Is It Ok For Sausages To Be A Little Pink?
Have you ever been in a case that you cooked sausages but you saw it was a little pink inside? So is it OK for sausages to be a little pink? Let me explain that.
Normally, Polish sausage is completely cooked when pathogenic bacteria are killed and it is safe to eat. As you know, sausages are made from meat that has been minced. That is why cooked sausages sometimes have a little bit of pinkish color internally.
It is hard to say that Polish sausages are cooked by looking through internal colors. Don’t let color put you off. Therefore, I recommend you to have a probe thermometer.
