Over high heat, sauté the pork roast pieces in olive or grapeseed oil until browned, turning as needed. Remove from the pan, and set aside.
Remove casings from sausage links, and slice meat into half inch rounds. In same pan, brown the sausage pieces on each side, and set aside. There is no need to cook them through.
