I was just given a meat grinder by a friend who had 2, and I really want to try using it. We just processed one of our last meat goats yesterday, and I have about half of the meat in bags to make sausage with (already deboned). Anyone have any good sausage recipes for leaner meat? All of the recipes that I'm finding online call for pork and pork fat. I don't have any animal fat available to use... is there something else that I could use to substitute? any suggestions?
you can make your sausage as lean as you want but adding some fat nearly always makes for better taste. you can look in any phone book and call a meat locker or meat processor and purchase some pork or beef fat, real cheap, and you dont have to use the preservatives used by commercial recipes, I have a couple books I bought several decades ago that have sausage recipes for everything from squirrel sausage to smoked pork. but there are so many types of goat and goat sausage today you'd do better on a google search for the type goat sausage you want., best wishes, ray
Thanks for the responses everyone! Just finished making the sausage, and it came out great! I didn't add any extra fat, only the little bits that were on the meat. It tastes great and is still nice and moist even without any added fat. I used rosemary, oregano, thyme, garlic, black pepper, red pepper and salt as seasonings.
