  1. Cut meat into 1/2" (12 mm) cubes. Mix with salt and cure #1.
  2. Using blender/food processor emulsify SPI with water for 60 seconds. Add oil and emulsify one more minute. Add spices, tomato sauce and flour and blend all together.
  3. Grind 3/4 (600 g) of meat with 6 mm (1/4") plate. Leave 1/4 (200 g) meat cubes intact as they are the show meat.
  4. Using a mixing bowl mix ground meat with remaining meat cubes (200 g) and the emulsified paste.
  5. Stuff into 36 mm casings. Hold at room temperature for 30 minutes to provide more time for sodium nitrite (cure #1) to develop stronger color.
  6. Cook in water at 80° C (176° F) for 35 minutes.
  7. Drain, cool and refrigerate.
Kangaroo meat is 98% fat free so in order to create a quality sausage pork fat or vegetable oil should be added.
