How To Cook Central Market Signature Sausages
At Central Market, we make our sausage fresh in-store every day from high-quality cuts of pork, beef and chicken, flavoring it with a wide array of spices, herbs, cheeses, vegetables and other tasty tidbits. Look for up to 20 varieties on any given day.
Because we take such care in making them, we hope you’ll take as much care in cooking them. Here are some tips to help you do that.
The key to successful sausage grilling is to begin the cooking process in a pan before moving to the grill. Cover the bottom of a large sauté pan with approximately 1/4 cup of water and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Place sausage links in the pan and begin to cook over medium to medium-high heat, turning the sausage once the water reduces, approximately 6-10 minutes. When the original amount of water and oil has diminished, add an additional 1/4 cup water and 1 tablespoon of oil and repeat the process.
Move the sausage to a clean, oiled grill or a lightly-oiled sheet of aluminum foil and begin grilling over medium to medium-high heat for 12-15 minutes, turning frequently. To keep the sausage warm, wrap it in foil and move to a cooler section of the grill. Do not place it in the oven; this will cause the sausage to shrink. Use tongs to turn the sausage, being careful not to pierce the casing.
