Thai Sai Ua

Want to try something different? Let me introduce you to Thailand’s Sai Ua. This sausage is really a taste of the exotic with bold and fresh ingredients to tantalize your taste buds.

Sai Ua is a northern Thai sausage where it’s names literally means “Stuffed Intestines”. It is quite possibly one of the most flavorful sausages I’ve ever eaten as this sausage utilizes some very regional ingredients that give it it’s distinctive flavor. A few of the ingredients that are added are: fish sauce, kafir lime leaves, shrimp paste, galangal, and lemon grass. These ingredients make the Sai Ua an umami packed flavor bomb that can only be described as a Thai curry in a sausage. Talk about amazing!!

Follow basic sausage preparation practices when making this sausage.
  1. Clean and Sanitize all of your equipment.
  2. Keep your meat and grinder parts super cold (below 34F)
  3. Any liquid that is added to the mince needs to be ice cold
  4. Mix your very chilled meat and seasonings till the mince becomes very tacky
  5. Stuff the mince into sausage casings and prick out any air pockets
  6. Cook till the internal temperature reaches 155F

    would you recommend adding nondairy milk powder to this to help as binder and juiciness? tbh, everytime i’ve had this at the restaurants, it tends to be too dry and crumbly.

      You could. That would help with the texture and retain more moisture.. If you do it be sure to let me know how it turned out..
