How do you cook fresh polish sausage?

How do you cook fresh polish sausage? My hubby's family from Chicago
sent us some fresh polish sausage. They always boil it first then pan
fry. Wouldn't the boiling take alot of the flavor out? Is this the correct
way to cook the sausage? Don't get me wrong it has alway been wonderful
can't get this good of fresh polish sausage in kc, just wondering if this is the
best way to cook it.

That's the way I learned to cook it also. I'm very careful not to puncture the casing. Of course, I've boiled it and then tossed it on the grill...

Place that makes it

I called the place that makes this fresh polish sausage. They just told me the way I fixed it was right. They told me to boil it. I feel the same way you do. When they told me it was okay made me wonder why I even called.

I usually put some water in the skillet to get it started and by the time the water evaporates, the sausages are heated thru and then just let them brown to your liking.

Hmm, I've never boiled them before putting on the grill, just make sure the heat is med-low to med. and maybe turn up a little to brown if needed.

I don't boil. I dont' recall that my Polish relatives boiled, either. I pan fry them over low heat, or grill them over medium heat.

Here are a couple of nice links from a few weeks ago, on the Weber kettle rotisserie. Ambrosia!

You know, just from my experiences with Czech sausages, I think it really depends on the type of sausage. Some hold up better to pre-boiling than others.

Oh man, That picture makes my mouth water. From the looks of the coals it's about 40 minutes to dinner?

On closer look I see a few briquettes on the floor of the kettle and smaller briquettes or wood chunks in the drip pan. Can you explain your set up a little?

We don't boil.

What we do is put the sausages in a frying pan with a quarter to half inch of water, cover and let simmer/low boil for half an hour or so.

Then we take off the cover, turn up the heat a tad, and let the water evaporate.

Then let the sausages brown.

This was the way a former roomies grandmother from Poland make them, and they always turned out fine.
