Potato Kielbasa Skillet Tips
Is kielbasa already cooked?
Yes, kielbasa is already cooked. When you purchase kielbasa in the grocery store, it has already been smoked and pre-cooked. When you use it in recipes, all you need to do is heat it back up and/or brown it for the dish you’re making.
How do you know when kielbasa is done?
Kielbasa is perfectly cooked when it registers between 168°F and 174°F on a meat thermometer.
