Cheesesteak sausage

Everything you love about the sandwich but in a sausage
Prep Time30 mins
Cook Time5 mins
Total Time25 mins
How much do you want to make? 1000 grams



  • Sautee the onions and set to the side
  • cut provolone into small pieces and set to the side
  • Clean your meat of any silver skin, sinew, arteries and cut into small strips or cubes. Place in the freezer for an hour or until the temp reaches 32f – 34F.
  • Grind your very chilled meat on a medium plate (6mm). Rechill if necessary
    (In the video I ran the cheese through the grinder along with the meat but I found that adding the cheese in small chunks to the meat while mixing produced a better texture, but either way is fine)
  • Mix the meat along with all the other ingredients till it becomes very tacky. If you grab a small handful it will stick to your hand if you hold your hand upside down.
  • Stuff you meat into the hog casings and form into links
  • refrigerate overnight to dry out the casings and develope the flavor
  • cook to an internal of 155f. enjoy

    Hi Eric,

    That’s a great recipe. Can I cook it in a smoker instead of boiling it?
