southern Italian sausage meat

Main Serves 2 15 min
Pork mince has all sorts of uses: in ragùs with pasta, meatballs, various South East Asian dishes and more. In fact, most beef mince recipes can be improved by substituting 25-50% of the mince with pork. You might beg to differ, but it seems to lighten things up and make the dishes more receptive to other flavours. A good place to start with minced pork is to make your own sausage meat...


  • 350g pork mince
  • 25g breadcrumbs
  • 50ml white wine
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds, ground
  • pinch dried chilli
  • 1 level tsp salt


Prep time: 15 min
  • Step 1

    Mix the pork mince with the breadcrumbs, white wine, garlic cloves, fennel seeds, dried chilli and salt. This mix makes great burgers, meatballs and pasta sauces.
