Ingredients

5 pounds of ground beef (It must be ground beef, not ground round or sirloin)
5 round tsp. of Mortons Tender Quick Salt, found in cooking aisle, in blue bag.
(DO NOT USE ANYTHING OTHER THAN THIS TYPE OF SALT)
2 1/2 tsp. whole mustard seed
2 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. liquid smoke


Thoroughly mix all of the ingredients together. Mix once a day for 3 days. It is important to mix very well, otherwise the meat will spoil.


On the 4th day, preheat oven to 175º F.


Roll the mixture into 5 even logs. Place on elevated wire racks on a cookie sheet.


Bake for 8 hours, turning once at 4 hours.


Let cool. Once cool, slice and serve.


Can be wrapped in foil and stored in freezer.

I love making gifts for the holidays and I can't wait to try this out this year!
