Easy Moose Sausage Recipe

For all the successful moose hunters out there, here is the easiest homemade sausage recipe I have tried. It's very tasty and easy to make.  It also makes a great snack on the trail.

Easiest Moose Sausage Recipe

1 pound ground pork (or pork sausage)

4 pounds ground moose (or venison, caribou etc.)

1 Tbsp mustard seed

1 tsp liquid smoke

1 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp ground pepper

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp cayenne pepper

2 Tbsp brown sugar

1/2 tsp onion powder

2-1/2 Tbsp Morton Tender Quick

1 cup cold water

1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (optional)

3-5 slices of jalapeno (optional)

Directions: Mix all ingredients well in a glass mixing bowl. Put in refrigerator for 3-5 days to cure (depending on how much you want the meat to cure.) Mix every day. On the final curing day (3rd to 5th) day divide meat into 5 equal portions and roll each into a cylinder. Then wrap each roll in aluminum foil, ensuring that the foil’s shiny side faces inward. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Poke holes in the foil at the bottom of each roll and place on broiler pan. Bake for  about 1-1/2 hours. Internal temperature should be 170 degrees F using a meat thermometer. 

*After cooking, the sausage does needs to be refrigerated. It can also be frozen for longer term storage.

Note: the recipe calls for up to 5 Tbsp of Morton Tender Quick. However, I reduced curing salt because I like the sausage less salty.
