Recipe for Sheftalia (Barbeque Sausages)

Ingredients

1 karen mintzias
500 gm finely ground fatty pork
500 gm finely ground veal or lamb
1 large onion; finely chopped or- grated
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
2 teaspoon salt
250 gm panna (caul fat from pig)

Instructions

Combine pork with veal or lamb, onion, parsley, salt and a generous grinding of black pepper. Dip panna into a bowl of warm water for a minute or two, remove and carefully open out a piece at a time, laying it out flat on work surface. Cut with kitchen scissors into pieces about 10 cm (4 inches) square. Take a good tablespoon of meat mixture and shape into a thick sausage about 5 cm (2 inches) long. Place towards one edge of piece of panna, fold end and sides over meat and roll up firmly. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Thread sausages on flat sword-like skewers, leaving space between them. Number on each skewer depends on their length. Cook over glowing charcoal, turning frequently. Do not place too close to heat as sheftalia must cook fairly slowly so that the inside is well cooked and the outside nicely browned without being burnt. The panna melts during cooking, keeping the meat moist and adding flavour. Excessive flaring of fire can be controlled by a sprinkle of water on the coals. Serve sheftalia as an appetizer or a main course.
