dutch oven camp­fire recipe that is tra­di­tion­al in… Read more »

I made this today and it was great! There were a few lit­tle adjust­ments that I made, but for the most part I stuck to the direc­tions pro­vid­ed. For instance, I added chopped baby bel­la mush­rooms in with fresh farm­ers mar­ket green beans about an hour and a half before the stew was ready. Also, some fresh minced gar­lic went in at the start and sim­mered all day with a tad of cayenne sprin­kled in. I used chick­en broth instead of water, super yum­my! Instead of mix­ing every­thing I lay­ered it all, start­ing with the pota­toes at the bot­tom and… Read more »

Turned out deli­cious for us! I used a small bag of red/new pota­toes (with skin) and i sliced them into halves or quar­ters. I did use the chick­en broth. Added the smoked beef sausage one hour before serv­ing. It was a hit! The only thing miss­ing was some sweet corn­bread!

This was so won­der­ful! I used chick­en broth! I drained some of the broth out before I put the smoked turkey sausage on and only for about 40 min­utes. The sausage wasn’t real­ly sit­ting in the water so it still had great fla­vor. I actu­al­ly made it the night before and put it on at lunch. I made the Red Lob­ster gar­lic cheese bis­cuits with it. It made for a won­der­ful din­ner! I give this a 10/10!
