  • 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.
  • sauté the chopped shiitake with a pinch of salt till they take on a golden brown color. Set to the side to cool.
  • Grind your very chilled meat on a #6 medium plate
  • Add the sautéed mushrooms, seasonings, and water to your meat and mix 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 the sausage meat into the hog casings, link, and prick out any air pockets.
  • Refrigerate on a wire rack overnight.
  • Cook the sausages on a low heat till you reach an internal temp of 155f (68c)
