There’s just no other way to put it.
One just Can’t make sausage look good in a photo….but this one sure TASTED good!
I picked up the Lincoln, NE made Cetak sausage at the Hy-Vee in Omaha.

Brown the Sausages in a nob of butter in a Lodge Cast Iron pan.
(I used the 5 qt. Dutch Oven.)
Remove the sausages when browned.
Throw 1 sliced onion in with more oil if needed. (I used bacon grease.)
Add 1 sliced apple and a spoonful of brown sugar. Cook for a bit. Remove apples.
Add a Tablespoon of flour and brown a minute.
Deglaze with 1/2 cup Beef Broth (I use Better Than Bouillion)
and 1/2 Cup Apple Juice (I use Simply Apple or local fresh cider.)
Put the Sausage and Apples back in.
Season.
Let it simmer for 30 minutes or so with the lid on.

In the meantime, think about how you want to serve it.
On a bun? Take the lid off and let more liquid evaporate.
On Mashed Potatoes? Get peeling.
On Noodles? Start the water boiling.
On Rice? In a Salad? With a Vegetable?
Do that while it simmers. And smells wonderful.
Then eat. It WAS good!
