Boiling Sausage in Beer - safe for kids?

RSMBob | Oct 7, 2006 06:17 AM

A lot of recipes, or rather cooking methods I see for fresh polish sausage (kielbasa), italian sausage and bratwurst have boiling the sausage as at least part of the cooking method. For polish, some say just boil for 45 min and serbe...others say boil for 10-60 min, then braise or pan fry or grill to get a "crusty skin".

A number of the "boil" proponents say not to boil in water but to do so in beer or something else. The question I have is if boiling sausage in beer causes the sausage to become unsafe (from an alcohol or other standpoint) for minors.

Appreciate any advice on great ways to cook fresh polish, italian and bratwurst sausages.
