Just look at this price...$5.04 for just over 5-pounds; what a deal!
My spices consisted of salt, sage and black pepper; all mixed together and set to the side.
Next I rinsed the ribs and placed them in a pan to drain while I began cutting off the bones.
Once the bones are cut off I rinsed the meat a second time; I do not like having small slivers of bone in my sausage. Next I layered the meat slices in a pan and sprinkle the seasoning on each piece.
I like to add the seasoning before grinding so the flavor is well mixed.
As I began cooking a few patties I realized my sausage didn't have enough fat mixed in the meat; so I ended up lean sausage.However, the sausage tasted great and not dry like I had expected. In fact, the sausage had a very nice "meaty" taste to it.
