Merguez – North African Spicy Sausages

These spicy North African sausages are popular in Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia, where they’re served plain, with couscous, in sandwiches, with eggs or stuffed into pastries. They can be made from lamb mince, beef mince, or a mixture of the two.

Merguez - North African Spicy Sausages
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 500 g beef or lamb mince
  • 120 g finely chopped fat (dripping is a good substitute especially if the mince is lean)
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped or pressed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 tablespoons merguez spice mix
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons harissa
  • sausage casings, optional
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, kneading the mixture well to evenly distribute the spices, herbs and harissa.
  2. Shape as desired. (Alternatively, you can pass the ingredients through a meat grinder and feed the merguez into sausage casings.)
Notes
For best flavour, allow the merguez to sit for 30 minutes (or longer in the fridge) before cooking.
As with any sausage, fat is key to the flavour and texture. Try not to skimp too much if you feel the need to adjust the recipe.
