How do you cook merguez sausages?

Whenever I cook merguez sausages (sauté in pan for 2 minutes on each side until brown all over), they come out chewier than I would like. Is that just how merguez is? Am I cooking it too long? Should just stick to browning one side? Because merguez is red in color, I find it difficult to know when it's cooked, so perhaps I've been erring on the side of cooking too long?

See Clifford A. Wright recipe for these....he's a reliable source on middle eastern cooking and recommends either boiling or combination of boiling and grilling.
Maybe one or both of those methods will give you better results.
