Andouille-Chef Folse Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

5 lb pork butt
1/2 lb pork fat
1/2 cup chopped garlic
1/4 cup cracked black pepper
2 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp dry thyme
4 tbsp salt
6 feet beef middle casing (see butche, r or
1 specialty shop)

Recipe Preparation

Andouille is the Cajun smoked sausage so famous nationally today.
Made with pork butt, shank and a small amount of pork fat, this
sausage is seasoned with salt, cracked black pepper and garlic. The
andouille is then slowly smoked over pecan wood and sugar cane. True
andouille is stuffed into the beef middle casing which makes the
sausage approximately one and a half inches in diameter. When smoked,
it becomes very dark to almost black in color. It is not uncommon for
the Cajuns to smoke andouille for seven to eight hours at
approximately 175 degrees. Traditionally, the andouilles from France
were made from the large intestines and stomach of the pig, seasoned
heavily and smoked. In parts of Germany, where some say andouille
originated, the sausage was made with all remaining intestines and
casings pulled through a larger casing, seasoned and smoked. It was
served thinly sliced as an hors d'oeuvre. It is interesting to note
that the finest andouille in France comes from the Brittany and
Normandy areas. It is believed that over half of the Acadian exiles
who came to Louisiana in 1755 were originally from these coastal
regions. Cube pork butt into one and a half inch cubes. Using a meat
grinder with four one quarter inch holes in the grinding plate, grind
pork and pork fat. If you do not have a grinding plate this size, I
suggest hand cutting pork butt into one quarter inch square pieces.
Place ground pork in large mixing bowl and blend in all remaining
ingredients. Once well blended, stuff meat into casings in one foot
links, using the sausage attachement on your meat grinder. Tie both
ends of the sausage securely using a heavy gauge twine. In your
homestyle smoker, smoke andouille at 175-200 degrees F for
approximately four to five hours using pecan or hickory wood. The
andouille may then be frozen and used for seasoning gumbos, white or
red beans, pastas or grilling as an hors d'oeuvre. Recipe by: Chef

Food Tips of the Week

Dieting made easy

One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
The problems associated with reduced carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Many studies over recent years have proved that eating excess animal fats causes greater risk of cancer, coronary disease and other serious illnesses.
Although there is strong evidence that suggests that low carb diets may help with your weight loss program, some of this strong evidence has proved to be controversial among nutritionists, and their safety record has been challenged
Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes parsley, mangos and tomato ketchup)
These fruits and vegetables are rich in alpha-carotene and beta-carotene believed by nutritionalists to play a major part in helping prevent cancer, spefically cancer of the stomach and lesophagus. A good number also help you lose weight, so are ideal for including in your weight loss program.
