Thai I-Saan Food Recipe: Sai Grok I-saan (I-saan Sausage)

Sai Grok I-saan
(I-saan Sausage)


2 pounds minced pork
2 pounds pork casing
1 cup pork fat
10 cloves garlic
20 Thai white peppers
3 coriander roots
1 / 2 cup cooked sticky rice
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. salt
1 / 2 tsp. sugar
15 strings (4 inches long each one)

Fresh vegetables as you like:

Scallion, cabbage, red chili peppers, young galangal or the pickle galangal will be great, cucumber or string beans

Cooking Instructions: 

1. Clean casing very well. Ground coriander roots, garlic and Thai pepper together.

2. Mix minced pork, cooked sticky rice, coriander, garlic, and Thai pepper altogether. Knead it with hand.

3. Add soy sauce and salt.

4. Now, put the mix in to pork casing. Tie the string at the length you want. Usually we leave 1 inch long and tie the casing.

5. Put something to protect it from the flies over top like white cloth filter and leave it under the sun for 1 day. Then leave it inside the house for 2 days. The sausage will get sour and ready to cook.

Grill or fry when you cook. The taste will be perfect sour after leaving it for 3 days total. Serve with fresh vegetable above and pickled ginger. Sweet sauce or tomato sauce will be your choices. I have heard of collagen casing or fake casing. Anybody knows about it? Well, you can also use that stuff but I don’t know where to get it. 🙂 If you want to know other Thai food recipe, you can leave me a request recipe here. Then, I will try to publish it the next day. Don’t hesitate! 🙂
