It's been ages I want to make homemade sausage. Unfortunately, it is not easy to find sausage casing here *or I dunno where to buy it*, until few days ago, my hubby found it at a butcher store.
This is my second attempt to make homemade sausage. My first attempt, I used pork leg without casing. And, yesterday, I used pork butt with casing. For some reason, I like pork leg more than pork butt (the original recipe is using pork shoulder). The sausage texture is little bit different. Both are good tho :).
And for me there is nothing best than a homemade sausage :)
3 lbs pork shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes (Belzy -- choose the pork with 85% fat to avoid dry sausage)
4 tsps crushed fennel
2 tsps ground coriander
2 tsps crushed red chilli flakes
1 tbsp kosher salt
1 tsps fresh ground blackpepper
Toss together pork with spices and salt in a large bowl or ziplock bag. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Using a 1/4-inch meat grinder, grind the pork mixture. It's ready to use.
NOTE: if you use ground meat, combine the spices with 2 tbsps water first, then toss the ground meat with spices mixture.
