Kolbasz is a popular Hungarian
sausage, and is similar to Polish kielbasa
The fat links are stuffed with finely ground pork, and/or beef and are strongly seasoned with paprika, garlic, pepper, cloves, and pimento. The links are hung for a day or two before smoking.
Being smoked sausages, kolbasz are pre-cooked when sold, however they are usually re-heated under a grill before serving.
