Lucban’s Sausage aka Longganisang Lucban
Longganisang Lucban is a sausage native to the Quezon Province in the Philippines and as it is named probably originated in Lucban, Quezon. The recipe is designed for a long shelf life and basically the sausage is self contatined since you don’t need oil to cook it.
The commonly this sausage is manufactured lovingly in the towns of Sariaya, Tayabas, Lucena and Lucban in either backyard industries or large scale operations.
The usual recipe would be like this , do keep in mind recipe varies from household to household
1 kg of cubed (as opposed to chopped or ground) pork with fat.
¼ cup of oregano extract (can be more or less depending on taste)
1 teaspoon of paprika
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of chopped garlic (acts as the preservative)
Sausage casing (pork intestines preferred)
How to cook
Get a pan place the sausages in it and add water till the sausages are half covered. Boil the sausages and prick them so that the casings won’t explode. Cook till the water is all evaporated and what remains is the oil from the sausage.
Longganisang Lucban is best eaten hot either in itself as a viand or part of the infamous longsilog(longganisa, sinangag at itlog). Some prefer to dip it in vinegar with garlic though my personal preference is to dip it in brown sugar.
