This is so easy with amazing results. A mildly spiced summer sausage made with mustard seed and black pepper. It's great for snacks with chunks of cheese on the side.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, mustard seed, garlic powder, liquid smoke, curing salt, and pepper using your hands. Form into two equal logs, and wrap each one in aluminum foil with the shiny side facing the meat. Refrigerate for 24 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Poke small holes through the aluminum foil in the bottom of the meat rolls using a toothpick. Place on a broiler rack and fill the broiler pan with 1/2 inch of water.
  3. Bake for 90 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool slightly, then refrigerate for 12 hours before unwrapping and serving.

This beats store-bought summer sausages hands down. I highly recommend using extra lean ground chunk (great flavor) to avoid all the grease and fat. I cracked the mustard seeds before adding them, but otherwise didn't change a thing.

I love this recipe. I have made it 15+ times. First time I made it exactly as written. Five stars as written. My family likes there sausage slightly hot so next time I added jalapenos chopped. I have also added chunks of cheese. Very good recipe without the hassle of a smoke house.
