    Bah, Peter Shorts Butchers in my home town....... in 40 plus years only had 1 bad moment, poxy turkey of all things and that's after buying a roasting joint once a loads of ground beef, sausages etc.
    He's a farmer too so all the stuff carved up is his, nothing bought in from other farms unless they have his say so. Yeah you pay more but we trust him and his quality. Very rarely buy meat from supermarkets just for that reason.

    Once you grind up wagyu, can you tell it use to be wagyu? The whole point of wagyu is the fat marbling. Couldn't you grind lean meat and fat together?

  • Rybson Live

    Sorry guys but this is not kiełbasa, it should not be named like that. It's too much blended, it is more similar to sausage you can find in hot dog. If you like videos like this please have a look at this guy, he is polish

    I noticed a couple of comments pointing out that they were 'ruining the value of the wagyu by grinding it'. Note that it is lean wagyu, not the expensive fatty stuff. 2:04

    In Austria this is called 'Käsekrainer', a variation of the 'Kranjska klobasa', which is a Slovenian national dish 'Käseleberkäse'. Great to see culinary tradition moving around the globe to grow XXXL.

    They should really get a handpowerd charcuterie slicer the slices will become true perfection since they should be room temperature when slicing and the electric ones can ruin the cut by going too fast since when at room temperature they release their full flavour profile (unless its a cotto always keep cold) but they become much more brittle so the electric ones either tear them or melt the fat. The place I work at specializes in charcuteries and they are all sliced ala minute so they don't dry and is served at optimal temperature. Looks extremely tasty though. Also never pre slice charcuteries it will ruin the flavour and texture by either being too cold or too dry.

  • M Ouija
    M Ouija 3 months ago

    I'm not sure how or why this is a kielbasa, as opposed to any other kind of sausage. It looks more like a cheese filled bologna or wurst to me. As a 100% Polack, I've never seen a kielbasa that looked anything like this, both externally and internally. Kielbasa is chunky looking on the inside, uses natural casing about 3cm (1.25 inch or so) in diameter and usually comes in a horseshoe shape when you get it from an authentic Polish butcher.
