  • 1/2 pound coarsely ground beef sirloin (about 90% lean)

  • 1/3 lb coarsely ground beef sirloin
  • 1/3 lb coarsely ground pork

  • 1/2 small/medium yellow onion grated
  • 4 to 6 cloves garlic, pressed through a garlic press or minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup sparkling water

Instructions

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the beef, pork, garlic, onion, salt, and pepper, gently mixing to combine. Add the sparkling water, gently mixing until tacky, 3 to 5 minutes. Do not overmix. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours minimum, preferably overnight.
  • Knead gently once more, then gently shape the mixture into sixteen 3-inch long sausages, arranging the sausages on a sheet pan. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour minimum, or overnight.
