Pepperoni Snack Sticks

5 2 5 1

Made of a combination of beef, pork, and bacon ends, Pepperoni Snack Sticks are the ultimate snack food. A special combination of spices makes them different than anything you can buy at the store.

If you are grinding your own meat, trying freezing it for up to 30 minutes, to make it easier to grind. Sometimes it is helpful to pass the meat through the grinder twice.

It is important to use glass, ceramic, or plastic bowls when mixing your meats with the fast cure. If you use aluminum or steel (or other reactive metals), a chemical reaction will occur and it will ruin the mixture or could cause you to get ill.

Ingredients

80 pounds (36kg) ground beef (20% fat)

20 pounds (9kg) ground pork

10 pounds (4 1/2 kg) ground bacon ends

2 1/2 pounds (1.1kg) salt

5 1/2 ounces (155g) crushed red pepper

3 ounces (85g) black pepper

3 ounces (85g) allspice

1 1/2 ounces (42g) cayenne pepper

4 ounces (113g) crushed fennel

4 ounces (113g) whole fennel

2 ounces (56g) garlic powder

3 ounces (85g) paprika

1 (4 ounce, 113g) bag fast cure

19 MM collagen casings

Equipment

grinder with stuffing tube

Recipe Directions

  1. Mix beef, pork, bacon, salt, crush red pepper, black pepper, allspice, cayenne pepper, crushed fennel, whole fennel, and fast cure in a glass, ceramic, or plastic bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 24 hours.

I am looking forward to trying this recipe! I do have a question though, the 'quick cure', what exactly is it? Where can I buy it?
