  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground pork, cooked rice, minced garlic, fish sauce, soy sauce, palm sugar, ground coriander, ground cumin, ground white pepper, and chili flakes. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  • Soak the casings in warm water for about 15 minutes to soften them.
  • Take a handful of the pork mixture and stuff it into the casing, making sure to fill it evenly. Tie off the ends of the casing to secure the sausage.

  • Preheat your grill or a skillet over medium heat.
  • Once heated, place the sausages on the grill or skillet and cook for about 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until they are cooked through and nicely browned.
  • Remove the sausages from the heat and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  • Serve Sai krok Isan with sticky rice and fresh vegetables of your choice. Enjoy!
