IMG_7376my hubby loves sausages.. but you really don’t get good ones in beijing, plus i’m not a big fan of store bought sausages
(the fats.. the preservatives.. u know..)
(谁知道有多少肥肉。。防腐剂。。you know 啦)

Recipe adapted & translated from 百度百科

*as original recipe did not indicate quantity, i have indicated my quantity in green

chicken drumsticks *i used 10
sausage casings (i.e. skin for sausage)
fresh basil
coarsely grounded black pepper
white pepper
olive oil (do not recommend omitting as it can enhance the tenderness of the chicken)
* all seasoning to be added according to personal preference


鸡腿 *我用了10只

橄榄油 (不建议省略,可增加鸡肉的滑嫩口感)


IMG_7136de-bone and de-skin (optional) drumstick and remove tendons. chop into pieces that can be processed by food processor
use basil leaves (removing stems) and mince garlic and ginger

IMG_7134wash sausage casings carefully with water ~ piping water into the casing also allow you to check if there’s any holes in the casing

IMG_7133add chicken into food processor and process into paste. add in basil, ginger, garlic, salt, white pepper and grounded black pepper
then add in olive oil and blend well

IMG_7137cover piping tube with casing, leaving a bit of tip at the end and then tie a dead knot. start piping chicken meat into casing

IMG_7138tie strings at intervals of the sausage according to desired length once you have piped in all the chicken meat

prick holes into sausage using needles and air it for a while

IMG_7148bring some water to boil in a large saucepan, maintaining the water temperature between 70 – 80 degrees C

IMG_7149put in sausage and cook for c. 8 mins or until the entire sausage has turned white

IMG_7150cooked sausages

IMG_7375add some oil into frying pan, and fry sausage till golden brown (or you can grill or slice to small pieces according to personal preference)

*sausage can be frozen or chilled; if they are frozen, ensure that they are cooked in water till soft before frying/grilling to prevent sausage from splitting

IMG_7377this one split…

 Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

– i made 10 sausages in total

– after boiling, i cooled them, packed in 3s, and froze them. it was brought back to room temperature before frying

– i bought my sausage casings from 帝一鸣食品.. still had a lot left from one pack after making the first batch of sausage.. so i suggest increasing ingredients quantity if you are making this
肠衣是帝一鸣食品买滴。。。 这次开了一袋肠衣。。 做了10 根香肠后,还剩余好长。。好长的肠衣没用上。。。。所以建议下次份量要做多一些哈

    How to you pipe the meat into casing?

    • Victoria Bakes (March 11, 2015)

      Hi, usually when you buy the casing, they will provide a funnel. You just have to stretch your casing around the tinier end of the funnel, then push and stuff filling from the wider end of the funnel
