Ingredients

1 tablespoon coriander seed

1 tablespoon mustard seed

1 pound lamb leg, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 pound pork shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 pound smoked applewood bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces

2 ounces fresh sage, roughly chopped

2 ounces fresh oregano, roughly chopped

2 teaspoons cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

2 teaspoons garlic powder

2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

3 tablespoons salt

Extra-virgin olive oil, for sauteing

  1. Toast the coriander seed and mustard seed in a small, dry saute pan over low heat until fragrant. Place the toasted seeds in a spice grinder and grind to a powder. Place lamb, pork, and bacon in a large bowl. Add all herbs and seasonings and toss to combine well. 
  2. Grind the meat in a meat grinder with a medium die and then chill overnight.
