Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seed
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seed
  • 1 pound lamb leg, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 pound pork shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 pound smoked applewood bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 ounces fresh sage, roughly chopped
  • 2 ounces fresh oregano, roughly chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons salt
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for sauteing
  • Special Equipment: ice pop sticks
Directions

Toast the coriander seed and mustard seed in a small, dry saute pan over low heat until fragrant. Place the toasted seeds in a spice grinder and grind to a powder. Place lamb, pork, and bacon in a large bowl. Add all herbs and seasonings and toss to combine well.

Grind the meat in a meat grinder with a medium die and then chill overnight.

Wrap 1 tablespoon of ground meat around the end of an ice pop stick. Repeat until all meat is used. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Saute lollipops, in batches, until meat is cooked through, about 2 minutes on the first side and 1 minute on the other side. Serve hot.
