Anyone have a good pork roll recipe they would be willing to share, just something I wanted to play around with. I had great luck making my own scrapple last week and would like to make a Taylor type porkroll from scratch. Apparently the recipe is shrouded in mystery. Most people do not make their own sausage and charcuterie anymore, I'm just trying to add another item to my repitoire.
Hey Rat, Boy I love Taylor pork roll. I just went through a couple charcuterie books and found nothing. I hope somebody does though, be fun to try. I Love it on and english muffin with and egg & cheese.
Now aint never had no Taylors Pork Roll but is sounds a little bit for whut would pass for baloney in Tejas. I will run the term by some pals and try to generate some input on how to make it. In the meantime think you will find the recipe below as tasting purty good. Started out making it with 80% beef chuck..but it can be made out of either all beef or all pork on any combo thereof. Beef gives a slight edge on flavor..pork gives a slight edge on a nice soft bite. You can even slip a little bambi in there but I would never drop below the 60/40 ratio in favor of the fat barnyard animuls. If I was gonna make some today I would do it like this:
2-boston butts (deboned) 13-14 lbs
1-chub of 80/20 pre ground beef 5 lbs (sub bambi here if you got some)
1-box of ends and pieces bacon 3 lbs
Now that will skeer the heck out of a 20 lb batch o sausage.
Bigwheel's Cowtown Baloney
20 lbs ground meat (see above)
10 T. TQ (Morton's Tender Quick)
5 T. White Pepper
6 T. Buttermilk Powder
2 T. Paprika
2 T. All spice
2 T. Nutmeg
2 T. Granulated Garlic
2 T. Onion Powder
1 T. MSG
2 t. Coriander
1 t. Ground Cloves
3 t. Caynenne
4 cups water
Mix all the spices in the water and mix well into the meat. Run it through
on the fine plate and mix well again. Stuff into medium hog guts. Smoke at 180 till it gets fittin. Suspect this make you chunk rocks at that stuff you been craving:) Also make some good pickled baloney. Now wowser.
Yes this is a challenge isn't it. The exec Chef at work believes the recipe is polish in origin I have no reason to doubt him, he is like Einstien, we work right near Trenton NJ. and the Taylor plant. The employees sign a secrecy agreement, like I said the recipe is shrouded in mystery. It could be like Texas bologni. I just know it is GOOD!!! Almost as good as scrapple. For those of you that don't know what I am talking about too bad, you are missing out!!
Here's a link to a slight amount of info on the topic. It sounding a lot like whut would be called "trail baloney" which means it dont appear to be totally emulsified such as is the case with most modern supermarket type baloney and weenies. They claim it got a lemony twang which most likely come from a heavy hand on the corriander.
