Guinea Grinders

½ lb Ground Pork or Sausage
½ lb Ground Beef
1 Bell Pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped (Leek & green onions)
4 cloves fresh garlic, pressed
1 heaping tbsp whole fennel seed
1 tbsp salt
1 rounded tsp black pepper
1 rounded tsp oregano
1 tbsp Sugar
12 oz tomato paste
Six Kaiser Rolls
6 Slices Mozzarella Cheese

In a deep pan, saute onions & garlic cook the meat.
Break it up as it cooks, and keep it moving; cook it thoroughly without browning.
Drain excess fat.
Add garlic, onion, fennel, bell pepper, and spices.
The most important flavor is the fennel!
Saute’ lightly until the onions are barely tender.
In the meantime, prepare the kaiser rolls.
Preheat the oven.
Add tomato paste to the ingredients in the pan.
Stir in 3/4 cup water and then add a little sugar to cut down on acidity.
(Alternately, use milk or wine. The milk will allow you to cut out some of the sugar; the wine will allow you to cut out some of the salt)
Let the ingredients in the pan go on a low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally during the process.
Remove pan from heat, and distribute the filling among the barrel grinders. Place a slice of cheese over each grinder, and arrange them on a cookie sheet.
Bake as above, and serve after allowing to cool for 10 minutes.
Guinea Grinders store well in the refrigerator kept in individual sandwich bags. They last for two days while maintaining full flavor, and they freeze well.

Enjoy these wonderful sandwiches!

These turned out great!!! They are now on my family’s list of sandwich nite favorites! Good recipe!


What is the measurement supposed to be where there is an “A” with a funny mark over it?

I have seen this in other recipes posted on here.

Seems someone is messing with stuff.

It’s some kind of “glinch” that appears in several recipes since the transfer of the new site. Just IGNORE the "A"s. If the recipe reads “A1/2 pound”… it should read “1/2 pound”.
