Sweet and garlicky Filipino breakfast sausage
Watch How To Make It:
There's a wide variety of different longganisas from different regions of the Philippines. I typically enjoy the sweet longganisa, but I feel so bad eating the store-bought ones often. Usually longganisa is made with pork, wrapped in sausage casing, and packed with sweet and spicy flavors. I wanted to make a quick longganisa recipe that you can whip up quickly without too many fancy ingredients. The YouTube video shows that I use ground beef, but you can use ground pork or chicken, whichever you have available. There are also other longganisa recipes that call for annatto powder and paprika, but I found that it's not mandatory to have delicious longganisa. I just want a sweet and mildy spicy sausage. Here it is!
Ingredients: - 1 1/3 lb ground pork, beef, or chicken - 1/4 cup brown sugar - 2 tsp salt - 1 tsp black pepper - 8 cloves finely minced garlic - 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar - 2 tsp soy sauce - 1 tbsp oil
Directions: 1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix thoroughly. 2. Grab a small handful of the meat and shape it into logs. 3. Heat oil in a large pan over medium flame. Cook the longganisa on the pan, making sure to brown all sides of the longganisa. 4. Remove from the heat, and serve with a side of rice!
Special Notes: The thinner you shape your longganisa, the faster it will cook!
