Know Your Meat Cuts – Sausages?
We're gathered here today to talk about sausages.
While they're primarily known as a summertime favourite and staple of many a backyard barbecue, sausages are also incorporated into many dishes all year long.
A sausage is a type of meat product usually made from ground meat, often pork, beef, or poultry, along with salt, spices and other flavourings. Other ingredients such as grains or breadcrumbs may be included as fillers or extenders.
Typically, a sausage is formed in a casing traditionally made from intestine but sometimes from synthetic materials. Sausages that are sold raw are cooked in many ways, including pan-frying, broiling and barbecuing. Some sausages are cooked during processing, and the casing may then be removed.
Sausage making is a traditional food preservation technique. Sausages may be preserved by curing, drying (often in association with fermentation or culturing, which can contribute to preservation), smoking, or freezing. Some cured or smoked sausages can be stored without refrigeration. Most fresh sausages must be refrigerated or frozen until they are cooked.
Sausages are made in a wide range of national and regional varieties, which differ by the types of meats that are used, the flavouring or spicing ingredients (garlic, peppers, wine, etc.), and the manner of preparation.
Pork Sausage is seasoned ground pork that is often enclosed in a casing. The ground pork used for sausage can come from a variety of cuts of pork including the shoulder butt and the loin.
Beef sausages made of any part of any animal but is mostly the trimmings or off-cuts of premium cuts like the rump or blade of beef or veal. The meat is then ground or sliced into small pieces and stuffed into a casing with other ingredients, such as breadcrumbs, seasoning and flavourings (e.g. spices.)to create the final sausage.
