Boerewors, South African Style BBQ Sausage, 1 lb
Boerewors sausage is perfect for the barbecue grill, to pan fry or you can roast it in the oven.

To Pan Fry – Place 1 tablespoon of olive oil in skillet and put on low heat, place sausage in skillet and cook for approx 10 minutes each side, add more olive oil as needed.
To Roast in Oven – Turn on oven and heat to 325. Place sausage in heatproof dish that allows the sausage room to expand during cooking so all the coils cook evenly and drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil over sausage. Do not cover. Put in oven. Turn sausage over after 10 minutes. Continue cooking for another 10 minutes. Check for doneness. Cook for additional 10 minutes if necessary.
Cooking too long causes the sausage to be dry. Turn with tongs and do not pierce with fork during cooking as this releases much of the moisture in the sausage Do not boil.
