'Sausage King' Dies; Good Riddance!

SANTOS LINGUICA WAS THE BEST IN TOWN

STUART ALEXANDER MAY HAVE BEEN CRAZY. HE MAY HAVE KILLED THREE FOOD INSPECTORS IN COLD BLOOD. HE DIED MONDAY OF AN APPARENT SUICIDE, BUT DAMNIT, DID HE MAKE SOME GOOD LINGUICA!

I've heaped scorn on Stuart Alexander for five years, not only because he gunned down three food inspectors as they ran down nearby Washington Avenue in San Leandro, CA, but because his incarceration effectively ended the production of the finest linguica I've ever eaten.

The linguica was perfectly spiced and lacked oily fillers that other mass-produced linguica possessed. For a kid who hated huge chunks of fat in his linguica, Santos Linguica Factory was nirvana.

In the five years since the end of Santos Linguica, I've yet to find a better sausage. During my trip last year to Boston, I discovered a few contenders, but who cares, how could I consistently enjoy linguica from 3,000 miles away?

I've hated what Stuart Alexander did to those innocent inspectors for years and for the loss of my beloved linguica.

HERE'S MY FAVORITE LINGUICA RECIPE. IT'S TO DIE FOR!:

1 lb. linguica
1 cup Red wine
1 onion
water

Cover the whole linguica in a medium saucepan with water. Let boil for 20 minutes.

When boiled drain water and replace with red wine and sliced onions and let simmer for 40 minutes until the wine has reduced and soaked into the linguica.

Place linguica in a sesame seed roll and cover with onions.

Check out Goulart's Sausage Company in San Jose, Ca. The closest linguica you will come across compared to Santos. I grew up on Santos Linguica and hated what happened. I searched and tasted all types of linguica and by far Goulart's is the best around.

We lived in San Leandro. We ate Santos linguica for atleast 70 years. It was really awful what happened. The grandson was a problem. I have tried Amaral, Silva, Moniz, Neto, Palacios none campare in any way what so ever to Santos. Tutti had a secret. My grandmother used to fry it, then sauteed bell peppers in the renderings and put it all in french bread. Thanks for the suggestion about Goularts. Leal

I lived in San Leandro all my growing years. My father was born and raised there and died there in 2000 at age 77.
In all those years, we were dedicated to eating Santos Linguica from the recipe of 'Linguica Guy's' father. We had tried others, on ocassion, but there was none better than Santos,in our humble opinions.
Since the closing of Santos, I have tried many brands of linguica and finally came across Goulart's before I found this blog. I am happy to recommend them. If you liked Santos Linguica, you'll be happy to find Goulart's.
I go to their San Jose location and buy many pounds at a time. You can view their store at the under construction web site:
www.goularts.com
They sell 4 types of linguica -
2 hot and 2 mild. My family likes the mild. They also sell linguica patties, torresmos,(a marinated pork), also a Portuguese version of chorizo (chunky style) and bacon. I believe, they also sell a blood sausage, too. Try them - I think you'll be pleasantly happy with their brand. If only they sold it more widely, as I am about to leave the San Jose area!!!

Goulart's Sausage Company
1277 East Saint John Street Ste. C
San Jose, CA 95116

408-279-8130- Office
408-297-9000 - Fax
They only take CASH & checks - NO
CREDIT/DEBIT cards!

If you live in or near San Leandro, you can buy it at Porter's Market (www.portersmarket.com) way down in the Washington Manor area, at
15056 FARNSWORTH. Call first to see if they have it in stock.

NOTE: If you have never put linquica on the BBQ, you must try it at least once. Pop a couple of fork tines into the casing first, so you don't get spattered. It's a big treat!!!
Hope this is helpful - I don't mind sharing my info with my fellow linguica officionados, whether Portuguese or not.
