Sejouk (Spicy Sausage)
Sejouk (also known as sudjuk, sujuk, or merguez) is a spicy version of sausage that is common in Middle Eastern cuisine, stemming from places like Morocco, Algeria, Turkey, Bosnia, Albania and more.
They are not made from pork, but typically beef and sometimes a lamb-beef mixture with an addition of spices like smoked paprika for flavor and color.
I’m trying to cook with zabiha meat more and I generally cook American like pot roast, steaks, corned beef brisket. I’m running into problems of the meat being very dry. My pot roast turned out extremely dry with Zabiha meat and my chicken meatballs were inedible. The steaks are extremely dry and tough. When I make these dishes with non-zabiha meat, they turn out fabulous.
Do you have suggestions to help moisten the meat?
Your cooking all your meat a bit too long.. if the pot roast is too dry add water or stock.. as for the chicken meat balls.. I’m guessing your using chicken boneless breast.. hence why it might be dry.. chicken in general is a dry meat.. unless it is on the bone.. my advice is to use red meat for meatballs. Otherwise if you really want chicken meatballs. Use BONELESS chicken thigh for mince it will be less dry and add a little bit of butter in the mixture to keep it moist when shallow frying.. hope this helps
