I don’t know how people feel about sausages in particular but I do know having a piece done well is never a bad thing. Sausages should be browned with a nice tan, but not burned; when you sink your teeth into a one, it should be toasty but not shrivelled, succulent and not dry. This morning, I’ve just discovered the best way to cook sausages, so that you get that crispy exterior enveloping juicy mince. Here’s how I did it:
- Place your sausages into a pot with a small drizzle of oil.
- Turn up the heat to medium and put the lid on, keeping any steam released within the pot.
- Let the sausages fry about by rolling them about in the pot with the lid still on. Check occasionally.
- Once the sausages are nicely browned, turn down the heat to the lowest setting and let them steam slowly for a couple of brief minutes before serving.
Remember, crispy yet juicy.
