Decided to grind some beef for cheeseburgers yesterday. There wasn't as much beef as I'd hoped (it's a pain to get out the grinder, to set it up, and to clean it, so this isn't done just to make 2 or 3 hamburgers), so my lovely wife surrendered some pork to be added.
I was out of American cheese.
This meant that I was committing blasphemy already.
Since I was about to violate one of the most sacred laws of the cheeseburger deities, I decided to get experimental. Sitting in the fridge was a package of special, famous, auspicious
Dongguan sausages - that intriguing Guangdong style made using sugar instead of salt to preserve them. A big handful of those joined the beef and pork in the grinder.
Other than eating a cheeseburger only using slices of non-American cheese (a most grievous sin that I shall surely suffer for), the results were actually very pleasing.
