Homemade Salami

I have been making this homemade salami for over 20 years. It is a tradition at our house.  I'm not a big fan of salami, but this homemade version is a winner. Makes great sandwiches or for an appetizer with crackers and cheese. It is so easy! You will certainly make it a family tradition if you ever try it.  The Tender Quick is a little hard to find.  Our H.E.B. doesn't carry it.  I had to get a friend in Houston buy it for me at a Kroger.

Printable Version:
2 pounds ground beef
1 cup water
2 tablespoons Tender Quick
1/2 teaspoon mustard seed
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
Mix with hands in a large bowl and leave in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, shape into 4 loaves and bake 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees.  It doesn't get much easier than that.
