This black bean and sausage stew is so delicious and it’s crazy how flavorful it is with only 20 minutes in an instant pot.
I was watching Somebody Feed Phil on Netflix. He was in Brazil and he was eating a dish called feijoada. It’s a classic dish from Brazil and typically uses, let’s say, less used ingredients like pigs ears and feet.
I went the sausage route. And I also used canned black beans because they were recently on sale at my store for .25 cents.
Can I make black bean and sausage stew on my stove top?
If you don’t have an Instant Pot, not to worry. You could make it just as easily in a stock pot on your stove, and maybe simmer 30 minutes total.
Black Bean and Sausage Stew
This recipe was created after watching a t.v. show about Brazil. Feijoada is a classic black bean dish and while this is probably no where near authentic, it’s delicious!
- 8 ounces turkey sausage
- 2 slices center cut bacon chopped
- 2 tbsp garlic
- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- 1.5 cups chicken broth
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
- 3 cups black beans canned and drained
Set instant pot on saute. Add the bacon and garlic, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the bacon starts to brown. Add in tomato paste and cook 2 minutes.
Add in remaining ingredients. Set on high pressure for 20 minutes.
It took about 35 minutes from beginning to end for the instant pot to release the pressure after cooking.
I used Jennie-O turkey garlic sausage. On #teamgreen 1/2 cup is 3 points, on #teamblue and #teampurple it is only ONE POINT. You’re welcome!

I made this 1/2 cup serving because with a side of rice it was the perfect amount of food. It’s so flavorful and delicious, and I am trying to think of ways to use it up. I am thinking huevos rancheros or enchiladas?
If you love black beans, you need to try this black bean dip – perfect for family gatherings.
It’s funny because if I am not Bizzy in my Kitchen then I am either watching t.v. shows about it or reading cookbooks. So many recipes, so little time!
Until next time, be well!
