Ingredients
Servings: meters of sausage
Instructions
  1. First thing, chill the meats in the fridge, sterilize and chill the grinder parts in the fridge. Grinding meat creates heat, so you want the meat and the grinder to be a cool temp, not freezing, just chilled.
  2. Cut the pork belly into cubes that will fit in your meat grinder hopper. Then do the same with the pork shoulder. Remove any tendons or stringy matter.
  3. Mix together the two meats, then add the spices and herbs.
  4. Mix together. Place the meat in the fridge to chill for 2 hours. Assemble your meat grinder with the coarse plate, typically the wagon wheel plate.
  5. Grind the meat with the wagon wheel plate, or what is called a course plate for your model of grinder.
  6. Then in a large bowl, mix with the breadcrumbs. Breadcrumbs added, I did not get the cup measurement.
  7. Mix until well combined, use your hands for this.
  8. Soak the hog casings per instructions on the package. Remove the cutting blade and plate from your grinder. and attach the sausage funnel. Rub some bacon fat or cooking oil on the funnel, slip the end of the wet hog casing over the attachment and pull the casing down the shaft so that it is bunched up at the base. I use a dry casing from a reputable dealer in Phuket.
  9. Tie the starting end of the casing with string, using the slow setting on the grinder, add the meat back to the grinder, fill the casing but do not over fill, any air bubbles, prick with a tooth pick. Work the sausage into the casing and form the casing into a ring as you go. You can leave in a ring or twist and make links or tie with string to make links, up to you. I do not have that ring thing down yet so I just made links.
  10. Store the sausage in the fridge overnight. Then you are ready to cook them as you see fit or freeze for later use.
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I get the meats and casing, overall I will say fair value, but much less than store prices, by a long shot.

Shortcut: Breadcrumbs.

This type of sausage originates in the northeastern area of Thailand, the Isaan region, and Laos and is very popular throughout the north as well. This is a mild sausage, good garlic and black pepper taste. I took lots of photos to show exactly what this is. This version uses a store bought seasoning packet complete with the casings and string.

Instructions
  1. This is the seasoning packet, kit, used for this sausage, it contains everything, you just have to supply the meat. Lobo brand, best brand I have used, instructions are in English as well on the back, including photos.
  2. This is the contents of the kit, there is three packets, salt, rice, seasoning pack is mainly garlic and black pepper. There is also the collagen casings (5) and the strings needed to tie the sausages.
  3. I like to grind meat for Thai sausages as it does need to be quite fatty. This is the 500 grams (1 lb) of pork belly with the skin removed and cut into strips for the grinder. Grinding plate used is the course one, commonly called a wagon wheel.
  4. In a large bowl, add the pork and the contents of the three foil packets, using your hands, mix until sticky, this takes just a few minutes. Divide into approximately 5 equal size portions, I basically make 5 meatballs that are the same size, you can leave them in the same bowl. Wash and dry your hands, important that your hands are dry when handling the casings.
  5. Open the casing packet and unfold the casings and separate them. One end is already tied.
  6. I use a funnel to stuff sausages and the plunger for my meat grinder is what I use to push the meat through the funnel. You can use any method you are familiar with to stuff the casings. Place a casing on the end of the funnel and slide it on all the way to the knotted end. Pick up one portion of the meat and place in the funnel, use your fingers or a plunger from a meat grinder to fill a casing. (I jumped the gun here and stuffed all 5 casings, instead of tying it into the smaller ones before stuffing the next.)
  7. Now with a casing stuffed, lay it on a plate and starting from the knotted end, use the string and tie into 5 smaller links, just wrap the string around and pull tight (do not twist the links). When you get to the open end, give that a twist and tie that off with the string.
  8. Let the sausage sit on the counter for 1 hour (fermenting, then refrigerate until you want to cook them). Cook on a charcoal grill over low heat until cooked through, or bake at 140 C (280 F) for 30 to 40 minutes. Serve with fresh vegetables like cabbage, lettuce, cucumber, carrot.
Recipe Notes

The seasoning packet for this is 37 Baht, and it includes the casing and string. The pork belly will cost about 70 Baht/500 grams. For 5 servings, this is about 63 cents per serving.

