Mett – Raw Ground Pork


Mett is a German raw ground pork preparation, spiced with salt and pepper, sometimes garlic, ground caraway and raw onions; but the recipe is well known throughout the Netherlands and Belgium as well. Mett is usually served as a spread for bread, but can also be made into a dried sausage.

This was a trip down memory lane for me. My parents used to make this occasionally, and on at least one occasion that I remember they made the dried pork sausages as well. I did make a change to the traditional recipe. Raw onions give me heartburn, so I cooked them first.
