ingredients

2 1/2 pounds ground pork (shoulder cut)
2 1/2 pounds ground beef (brisket, round, or sirloin)
2 teaspoons dried sage
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons anise seed
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 dash salt
1 dash ground black pepper

directions

Mix the meats with the spices.

For sausage links, attach 2 1/4-inch sausage casings to the stuffer nozzle on a hand meat grinder. Stuff the casings to the desired length, cut the links, and secure the ends with string.

Barbecue at 225 degrees F for 2 hours or slow-smoke at 185 degrees F for 4 hours.

For sausage patties, form the meat mixture into a roll and cover with wax paper. Slice the roll into patties and peel off the wax paper. Patties can be fried or grilled.

REVIEW: recipe rating
We've been making our own sausage lately and just tried this one. The flavors are good but I think I would have preferred either all pork or a higher ratio of pork to beef. I just find that spicy sausage tastes better to me when it's pork not beef.
