Homemade Chorizo

ChiliDude | Nov 11, 201307:41 AM

The Bottom Dollar store near my home has 1/2 pork loins on sale this week, 3rd week in November 2013, so I bought a small one with the intention of making chorizo. I made it yesterday, and it turned out really good tasting.

Here's the ingredient list...
3+ pound pork loin (ground with old-fashion meat grinder)
1 Tbs. Kosher salt
1 1/2 tsps. each of ground coriander and ground cumin
1/2 tsp. cinnamin
1 Tbs. of California-style garlic powder with parsley
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
A combination of crushed dried Thai chiles and de Arbol chiles (unmeasured)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

After grinding the pork loin, the ground meat was spread out in a metal baking pan for hand mixing with all the other ingredients.

I wore surgeon's gloves to do the mixing because I'm not crazy to touch bare handed the mixture that hot chiles as an ingredients.

After mixing the ground meat and other ingredients, I formed the meat into 6 patties. Five of the patties was wrapped in saran and then put in freezer bags and immediately place in the freezer.

The sixth patty was used as an ingredient of a MexItalian frittata that was eaten for supper. Recipe to follow only if anyone shows interest by requesting it in a post.
