One way that husband and I save money is buying reduced price goods in the supermarket. Like half a kilo of minced lean pork. But its been in the freezer too long and I feel that I need to cook it already. Luckily a friend posted a recipe that I always love and she even shared the recipe to me. So easy and yet husband loves this one to bits!
Thanks to Riz for this!
It is called Longanisa which is our version of your sausage. It is so easy to do. Her instruction is just let the pork marinade in the fridge overnight and you can freeze it for future cooking. As my minced pork is thawed already I cooked everything and then froze it. This is one of those dish that gets better with age. Filipino food is usually done in a way that you can keep it without fridge as its expensive to buy one before. The sugar and soy sauce acts as a preservative to make this dish last long.
1kg mince pork
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs Worcesteshire sauce
3 gloves of finely chopped garlic
2 to 3 pcs of bird's eye chili
Mix all the ingredients together.
Store them in the fridge (for at least) overnight.
Form into sausage shape.
Fry or bake.
Or wrap each with greaseproof paper and freeze.
