Wagyu Beef Trim
Wagyu beef (aka Kobe beef) is well known for its buttery marbling of fat, tender texture and intense beefy flavor.
Using Kobe beef trim is a great way to take your homemade beef sausages to the next level because it allows you to get the flavor benefits of wagyu meat in an affordable form that is easily ground.
This Kobe beef is raised in Australia from Wagyu cattle that are descendants from Japanese herds. (Wagyu means "Beef of Japan.") Their intricately marbled beef is legendary and the result of careful breeding and a highly regimented diet. That marbling creates beef that is the most tender, juicy, and flavorful available.
Kobe Beef Frankfurters are also available if you’d prefer pre-made wagyu sausages.
RECIPES & TIPS
Grind this trim thawed but cold using a meat grinder or attachment on your mixer. Mix with complimentary flavors of your choice and either use as sausage patties or pack the sausage into sausage casings to make links.
Some flavors to consider when making wagyu beef sausages include Madeira, black peppercorns, horseradish, bell peppers, chilies, mustard and/or beer.
