Q.

Should lamb merguez be stuffed in a pork casing?

A.

Because of its origins in Islamic North Africa, traditionally merguez sausage is pork free and made from lamb, often blended with beef, stuffed in a lamb casing. However, it is enjoyed in several countries outside the Islamic world (particularly France), and may sometimes contain pork fat back or be stuffed in a pork casing.

Marx Foods currently offers two varieties of lamb merguez: our 100% lamb merguez sausage is completely pork-free, all natural, and stuffed into the more traditional (and smaller) lamb casings.  We also sell pork casing merguez sausage filled with a blend of lamb and beef that is a similar serving size to most other sausages.
