Beef Sausage

1 lb. lean ground beef

1 Tbsp. Kosher salt

2 Tbsp. fresh ground black pepper

2 Tbsp. Italian seasoning

1 Tbsp. rubbed sage

1 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 cup dry red wine

Use a BIG bowl. Throw everything in the bowl. Mix together real good, using both hands, for about five minutes. Form into a ball, place in a plastic bag, seal and place in the refrigerator over night. Form into patties and fry in olive oil over medium heat, covered, so they don't dry out. Makes four good-sized patties.
