Q:

How long do you boil fresh kielbasa?

A:

According to the cooking instructions for fresh kielbasa posted on the website for Stanley Market's, there is very little boiling of the actual kielbasa during preparation. Instead the water is boiled in order to prepare the seasonings, and then the kielbasa is simmered in the seasoned water for the remaining cooking time.

  1. Season the water

    Add enough water to a saucepan to cover the kielbasa completely. Add spices and other seasonings to the water, and then bring the mixture to a rolling boil. Common seasonings include onions, garlic or beer.

  2. Add the kielbasa

    Add the kielbasa to the boiling water in the saucepan. The addition of the kielbasa lowers the water's temperature slightly. Wait until the water returns to a rolling boil, and then lower the temperature of the stove until the water is only at a simmer. Cook the kielbasa in the simmering water for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the sausages reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

  3. Continue cooking the kielbasa

    Continue cooking the kielbasa up to a 50-minute total cooking time in order to increase tenderness. Remove the saucepan from the heat source once it reaches the desired tenderness level, and then remove the sausages from the water immediately. This prevents further cooking, which can cause the flavor of the sausage to cook out.

    How long do you boil ribs?

    A:

    According to Global Post, if ribs are boiled, the meat should be simmered for approximately 45 minutes on medium-low heat. However, spareribs do not have to be boiled as a preparation for grilling or barbecuing the meat. Global Post explains that while boiling reduces grill time and increases the tenderness of the meat, much of ribs' flavors are lost during the boiling process.
