Beef and Pork "Sausages"

The other day I made a new variation of a Middle Eastern dish we have from time to time.  The taste is  somewhere between a meatloaf and a sausage.  I mixed a pound of beef and a pound of pork to create a very moist flavorful meat.  I added crushed garlic, parsley, onion, and hot paprika to give it plenty of flavor.  I served it with rice and a crisp, refreshing cucumber yogurt salad.  We loved this version and the kids requested them the following night, so I know they are a keeper.

Beef and Pork "Sausages"

1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground pork
4 cloves garlic
1 onion
1 teaspoon hot paprika
1/4 cup parsley
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper

Place the ground beef and pork in a large bowl.  In a food processor, pulse the onion and garlic until they are finely minced.  Add the parsley and pulse until minced.  Add mixture to meat.  Season with paprika, a teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.  Mix together with a fork or your hands.  Shape meat into 2 inch long football-shaped spheres.  Grill over high heat.  Serve with rice and cucumber yogurt sauce, if desired.
