Homemade Pork Sausage Recipe


4 lb lean pork
2 lb pork fat (from the butcher)
3-1/2 tsp salt
6 tsp sage
3 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1-1/2 tsp white sugar
1/4 tsp ground cloves

2/3 cup cold water
1/4 cup hot sauce, (or to taste)

Thoroughly chill meat and fat. Using a 1/2 inch cutting blade, run the pork and pork fat separately through the meat grinder and chill again.

Combine all seasonings. Mix the seasonings into the chilled meat and then put through the grinder with a 1/8 inch cutting plate. Mix meat and fat in a bowl and add just enough water to make a soft "dough." Stuff into casings and take care to avoid air bubbles.


1-1/2 yards large sausage casing
4 lbs lean fresh pork
3 lb pork fat (from the butcher)
3 TBS garlic, minced
2 TBS kosher salt
1 TBS paprika
5 tsp hickory Liquid Smoke
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp ground bay leaf
1/4 tsp sage
1/8 tsp homemade cayenne pepper, or to taste
1/8 tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp mace
1/8 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp thyme

Soak the sausage casing in cold water for about 1 hour to soften and loosen the salt. (Casings are packaged with LOTS of salt).

After an hour, remove from water and cut into 3 pieces then place the narrow end of sausage stuffer into casing. Place wide end against faucet and run cold water through casing to remove any salt.

Cut the pork and fat into chunks about 1/2" across and pass once through meat grinder.

In a large bowl, combine the pork & fat with all other ingredients and mix well. (Use a wooden spoon or your clean hands). Cut the casings into 26" pieces and stuff.

HOW TO STUFF A SAUSAGE: Tie a knot in each casing about 2 inches from end. Put the open end on sausage stuffer and slide to about 1" from wide end. Push the remainder of casing onto the stuffer until the top touches the knot. (It should look like an accordion)

Fit the stuffer onto meat grinder and follow instructions that came with the appliance. Stop filling about 1-1/4 inches from end and take the casing off. Smooth out any bumps with your fingers; be careful not to push the filling out in the process.

Tie off the open end of the casing with a piece of string, or tie the casing itself. Repeat this process with remainder of mixture and casings.

To cook the andouille sausage, fry in a hot skillet for about 12 minutes on each side until crisp at the edges.

This is an excellent homemade sausage recipe. Perfect for breakfast.

6 lbs venison, ground
2 lbs pork, ground
1/2 cup homemade Tender Quick
1/4 cup homemade brown sugar, packed
3 TBS sage
1 TBS homemade garlic powder
1 TBS homemade onion powder
1 TBS fennel
1 TBS freshly ground black pepper
1 TBS crushed homemade crushed red pepper, or to taste

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Patty out a piece of sausage and fry it. Taste this to be sure it's seasoned enough. Divide into 1 lb packages and freeze.

This is great fried and served with gravy and biscuits. Yum.

The next one of my homemade sausage recipes is this one for Summer Sausage. The taste is outstanding and the texture is perfect. You may also use this recipe for ground beef. Finish this off in a smoker with hickory wood; it really is worth it. You can purchase summer sausage casings at Cabelas.


3 lbs venison (pork, beef or mixed), ground
3 TBS homemade Tender Quick
1 cup cold water
2 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade onion powder
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp Liquid Smoke
2 jalapeno peppers (or to taste), seeded and minced
1-1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Mix the tender quick, water, mustard seed, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and Liquid Smoke together in a large bowl until the tender quick is dissolved.

Add the ground venison, jalapeno peppers and cheese; mix well. Divide in half and roll into logs. Wrap tightly with foil and refrigerate overnight.

PREHEAT oven to 170 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil. Unwrap the sausage logs and place on the prepared baking pan.

Bake for a few hours or until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees. Cool to room temperature and dab excess oil. Slice and serve. Great homemade sausage recipes...
