Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound ground beef

  • 3/4 pound ground lamb

  • 3 tablespoons finely grated onion

  • 1 tablespoon freshly minced garlic (about 3 medium cloves)

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together beef, lamb, onion, garlic, paprika, salt, pepper, and baking soda by hand until thoroughly combined.

  2. Form meat mixture into finger-length sausages 3/4-inch in diameter.

  3. Light one chimney full of charcoal. When all the charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and spread the coals evenly over entire surface of coal grate. Alternatively, set all the burners of a gas grill to high heat. Set cooking grate in place, cover grill and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil the grilling grate. Grill sausages over medium-high direct heat until well browned on all sides and just cooked through, about 8 minutes total. Remove to a serving tray or plates, let rest for 5 minutes, then serve immediately.
