What Spices Are in Sausage?

Sausages are versatile meats. Sausage can have a sweet flavor, like maple, apple, or blueberry. Other sausages are savory or spicy, seasoned with red pepper flakes, sage, coriander, or simply black pepper. We love sweet sausages for breakfast, but we think a savory sausage tastes better on the grill.  

Since grilled sausage tastes great on its own, less is more when it comes to seasoning. You want to make sure the seasoning does not cover up that delicious meat flavor.

Crown National Sausage Seasonings

South Africans love to grill sausages even more than Americans do! Our Crown National sausage seasonings are inspired by the spices in South African boerewors, or “farmer’s sausage.” Boerewors is a spiral beef sausage cooked over a flame, chopped into smaller pieces, and served on a bun.

Our boerewors seasoning tastes delicious on brats, hot dogs, beef sausages, and ground beef.

Ingredients in Our Beef Sausage Seasoning

When you bite into a piece of beef sausage seasoned with Ouma’s seasoning, coriander is the first spice you’ll taste.  

Coriander seed, one of the spices in curry powder, has a “warm” flavor. It’s not “spicy” on its own – red pepper is the throat-burning element of curry. You’ll also find hints of sugar, onion, and other spices in this seasoning.

Our Favorite Homemade Sausage Recipe

Preparing your sausages for the grill using Ouma’s sausage seasoning is simple. This recipe serves about 10 people at ½ lb of meat per person.

You Will Need: 

  • 5 lb. sausages of your choice (beef, pork, turkey)
  • 2.2 oz peach chutney
  • 1 c. water
  • ¼ pack Ouma’s Boerewors Seasoning

Directions: 

Combine all seasoning ingredients into a bowl. Place sausages on the grill over indirect heat (direct heat may cause burning or uneven cooking).

Remove the lid, season the other side, flip the sausages, cover, and cook for 5 more minutes.

Measure the temperature of the sausages. If they are not at least 160 degrees F, cook over direct heat for about 2 minutes. Flip and cook again for 2 minutes. Remove from grill and enjoy your delicious sausages!

Putting Sausage Seasoning on Ground Beef

You can think of seasoning salt as a “gateway” spice option. We also offer many other spices for more adventurous folk! South Africans love to add coriander, one of the spices in curry, to their meat when grilling. You’ll find coriander in many of our seasoning mixes.

Several others have chili flavoring. We carry several different seasoning mixes to liven up your sausage, burgers, or beef jerky. 

Pork Sausage Seasoning Salt

Technically, no, they do not. You can think of spices and seasoning packets like medicine – they won’t go bad, but they will lose their potency. If you were to use a seasoning packet that expired last year, you won’t have to call your friends and family to apologize for making them sick.

But...you might need to call them and apologize for making the worst-tasting barbecue ever. And maybe go out and buy some new spices.