Variants: Beef, chicken, and shrimp can be used instead of pork.

Instructions
  1. In a medium size bowl, dissolve the contents of the seasoning pack in the warm water. This is the seasoning pack used.
  2. Add the pork belly to the seasoning mix and blend well until sticky, use your hands for this, takes just a few minutes for this. Shape into 5 equal size balls.
  3. Now for the collagen casing, first, it is used dry, never soak them. I used a funnel when I made these as I have never used casings before. If you are experienced using casings, use the method of your choice. Grease up the funnel tube with vegetable for the first sausage, and fit the casing onto the tube all the way to the knotted end.
  4. Fill the casing with the pork mixture by pressing it into the funnel tube, pierce any air pockets with a pin or toothpick.
  5. Repeat for all 5 casings. Use kitchen string to tie off the ends. Five sausages ready for the grill.
  6. Cook on a charcoal grill over low heat until cooked through, or bake at 140 C (280 F) for 20 minutes. Slice diagonally and serve with sticky rice and vegetables such as cabbage, lettuce, or cucumber. These were grilled, Sai Krok on the top, Sai Oua on the bottom.
Recipe Notes

The seasoning packet for this is 37 Baht, and it includes the casing. The pork belly will cost about 70 Baht/500 grams. For 5 servings, this is about 63 cents per serving.

Variants: Beef, chicken, and shrimp can be used instead of pork. For shrimp, increase to 600 grams and do not use any water, just mix the seasoning packet into coarsely chopped shrimp.

My mother in law loves Chinese Five Spice Chicken, and loves it more when made using pork belly, so this is a slightly different recipe than what is on the spice pack. This is not a secret recipe or an internet recipe, this is a modified recipe based on the pack of spice you can buy in every town. The Lobo brand of spices have instructions in Thai and English on every spice packet I have used from them. I made this on 31 May 2017 and it was very well received by my mother in law, and it is delicious, my comments below. I did not get all the step by step photos so I will be making this again soon, so easy and inexpensive as well.

  1. Prepare the pork belly by slicing into 1 1/2 inch pieces, we used 700 grams. Place the meat in a bowl.
  2. In the bowl of meat, add the 5 Spice Powder. Rub that in with your fingers until all pieces are coated. This photo is just before I added the spice powder.
  3. In a large pot, heat a splash of olive oil then add the garlic and sugar, when the garlic is fragrant, about a minute, add the pork, cook for a few minutes turning a few times. You are browning them, not needing to cook through, that will happen later.
  4. Add the eggs, salt, light and black soy sauces, and bean curd if using, add enough water to nearly cover the eggs, and simmer for an hour. This photo is right after the eggs and water was added.
  5. At 1 hour, the eggs should be a light brown, check for tenderness of the pork, if tender, serve over rice, add some of the broth as well to the rice.
Recipe Notes

Prices can very with pork, if you go with a local vendor at an open market, you are getting fresh and much lower cost. Pork belly at Tesco is 220 Baht/kilo, the pork belly used in this recipe and in the photos, I purchased from an open market, 140 Baht/kilo. For this recipe the pork cost about 105 Baht/700 grams. For 4 servings this is about 77 cents per serving.

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and blanch the pork pieces for a few minutes, this will start the cooking process, after a few minutes, remove the pork with a slotted spoon and set aside, discard the water.
  2. Using a non stick skillet (the slightly rounded one) add the oil and sugar on low heat. When the sugar is dissolved or melted into the oil, add the pork and increase the heat to medium and cook, turning the pieces often to get a light browning on them.
  3. Once browned, reduce heat to a low simmer and add the cooking wine, soy sauces, and the 1 cup of water and stir the pork around a bit then cover and simmer for 45 minutes to an hour until the pork is fork tender, stirring often to prevent burning. Add additional water if the skillet is too dry.
  4. When the pork is tender and if there is a lot of liquid in the skillet, uncover and increase the heat to medium to thicken and reduce the sauce. Then pour into a serving dish, sprinkle the spring onions on the top and serve with rice on the side.
Recipe Notes

The pork belly will cost about 65 Baht/500 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 48 cents per serving.
