Serving: 6
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 5 hours 30 minutes
Total Time 5 hours 45 minutes
Servings 6


  • 12 thin beef sausages, raw
  • 1 large brown onion, sliced
  • 1 large green apple, cored & sliced (skin left on)
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 80g concentrated tomato paste
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 2 T Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp curry powder
  • 1 T brown sugar


  • Add sliced onions to slow cooker and arrange sausages on top of onion, add apple slices on top of sausages
  • Combine all other ingredients and pour over
  • Cook on low for 5-6hrs
  • Serve with creamy mashed potato and steamed veg


  • If your slow cooker runs hotter the liquid may reduce so you can always double it or add an extra ½ cup of water during cooking
  • If the sauce isn’t as thick as you would like at the end it can easily be thickened by adding a slurry of 1T cornflour and 1T water and mix through and allow to thicken 15-20mins at end of cooking time

  1. Recipe works fantastic. I add garlic, because we LOVE garlic. I also add 1tps of cornflour at the start. I think it cooks down the flour taste if added from the beginning, however, not necessary at all. Add water if too thick.

    I have always made the packet mix version of this in the oven and always omitted the apple. We love it. Made this version and Slow Cooked is soooo much more. I still omitted the Apple but it’s just even more amazing. I am never making this in the oven again. Absolutely fantastic. I didn’t need to thicken at the end as it was just perfect. Can’t wait for leftovers tomorrow lunchtime. ??

    I always make this in the oven using a packet mix. Never again, the flavours are amazing and the sausages are sooo tasty done this way, with this recipe. I didn’t add the apple nor did I thicken the sauce at the end as it was just perfect. Can’t wait for leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

  4. Cooked this tonight and WOW such nice flavours. Lots of leftovers which I like. Thank you for this.

  5. Made this & it was absolutely delicious. It was made with all ingredients & I thought the apples really added to the flavour. Will definitely will make again.

  6. Yum! Can’t say I’ve ever had Devilled Sausages before but know I’d never use a packet mix after tasting this! Didn’t thicken it up but could probably have done so. Used two packets of Woollies herb n garlic sausages so 16 in total so plenty of leftovers ?

  7. I made a double batch of this for lunch today and just as well I did because my 23 yo son went back for third helpings and then had it again for dinner. I added a can of chick peas and some veg (carrot, celery, broccoli florets and diced stalk and spinach). So yummy.

  8. Was a lovely dish. I used thicker sausages so probably should’ve doubled the sauce ingredients. I’d definitely make it again and probably thicken the sauce.
    The family enjoyed it ?

  9. I really enjoyed this. I omitted the apple & brown sugar to make it low carb & subbed in 1 1/2 tsp of stevia. Lots of sauce left over!
