What is Tasso?
A Cajun specialty, tasso is a highly spiced and smoked piece of pork shoulder that’s mainly used as a seasoning or accent flavor in soups and bean, egg, pasta, and vegetable dishes.
Due to the spices used when producing Tasso, it has that familiar hot and spicytaste that is common among Cajun foods. Coming from the fatty portion of the pig, this processed meat is full of flavor. The cooking process also allows this to have a heavy smoke taste. Its smell is likewise smoky and peppery.
Tasso ham is a heavily smoked meat that is almost synonymous with Cajun/Creole cuisine. It is a product of the rich culinary mélange found in Louisiana. Although this smoked meat is similar in many ways to the French originating andouille, the term Tasso is Spanish in derivation. It comes from the Spanish word tasajo which means a slice of cured dried meat.
