Andouille Stuffed Pork Loin

ANDOUILLE STUFFED PORK LOIN

2 1/2 - 3 Lbs. Pork loin
Andouille sausage. The length of the loin.
Cajun/Creole Seasoning.
Hickory Wood

Insert a sharpening steel or long filet knife through the loin creating a hole for the Andouille. Force the Andouille through the hole.
Cover the loin well (heavily) with the seasoning. Don't forget the ends.
Wrap tightly and refrigerate for 48 hours.
Remove the loin from the refrigerator 2 hours prior to cooking.
Fire up the Grill, and stabilize at 250*-275*
Lay the loin on the grill and Cook to the 145*-150* range in the thickest portion. Use a smalll amount of Hickory for Flavoring Wood.
Remove, and let it rest for 10 minutes. Slice into 3/4" to 1" slices to serve.

TASSO GRAVY

6 Tablespoons Butter
1/2 Cup Flour
3/4-1 Lb. Tasso Cubed
1 Cup chicken Stock
3 Cups water more or less.
Course ground black pepper
Salt to taste

Melt the butter over low heat. Add the Tasso and lightly saute' for 5 minutes
being careful not to burn the butter. Add the flour and stir continuously until the flour has cooked for 6 to 8 minutes. Continue to stir (whisk) while adding the chicken stock, and enough water to make a nice gravy. Add fresh cracked pepper and salt to taste. Cover and keep warm for 10 to 15 minutes.


Serve the Andouille stuffed loin and Tasso Gravy with hot, stone ground yellow grits, and a side of Okra and Tomatoes.

Enjoy!!

Tasso is a smoked seasoned ham I believe.
I can't get it up here at this end of the Mississippi.... I made an Emeril stuffing one year and had to order it online from Louisiana. It wasn't expensive, maybe 4-5 bucks for the package, but the shipping was $14 alone!!!!
Good stuff but next time I'll have to wait for some until my FIL goes back down south and brings it back. I did find a recipe for it once, I don't remember why I didn't make it.

I found the recipe I almost used

Nola Cuisine Homemade Tasso Recipe

I remember why I didn't now, I don't have a smoker and didn't want to make my own stovetop version, but I know you can make one too. DH thought I would set off all the smoke detectors because it was January and couldn't open windows.

Miss Amy Thank You!!....Tasso is normally made from the shouder of a hog!
It is "cured" briefly, heavily seasoned, then cooked for several hours. A flavoring wood is used to give it it's characteristic smoky flavor. Sometimes refered to (Incorrectly) as Tasso "Ham"...It is not ham!

Miss Lee....Guilty as charged!! I am from.. Away Down South in Dixie!! Hurrah! Hurrah!

Andy M...I thought about you as I prepared these items knowing you to be a "connoisseur" of Andouille, and Tasso. I told the DW that you would love it!!
The Tasso Gravy while simplistic will blow you A-Way!!


EDIT...Andy did you ever get your shipment in??

Thanks Cajun Cook...I thought this might interest you!!

Oh, I was too tired to look last night, but the andouille was from Bailey's in La Place, just up the road a bit from you. I usually buy there or at Jacob's...or both!

I went to a wedding awhile back up above Laffy and they had the best boudin I ever had. Meant to ask them where they got it but didn't. I am sure it was local. I have yet to find boudin that good round Thib.

It may have come from Comeaux's Grocery at Breaux Bridge...They are suppose to have top notch Boudin. There is a place in Church Point, but I can't think of the name.....What about Bourgeois Market.????

You know what, I think that is it! The second I read Comeaux's a lightbulb turned on. I am guessing someone probably did tell me and considering the condition I was in, didn't remember. You know how receptions are down here. LOL The bride and groom wore white shrimp boots for the wedding so..... LOL I never have tried Bourgeois' boudin. We have gotten everything else from there though. They are good but they are so danged expensive.
