This is one of our most popular dishes at SPQR. You can cook the sausage any way you like but I'd recommend frying it light extra virgin olive oil - should get to a nice dark brown color outside. Serve this with my Fried Brusseles Sprouts and pasta. Enjoy!

  1. Sausage: Finely grind peppercorns, fennel seeds, and chile flake together in a spice grinder. Mash garlic in a mortar and pestle with a small amount of the measured salt until a smooth paste is formed. Mix ground spices, wine, and garlic paste together with the cubed meat and fat. Grind on 3/8th die. Mix sausage in mixer with hook attachment to incorporate all ingredients.
  2. Braised Fennel: Sweat onions and fennel seed in a generous amount of olive oil. When onions are translucent, add in diced fennel and tomato. Stir to combine, bring to a simmer, then pour contents in a baking dish. Bake @ 375 for about 90 minutes until fennel is sweet and soft but not overcooked. Salt to taste.

    This was spectacular! Made it last night for a dinner - made the sausage in the morning and let it sit all day before pan frying it. Highly recommend it. Served it as part of a small plate dinner. I used bacon instead of pork fat...
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
    This is a variation
