Lemon Pepper Salami Deli Meat (cooked)

Sliced thin, this deli meat is packed with flavor!

Meat ratio:

Pork Shoulder Boneless 100%


Based off the weight of the total meat ratio.

  • Kosher Salt 1.8%

  • Baking Soda 0.2%

  • Curing Salt #1 0.25%

  • Rosemary, freshly chopped 1 Tbsp/kg of meat

  • Thyme, freshly chopped 1 Tbsp/kg of meat

  • Cracked Black Pepper (0.4%)

  • Lemon Zest (0.5%)

  • 100g Water (10%)


  1. Take the freshly ground meat and place it in a bowl with kosher salt and baking soda. Mix until a bind starts to form.

  2. Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix until thoroughly bound together.

  3. Stuff sausage into 70mm-100mm synthetic casing and make 4-6 lb chubs.

  4. Tie off the chub and let it hang overnight in refrigerator uncovered to let it set up.

  5. Sous vide the chub in a 160°F water bath until internal temp is 155°F.

  6. Put it in the refrigerator until the internal temp is 38°F, and then slice thin on a deli slicer. This is incredible alone on a charcuterie board or on a Italian cold cut type sandwich
