Beef Summer Sausage

6

"This is a ground beef summer sausage you can make at home. It takes a while, but have you seen the prices of store bought summer sausage?! This recipe is well worth the wait. You can also wrap them in foil and freeze them."

Overall good flavor but tasted a little flat. I'll add some salt next time to see if that helps. Also, I cooked at 170 for 4 hours and it was browning nicely but still pretty raw in the middle ...

Wasn't too bad. Didn't turn out like I expected and it seemed rather greasy.

Mu sister in-law makes this every Christmas, she cooks it at 250 for 2 hours and shapes the logs and lets it sit overnight - it is awesome and turns out quite well.

Turned the heat up a little as the meat stayed raw. Found out the MSG was not a good idea. MSG = headache :(
