How Long to Boil Fresh Kielbasa
Fresh kielbasa takes about 30 minutes to boil. Boiling Polish sausage is the simplest way to cook it, and the result is plump, juicy kielbasa. You can also add cabbage to the water, which will lend a nice flavor to both and give you a cooked side dish at the same time you're cooking your kielbasa. To check for doneness, you can use a meat thermometer: If the center of the sausage has reached 170 degrees, it's ready to eat. Kielbasa is often served with sauerkraut, but it's also good in a sausage sandwich with a bit of mustard or horseradish.
