Boiling or simmering raw sausage links
I'm thinking Italian or just plain pork. But I'm wondering how long it takes to boil them. I don't want to make them with the beans. I don't care about browning them either. How they look added to the bean mix doesn't mean much. I am thinking about making the beans by alone, then adding the boiled sausage afterwards along with some onion and bell pepper and garlic and parsley and cut up roma tomatoes, etc., sauteed in olive oil. It sounds like a stupid question and maybe it is, but I think boiling the sausage might reduce some of the fat, but not all the flavor. Again, I don't care about browning the sausage for this recipe, just how long to boil or simmer. I have no thermometer and have no intention of buying one. Thanks.
