"This is an old family recipe passed down from my grandmother to my father in the 1950's. It has been made countless times by my family. Portion into quart-sized freezer bags and store in the freezer. Fry in skillet as needed."

  1. Combine the pork cubes with the garlic powder, fennel seed, red pepper flakes, salt, black pepper, and parsley; grind through a coarse plate. Mix in the white wine and grind again.
