1. Set the Cuisinart® Multicooker to Brown/
Sauté at 400°F. Cooking in batches,
add about ⅓ of the sausages to the hot
cooking pot, browning each batch for
about 8 minutes. You really want to get the
sausages nice and brown to bring out the
great flavors. This step should take about
20 to 22 minutes in total.
2. Once the sausages are browned, put all into
the pot and reduce the heat to 350°F. Add
the oil. Once oil is hot, add the onions and
cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until softened and
translucent – this brings out the sweetness
of the onions, which adds to the dish.
3. Raise the heat again to 425°F and add the
wine. Bring the wine to a boil and let cook
until reduced by about two thirds, stirring
4. Finally, reduce the heat down to a simmer,
to about 300°F, and stir in the Dijon.
Let simmer, until completely coated and
slightly thickened.
5. Garnish with parsley and serve.
