Hawaiin Style Farmer Sausage

Since I saw this recipe featured on Winkler Meats Instagram page this week, it seemed like a good time to dust it off and re-publish it.

We rather like farmer sausage around here and always have some on hand.  Farmer sausage is a smoked pork sausage; the smoky flavour is a great addition to soups and casseroles.  But if you aren't familiar with this particular sausage, I'm sure your favorite sausage would work with this dish as well.
  • 1 ring farmer sausage (about 1 1/2 pounds), sliced in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 green pepper, cut in chunks
  • 1 red pepper, cut in chunks
  • 1 large can diced tomatoes (796 ml / 28 oz)
  • 1 can pineapple chunks or tidbits (398 ml / 14 oz), drain and reserve juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  1.  Stir fry farmer sausage for several minutes.
  2.  Add celery, onions, and peppers and cook until tendercrisp.
  3. Add tomatoes, pineapple, seasonings, sugar and soy sauce.  Simmer 5 minutes.
  4. Blend cornstarch with reserved pineapple juice. Add to simmering sausage dish and cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Serve on a bed of rice.

Serves 6.


  1. Yum! Hubby would love this. I'm giving this one a bookmark! You all have the best recipes!


  2. yummm, farmer sausage is always a treat. i particularly enjoy it plain on triscuts so, i can honestly say i've never, ever thought to cook with it!

    now the possibilities seem endless. thanks for opening my eyes ;)

  3. That really sounds good. I need to pick up some sausage this week.

  4. Lecker!Ich habe hunger bekommen...delicioso!Busi.Luciene.

  5. That looks absolutely wonderful. I'm sure it will be liked here very much.
    Have a great day.

  6. I make something like this and we love it.

  7. I live in Ontario and have never seen anything called Farmer's Sausage but from the pics it almost looks like it could be the same as kielbassa or those double smoked sausages that we have here. Is the farmer's sausage that you refer to already cooked or is it more like an italian sausage that requires cooking?

    1. You can get Farmer's sausage at Costco...just bought mine last day 'cause I like the looking for how to cook it properly and in a recipe that doesn't involve cheese or gravy.

  8. Tracey...Farmer sausage is a smoked (not cooked) pork sausage. If it is not readily available in your area, substitute with smoked kielbasa. I'm sure your double smoked sausages would be perfect!

  9. My mom makes this all the time, especially when there is a large crowd of us kids around. It tastes soooo good.

  10. Guess what will be simmering in my oven for tonight..Yup, I've got all the ingredients..Way to go.
    There will be extra's to feed the big ones that pop out on the weekend.

  11. mmmm thanks Hubby and I were trying to decide what to do with our sausages, so going to try this recipie yaya thanks... sue

  12. Oh my! This is such a lovely dish! Can't wait to try it out.

  13. This sausage dish looks yummy and delicious!

  14. My this looks delicious! My family will love it.

  15. I made this for Family Day yesterday - wow, was it delicious! Used some Winkler Manitoba sausage we picked up on our last trip out there. Thanks for a new favourite.

  16. I made this dish tonight for dinner. It was a hit. I doubled the recipe but didn't double the pineapple as our can was larger than the one the recipe called for. My oldest daughter came home, looked at the pot and decided it needed more pineapple, so she snuck another can into it. I used smoked kielbasa. Is Farmer sausage the same as Trail Bologna?

  17. I make this recipe often. Thankyou so much! My version is to use fresh tomatoes, carrots, mushrooms and even bits of kale. I like to serve it over Quinoa. I sometimes use Italian sausages.
