beef sausages

Stay in charge of your ingredients and make sausages at home.

Here's a great sausage recipe that you can make right in your own kitchen! They have the deliciousness, moisture, and texture you’d expect in a professional gourmet sausage, but you control exactly what goes in them! They are an all-round, family friendly BBQ snag that is lightly seasoned with sage, ground ginger and white pepper. Beef is also a great alternative if you are trying to stay away from pork or would just like to try something new.

This recipe is based on a traditional British style beef sausage and includes a portion of grain filler (rusk). Adding filler helps to create soft spacing between the meat fibres so the sausages don’t cook up too chewy or dry. Fillers absorb the seasoning and fats as they smelt into, and blend with the beef during the cooking processes. We used a small amount of freshly cooked rice - and it works a treat.

GRAIN-FREE OPTION

If you would like a pure beef and grain-free homemade sausage, simply leave out the cooked rice and add 3 tablespoons of red wine or red wine vinegar instead.
