    saw this where some one was looking for a recipe for tasso.
    so i thought what is tasso.[​IMG]
    after a little research found out it will kick red beans & rice up a notch[​IMG]
    gots to make some of this stuff so i pulled up 6 recipes then just kind of made my own[​IMG]
    heres the begining in fridge now gonna let it meld for a day or so[​IMG]
    cut up a butt used half for this and half for chorizo.
    never made either one befor so if its trash not out much but spices[​IMG]

    I never heard of tasso. I googled and fully understand that I must attempt at this pork product in the near future. :)

    The tasso that i have had was in New Orleans at a little joint called Joey B I think it was just off of canal street. It was really spicey and very tastey too. Now with my new found love of sausage making this wold be on the short list for sure. Now I wouldn't mind having your recipe for this stuff too. I hope you like the way it comes out too.

    It definetely has a punch to it along with some depth. I recently had a potluck at work and made Jambalaya Pasta:

    I substituted the Ugly Brothers homemade tasso (6-8 ounces) for the Andouille and omitted the shrimp (havent seen shrimp in too many Jambalayas [​IMG]). It was a huge success...
