‘Great Sauces Transform Good Food into Gourmet’
Oil and water
Oil and water are friends with this quick, easy method for cooking sausage links. First you braise it with bubbling water. It cooks the links through while preserving the moisture and juiciness. Once the water is evaporated, the oil left in the pan sizzles them to a rich golden brown, sealing in the juices. Perfect breakfast sausage links with minimal tending. You can concentrate on flipping pancakes or whipping the omelet.
Recipe: Braise and Brown Sausage
Prep Time: 1 Minutes | Cook Time: 14 Minutes | Yield: 4 Servings | Level: Easy
Special Equipment – large skillet
2 On medium-high heat, bring the water to a boil. Cook for 4-5 minutes. Using tongs, turn over the sausages without piercing them. Cook for 4-5 minutes until all the water has evaporated.
3 Continue to fry the sausages, 1 minute on each side until they are brown. Remove to a serving plate.
Amount of water will vary depending on the size of the pan. Fill to 1/4-inch deep.
Larger sausages can also be cooked with this method but increase the amount of water to 1/2-inch and allow to cook longer.
Excellent breakfast dish with pancakes, waffles, omelets, and French toast.
- Exchange pork for chicken sausages.
