How to Cook Polish Sausage?

Do you remember the last time you had a juicy mouthful of Polish sausage?

Possibly you have never learned how to cook Polish sausage. If it has been a long time since you have made them or if you haven’t tried to cook them before, maybe you should think about making some this week. There are lots of different ways to prepare these link sausages. All of the various options are easy to make at home. If you’ve certainly not tried cooking Polish sausage, read on. We’re going to tell you the easiest ways to prepare them. Let’s get started.

How to Cook Polish Sausage


  • 2 pounds of Polish sausage
  • 1 white onion cut into quarters
  • 1 teaspoon marjoram can be added, but it is optional
  • 1/2 of a bay leaf
  • About 1/2 of a handful of whole, black peppercorns
  • One or two smashed garlic cloves depending on how much you like garlic
  • A few mustard seeds


  • Place the Polish sausage in the pot. Here is a pro tip: The pot should be wide and somewhat shallow because you will not be adding a lot of water like you would if you were boiling noodles.
  • Add your onion, peppercorns, garlic cloves, marjoram if you choose to and half a bay leaf. The spices will add extra flavour to the Polish sausage in the event some flavour happens to escape through the casing.
  • Cover the pot, bring it to a simmer and keep it on the low-heat simmer for 50 to 60 minutes. Pro tip: Take away from heat early if parts of the case begin to split from cooking.
  • Any attempt to speed up the cooking process by letting the water simmer too high or boil will cause the meat to burst open, which I consider a failure.
  • Do not prick the sausage with a fork thinking the flavoured water will infuse the meat. It will only cause it to dry out. After the hour of cooking is finished, you can turn the water off and let the meat rest. It is best to let it cool in the cooking liquid.
  • The final product should come out plump with no brown colour. It will be plump, juicy and delicious.

So, this is the way you can cook Polish sausages. They will give you a hearty, satisfying meal. You can usually have dinner on the table in about an hour or less.
