  • 1

    Cut the lamb shoulder into 2” pieces, and using a meat grinder, grind the meat.

    • 2 Pound lamb shoulders

  • 2

    Lightly combine the lamb with all the spices in a bowl and refrigerate. It is important to refrigerate the ground lamb so the fat does not melt in order to give the sausage a good texture.

    • 1 Tablespoon garlic, minced

    • 1 Teaspoon cumin

    • 1 Teaspoon paprika

    • 1/2 Teaspoon cayenne pepper

    • 2 Tablespoon Fennel, ground

    • 1 Tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped

    • 1 Tablespoon parsley, minced

    • 1 Teaspoon black pepper

    • 2 Tablespoon salt

  • 3

    Next, using a sausage horn, attach the hog casing (60 inch) and start to feed the sausage back through the grinder to fill the casing and twist into links.

    • 1  Hog Casings

  • 4

    With a paring knife, prick holes all along the casing (this will allow steam to escape while cooking). Refrigerate.

  • 5

    Combine all ingredients for the yogurt sauce in a medium-sized bowl. Cover and refrigerate.

    • 3 Cup Yogurt, Greek

    • 1 Whole lemon juice

    • 1 Whole Cucumber, peeled
