How to cook Linguiça

Ingredients Of Linguiça

Linguiça (pronounced ling-GWEE-zuh) is a spicy pork sausage…

…made with paprika, chilies, and garlic. There are several…

…varieties of linguica, but it is typically a coarse,

…rustic sausage that is frequently smoked. An excellent linguica,

in my opinion, is a cudgel-shaped sausage. It’s smoky, garlicky,

…and rich with pig fat and red peppers, and…

…it’s delicious on a hoagie bun with grilled onions.

Are you excited to know how it’s made?

Let’s hear from Michael about his experience...

I’ve been living in the USA for quite a long time for my study…

I came from Brazil and it’s been a while that I didn’t come home…

The flight ticket is quite pricy so, I choose to stay here…

…it’s more convenient for anyone my age as well.

Though there’s a lot of Brazilians that I know here.

I still feel homesick sometimes. I truly enjoy the foods here…

…in the USA. However, do you ever longing for the taste of home?

My mother is a great cook. She cooks everything really well!

Her hand is truly blessed and magical…

Everything she makes always gives us laughs and warmness…

I do call her sometimes and do miss her so much…

…as the first son of the family, I wouldn’t let her down.

Several months ago I was busy and I forgot to call my mother…

…suddenly yesterday dad called me multiple times, and..

…when I picked it up, I dropped my jaw at the sad news…

…coming through my ear. My mother got cancer…

I packed all my stuff and promise to finish my papers. In Brazil,

…family comes first. Didn’t tell my parents, I’d like to make a surprise..

…about the surprise, I entered the house quietly.

…when I went home, everybody was asleep, as I told my brother..

After I finished what I prepare, I intentionally made a noisy sound…

…in the kitchen. My parents gasp and were surprised by my presence..

…I invited them to the table to eat what I’ve cooked.

It was feijoada, my mother’s favorite menu…

…she rolled up in tears of joy as she eats.

I’m glad I’m home.

It’s unfair! Since there are a hundred and one grammar rules for the linguiça, we have to cook the whole pork!

From the story, we’ve learned that food could be so sentimental..

…for someone. It’s not just the taste, but it also brings us memories,

linked to the food. So what is feijoada?

We’re going to know feijoada when you read till the end of the article

Let’s get into it!

Follow the instruction if you wish to make a good linguiça on your own :

  • First of all, place the meat and fat in the freezer for about an hour or until they’re practically frozen.
  • Remove some hog casings and place them in a basin of extremely warm water you’ll need 3 to 4 normal lengths, about 15 feet.
  • Then, chop meat and fat into bite-sized bits that will fit in your grinder. Mix the salt, sugar, garlic, dry milk, and the rest of the spices using your hands into the meat and fat.

You can also use these as your go-to spices without having to measure all the condiments for the meat. Our top picks has the best mixture that will make your linguiça special!

Let’s continue with…

  • Allow about an hour of resting time in the refrigerator.
  • Don’t forget to marinate the meat and fat chunks in the salt and curing salt overnight. If you do this, the sausage will have a better bind.
  • Using the coarse die on your meat grinder, grind to a thickness of roughly 6.5 mm. If your room is warmer than 69°F, place the ground meat dish in an ice bath to keep it cool.

While you clean up, return the mixture to the freezer.
Now it’s the fun part...

  • Add the wine to the meat mixture and completely combine with your (very clean) hands-on low for 60-90 seconds. This is necessary in order for the sausage to properly bond!
  • Put it back in the fridge once it has been well blended while you clean up.
  • Fill the casings halfway with sausage. Before constructing links, finish all of the coils.
  • Pinch the sausage down and twist it in one way, then the other, with each subsequent link.

Alternatively, butcher’s thread may be used to tie them up. This is one of the best quality threads you can find online, it’s strong and cooking friendly!

  • Keep the sausages cool by hanging them up. Hang for one hour if the weather is warm or you’re smoking your links.
  • You may hang them for as long as overnight if you have a location where the temperature will not exceed 38°F.

While the sausages are hanging, start your smoker!

  • Smoke the links for a minimum of 3 hours and up to 12 hours. I prefer a milder smokiness so the meat and spices may shine through.
  • Choose oak since it’s more durable than other woods.

Here is the tip!

  • If you’re planning to smoke your sausages, start your smoker while the sausages are hanging.
  • Smoke the links for at least three hours, and up to twelve hours.
  • We need a milder smokiness so that the meat and spices are still discernible.
  • Oak is my preferred wood, although hickory, maple, pecan, or fruitwood may also be used.
  • Place the sausages in the fridge once they have dried and or smoked. If you’re going to freeze the sausages, do so a day ahead of time. This will help the sausages retain their form in the deep freeze by tightening them up.
