Unless You Cook Your Sausages For Half An Hour, You’re Wrong
Australia Day is coming up this week, guys - and with that comes a lot of responsibility.
You need to ensure your living your most patriotic self come January 26 - and more than likely that will involve the cooking - and consequent eating - of snags.
A disturbing finding has come to light, involving sausages and the way you cook them.
Website, thewhychef.com, has theorised that most people aren’t allowing their sausages to live up to their full potential, because we’re not doing them justice while we cook them.
While many of us stick our sausages under the grill, bake them or fry them quickly on a sizzling barbecue, there may in fact be a better way, reports The Sun.
It’s important to note that cooking sausages on a pan or a BBQ or baking them isn’t WRONG - you could just be doing it better, that’s all.
So, what’s the right way?
For an extra-delicious batch of snags, the website recommends frying sausages in a pan on a low heat with a knob of unsalted butter for 30 minutes.
Apparently, this method gives extra flavour and texture. Butter complements sausage fat better than oil as well as lubricating the pan — but unsalted should be used, otherwise the salt will crystallise and collect in your pan.
The BIG no no, is refrain from ramping up the heat and cooking them quickly, because, “the higher the heat, the less the fat renders, the faster the skins burn, and the less likely you are to have a cooked centre before the outer edges start to get tough,” TheWhyChef.com revealed.
