Have you ever wanted to make Homemade Summer Sausage but you thought it was just too hard?
Have you said to yourself "I can't make Summer Sausage, I don't even own a smoker".
Well you're in luck. I have the easiest homemade summer sausage recipe you'll ever use. And you don't even need a smoker.
5 lb Ground Beef (or Venison if you like)
5 tsp Morton Tender Quick (curing mix)
3 tbsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 tbsp Crushed Red Pepper
1 tsp Whole Black Peppercorns
1 tbsp Sea Salt
1/4 cup Mustard Seed
1/2 tsp Liquid Smoke
Mix all of the ingredients in a large container, cover the summer sausage mixture, and place in the fridge. You will need to keep the sausage in the fridge for the next three days taking it out to mix the sausage once a day. The reason for the additional time in the cooler is to let the quick cure do it's magic. Now that you have waited all that time for youe sausage to cure itsd time to cook your summer sausage. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees F. Form your summer sausage into logs or stuff into fibrous casings and bake on a rack for 8 hours. Let them cool on paper towels. After they have cooled, slice and serve. I hope you enjoy this homemade summer sausage recipe as much as I do. Be sure to check out our other sausage recipes.
