Why fry sausage in the pan on the stove?

➡️ Have you ever wondered why you fry your sausage in a pan on the stove instead of just throwing them on a grill like a traditional sausage? I was curious to find out why frying sausage is better than grilling it.

➡️ I figured that frying would give the sausage a very crispy skin, while grilling would give it a softer, slightly chewier skin. As a result, frying sausage in the pan is the best way to get a delicious sear on the surface while keeping the inside juicy and flavorful.

How long to cook Italian sausage on the stove?

➡️ When it comes to cooking Italian sausage, there are a lot of different ways to go about it. Some people like to cook it on the stove, and others like to throw it on the grill. No matter which method you prefer, it’s important to know how long you need to cook Italian sausage on the stove to get it to the right temperature so that it’s not raw, but not too overdone.

➡️ The first step is to preheat the oil to medium-high, then add the Italian sausage to the pan and reduce the temperature to medium-low (2-3 minutes.) Second, fry the sausage until slightly brown on the bottom side, this takes usually 1-2 minutes (thin sausages) or 3-4 minutes (thick sausages). Third, flip the sausage and fry it evenly brown for 2-3 minutes or so. In conclusion, you need about 10 minutes to cook Italian sausage on the stove.

What is Italian sausage?

➡️ Italian sausage is made from ground pork, sometimes beef or both, that has been seasoned with a blend of herbs and spices and stuffed into a natural casing. The casing is used to keep the meat inside the sausage, which is then cooked and eaten as it is. Sometimes, the meat is then removed from the casing and cooked separately.

➡️ You can find a variety of Italian sausage varieties, including hot dog or frankfurter-style sausages. Most Italian sausage is eaten as a meat dish on its own, usually fried or grilled, but you can also find it in different sauces, including marinara sauce, which is great for using up leftovers.

➡️ It is very important to keep in mind that Italian sausage is not cured but is cooked raw!

PRO Tips For The Pan-Fried Italian Sausage Recipe

➡️ Cooking fresh sausage is very easy for most people with little experience in the kitchen. However, even the most simple cooking skills have to be learned, so this video and tutorial are aimed at people without previous experience in preparing various food recipes including fresh sausage.

➡️ There are just several cooking tips to keep in mind when frying fresh sausages on the stove, not just Italian, but of any kind.

  • put enough oil or lard in the pan to avoid breaking up the skin and /or burning the sausages
  • fry the sausages over low-medium temperature because the very high will lead certainly to the breaking of the sausage skin
  • don’t stick the fresh sausage with a fork or knife because the skin will break up during frying
  • don’t fry the sausage excessively, usually, they need to roast for just 1-2 minutes on a side in the hot oil
  • don’t put the sausage in the cold oil because the skin will soak it up and will soften and, later, will break
  • serve the fried sausage while it’s still warm to enjoy the hot flavored juice from inside, after cooling the taste won’t be so intense

➡️ Fried fresh sausages can be served in different ways. Often, I like to eat fried sausage just with mustard and fresh bread. Ketchup or horseradish sauce is also an excellent dipping sauce for fried Italian sausages!

➡️ Other times, I like to serve fried sausages along with various side dishes. Some of the most-used side dishes in my kitchen are creamy mashed potatoes, French fries, creamed spinach, braised green peas, Hungarian yellow bean stew, and many more. However, you can serve the fried sausage with any side dish you like because I can’t imagine one that won’t fit this food.

➡️ As for the best drinks that fit the fried fresh sausages, a cold beer would be my first choice. Nevertheless, depending on the side dish you are serving next to the sausages, a glass of quality white wine or even red wine would be also a good choice.

➡️ Enjoy frying Italian sausage in the pan from scratch!
