  1. Grind pork through 5/16” (8 mm) plate.
  2. Grind veal through 1/8” (3 mm) plate.
  3. Using food processor emulsify veal adding 30 % (150 ml, 5 oz fl) crushed ice or cold water. Add all ingredients when emulsifying.
  4. Mix pork with emulsified meat.
  5. Stuff into beef middles of any size. Form straight links, 30-35 cm (12-14 “) long. The ends tied with a twine, hanging loop (10-12 cm, 4-5”) on one end.
