Worst Cook Ever--I have a question about pork

wurstcook | Jan 29, 2013 01:27 AM

Okay, as mentioned above, I am the Worst Cook Ever. I decided to make a Bolognese sauce tonight and I was really hungry and tired so didn't look up directions...

Long story short, I threw in the mirepoix first, followed by the beef, and lastly the pork sausages (duh). I let them cook until the beef was done, but the sausages were far from cooked. Then I added all the liquids, boiled for a couple of minutes and then simmered for about an hour and a half.

My question is: will I get trichinosis, or was the pork I just ate cooked enough to do the job?
