There are many ways to cook deer sausage. You may simply fry them with a bit of onions on a skillet or you may grill deer sausage. Here are a few ways to cook deer sausage.
Using a Skillet
Take a skillet and set it on medium heat. Let it remain for about ten or fifteen minutes.
Add about one eighth cup of virgin olive oil and let it simmer just for a few seconds. Add the deer sausage and shake the skillet a little to ensure that the sausages don’t stick. Once the entire sausage gets coated with a little oil, they won’t stick.
You need to cook the sausage for about ten minutes. Meanwhile, peel an onion, cut it into half and slice it. Don’t chop the onions and certainly don’t mince them. Use about half an onion for two sausages. At the tenth minute or sometime around that, add the onions.
Ensure the onions don’t get stuck to the skillet. Add a tinge of olive oil over the sausages and the onions. Stir them for a while and you can add some wine if you so desire. If you do add wine, opt for white wine. Allow the deer sausage to cook for another fifteen minutes and you are done.
You can use a food thermometer to measure the temperature inside the sausage. If it reads 160 degrees F, a notch above or less, then the sausage is cooked.
Grilling Deer Sausage
Now, let us talk about grilled deer sausage. Frying sausage in a skillet appears simple and may not be that enticing. Grilled sausage is however a different proposition. Here’s how you can cook deer sausage on a grill.
You should preheat your grill to about 400 degrees F. Set the grill at about medium-high. As the grill starts to get heated up, you should brush the grates of the grill with a bit of olive oil.
Take a bit of olive oil and brush it on the deer sausage. Like the aforementioned approach, about one eighth of a cup of olive oil should be enough for the grates and the sausages.
Once the grill is heated up, place the sausages and let them cook for about five minutes. You should turn the sausages once at around three minutes. After five minutes, lower the temperature. Set the grill to medium-low till it attains 300 degrees F. Now close the lid of the grill and let the sausages get grilled for twenty minutes.
Measure the temperature of at least one sausage and check if it reads 160 degrees F. If they do, then take the sausages off the grill and allow them to cool down for a couple of minutes before serving them.
