the Difference - Venison & Pork
with the current "other than pork"
adventure, we tried some of those Venison,
Red Wine & Pork sausages from Sainsburys...
Very, very meaty and a good chew but
extremely sweet and sticky. The red currant
jelly just powers it way through and I found
it a "tadge" overpowering. The residue from
this in the pan blackened quickly.
These sausages are 80% meat in natural
casings and when cooked up they do have a
pretty firm and solid texture with a "gamey
note", but the level of red current flavour
hides some of this unfortunately.
Now as we've said before about Sainsbury's
sausages we've sampled, please don't get us
wrong, they are a well made sausage, and
they cook up very well and retain a good
succulence, but, these are far too sweet.
Eaten cold the over sweetness and stickiness
was still evident and simply detracted from
what could have been a good sausage!
Not something we would probably buy again...
