How to cook Italian Sausage

729 Views 26 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Roll_Bones
This is the way that I cook Italian Sausage…it come moist and delicious,
with a crunchy outside…it’s delicious and fool proof.

First poke some holes in the sausage with a sharp knife, then place the
sausage in a skillet…I prefer cast iron, but any skillet will do.

Then put water in the skillet half way up on the sausage and bring to a boil.
turning the sausages occasionally. Simmer until all the water evaporates and
then after all the water evaporates drizzle a little olive oil in the pan and fry the sausages turning occasionally until they are nice and brown…this only takes about 5 minutes.

@ TK Gonna try your method tonight.
I failed. You must have a gas cooktop. Wound up splitting them to finish the job.

I put a bit much water in the pan. It boiled fine. After 7-8 minutes of boiling and a couple of turns I poured off the water and added the OO. I made the mistake of relying more on time than complete evaporation.

I'm sure the air fryer does a good job. But I would rather have a frying pan to clean than the tray and basket with the air fryer. In fact it is this very reason I seldom use my air fryer. Cleaning.
Have you tried? When cool remove the tray and basket. Set the basket in the tray. Add some dish soap and hot water. Forget about it until the next morning. Using a stiff brush clean the wire rack. Rinse and load in dishwasher.
