pronounced: soo-juke
aka: sujuk, sucuk, soujouk, soudjouk
A dry, spicy sausage made of ground beef specially seasoned and cured using old world recipes.
What is sujuk?
Sujuk, also "sucuk" and soudjouk is a dry, spicy sausage in Turkish, Bulgarian and Armenian cuisine eaten from the Balkans to the Middle East and Central Asia.
Sujuk consists of ground meat (usually beef, but pork is used in non-Muslim countries and horse meat in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan[1]), with various spices including cumin, sumac, garlic, salt, and red pepper, fed into a sausage casing and allowed to dry for several weeks. It can be more or less spicy; it is fairly salty and has a high fat content.
How is sujuk eaten?
Sujuk may be eaten cooked (when raw, it is very hard and stiff). It is often cut into slices and cooked without additional oil, its own fat being sufficient to fry it. At breakfast, it is used in a way similar to bacon or spam. It is fried in a pan, often with eggs (e.g. as breakfast in Egypt), accompanied by a hot cup of sweet black tea. Sujuk is sometimes cooked with haricot bean or incorporated into pastries at some regions in Turkey. In Bulgaria, raw, sliced sujuk is often served as an appetizer with rakia or other high alcoholic drinks. In Lebanon, cooked sliced sujuk is made into sandwiches with garlic sauce and tomato.

In my opinion, the flavor of this Sujuk is overpowered with garlic with cinnamon. To enhance the flavor, you will need to compare with Hungarian, Polish, Portugues and Italian sausages and salamis, they all use the garlic and spices but their products are milder with more meat flavor.

Excellent product. This soujuk reminds me of my passed family days when my father(Antranig) would make it at home along with the basterma. I will be a long time customer.
Suggestion: Your web page for the 1/2 pound of soujuk shows 5-6 pieces(links). I believe that the 1/2 pound really comprises 2 pieces. Minor point.

Steve from Georgia says:
"The basturma is fabulous. I like it with eggs and toast for breakfast. Though I prefer to to slice my own as I like a thicker cut, I will certainly continue to shop with this establishment. Online service was easy and fast. Thanks."
