1. Place the pork, Aleppo pepper, chili powder, garlic, salt, black pepper, oregano, cumin,
cloves, and coriander into a bowl, and lightly toss the pork with the seasonings until
thoroughly blended. Cover the bowl, and refrigerate the meat, your meat grinder's head
assembly, and grinder hopper for 1 hour.
2. Fill a large mixing bowl with ice cubes, and place a smaller metal bowl in the ice cubes
to catch the ground meat. Assemble the chilled meat grinder, and grind the pork and
seasonings using a coarse cutting plate. Return ground meat to refrigerator for 30
minutes. Lightly stir the ground pork with the vinegar and water until thoroughly mixed,
form into patties, and refrigerate overnight, covered, to let flavors develop.
3. Heat vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over medium-low heat, and pan-fry the patties until
browned and no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 8 minutes per side.

Cook's Notes
It is very important to keep the meat very cold throughout the grinding process. Do not
reduce refrigeration time.
This recipe will yield a mildly hot Mexican chorizo designed to suit most people. For a
spicier chorizo, add 5-15 crushed pequin chilies, depending on desired heat level.
Editor's Note
Aleppo peppers come from Syria and have a fruity, medium spiciness. Find them at
specialty spice shops or Middle Eastern grocery stores.
