Making your Chorizo Sausage
Any meat can be used, though Pork is the more usual.
Many people use game birds, as these are also very suitable.
A good combination to try is 1 part Beef to 2 parts Pork.
This is also a good blend to add to your own home-made meatballs.
Chop the meat to a fairly fine consistency- if using Sausage skins/casings, follow the instructions given with them.
You are aiming for a good ‘bite’ to the meat, but nothing too lumpy.
To every 1 Kilo (2 LB) meat, allow 200g of The Spiceworks full Chorizo spice blend.
This combination will give a medium to warm flavour.
For those who like a hotter bite, increase the Chorizo blend to 300g per 1 Kilo of meat.
Mix all of the ingredients together (meat, Chorizo spice blend) and allow to stand in the fridge for a minimum of 24 hours for best results.
This gives the herbs and spices time to impart their unique flavours into the meat.
You may, if desired, add 2 Tablespoons of Vinegar to the mix at this stage.
This can be any Vinegar of your choice, Apple or wine Vinegar is suitable.
Use as little oil as possible when frying.
Just lightly smear the pan with oil using your fingers, a brush or a tissue.
Fry the mix in a pan until well cooked.
You may add your other favourite ingredients at this stage, such as mashed Pinto Beans, or fry with eggs to make Burritos.
If making traditional English Sausages using skins/ casing, then simply pack the required amount into the skins and fry in the normal way.
Any uncooked mix that you have will keep for several weeks if placed in a sealed container in the fridge.
