Ingredients

  • 2 pounds pork butt (2 1/2 pounds with bone), diced into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1/2 pound fat back, diced into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh sage leaves

Combine diced pork with all other ingredients and chill for 1 hour. Using the fine blade of a grinder, grind the pork. Form into 1-inch rounds. Refrigerate and use within 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months. For immediate use, saute patties over medium-low heat in a non-stick pan. Saute until brown and cooked through, approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
