Heat the oil in a large frying or sauté pan over a medium-high heat. Chop the sausages into chunks; you should get 4 or 5 pieces from each. Add to the pan and fry, stirring regularly, for 7-8 minutes until golden all over. Remove and set aside, leaving the oil behind.
Lower the heat to medium and add the onion and garlic to the pan with a pinch of salt. Fry, stirring regularly, for 7-8 minutes until softened, then stir in the oregano and fry for 1 minute more.
Stir in the tomatoes and stock, bring to a gentle simmer, then return the sausages to the pan and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in the beans and simmer for another 10 minutes until thick and saucy. The sausages should be cooked through with no pink meat. Season and serve with crusty bread and a green salad, if liked
Add ½ tsp sweet smoked paprika along with the oregano to give the stew a slightly smoky flavour.
