Italian Style Pork Sausage

This is a coarsely ground fresh sausage which is normally pan-fried or broiled. The most popular style is broiled in a large spiral roll (snail like) on a grill until tender.

Ingredients

  • 10 lbs. lean pork trimmings (65% lean)
  • (4 3/4 Tbs.) 2.4 oz. salt
  • (2 1/2 Tbs.) 0.4 oz. fennel seed (anise may be substituted)
  • (2 Tbs.) 0.4 oz. crushed red pepper
  • (1 Tbs.) 0.2 oz. ground black pepper
  • (1 Tbs.) 0.2 oz. white pepper

  • (1 1/4 Tbs.) 0.2 oz. coriander (optional)

Mix the seasonings thoroughly with the trimmings. Grind the pork trimmings through a 1/4-inch or 3/8-inch plate. Stuff in natural hog casings or size 30 to 36 collagen casings. Hang overnight in 38F refrigeration for spices to marinate.
