Bear Sausage Recipe – Great for Biscuits and Gravy

My husband and I have been lucky enough to harvest two large bears over the past few years. Our favorite thing to make from bear meat is ground sausage that we love to use for biscuits and gravy. We have also used bear sausage in spaghetti, as pizza topping, and in many recipes that call for hamburger.  – The secret to great tasting bear meat is to trim away all fat and sinew. This is a recipe for a seasoning blend to make a delicious sausage and can be made with bear meat, venison, elk, or pork.  – Enjoy!  – Per pound of meat: ¼ lb. pork fat 1 tsp. salt ½ tsp. dried parsley ¼ tsp. rubbed sage ¼ tsp. ground black pepper ¼ tsp. dried thyme ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper ¼ tsp. coriander  – Run meat through grinder to desired consistency. Mix pork fat evenly. In a bowl, combine salt, parsley, sage, pepper, thyme, red pepper, and coriander. Sprinkle evenly over ground meat mixture and mix with hands to distribute evenly throughout.  – It is important to note that bear meat can carry the trichinosis parasite also once found in raw pork; therefore it must be cooked thoroughly in order to kill it.
