Lorna did it again. She amazed the cooking club by showing us how to make Taiwanese Pork Sausage. The Taiwanese Pork Sausage was fragranted with cinnamon. It is not the regular cinnamon powder we normally used for baking. Lorna bought the cinnamon powder from Chinese herbal shop (known as ‘yoke kwai’ in Cantonese). It is quite an expensive herb as two teaspoons cost $7.
The Taiwanese Pork Sausage can be baked, pan fried or grilled. The photo below is the baked version.
- 13 lbs port butt (ask the butcher to cut 12 lbs into small cubes and the remaining pound minced)
- 2 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 cup rice wine
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
- 4 1/2 tablespoons salt
- 1/2 cup garlic powder
- sausage skin (enough for 60 sausages)
- 1 to 2 tablespoons of Taiwanese Soy Sauce Paste (optional)
Lorna bought the sausage skin which is the pig small intestines from this meat shop in North Burnaby.
- Supreme Meat Company Ltd
- 1725 McDonald Ave
- North Burnaby
The sausage skin is preserved in salt and has to be rinsed thoroughly before use. Any remaining sausage skin can be preserved in salt and stored in the refrigerator for a few months.

Marinate the meat with the sugar, salt, garlic powder, cinnamon powder and rice wine overnight in the refrigerator.

Taiwanese sausages, my childhood food. What a great dish to try making by hand!
in your picture with all the ingredients, there is soy sauce. does this recipe call for soy sauce? if yes, how much? thanks.
Hi Runa Lin,
Lorna did not use the soy sauce paste (a thick and sweet version of soy sauce) in her recipe, not knowing if there is MSG in it. She told me you can add one or two tablespoons of it to the recipe.
Where do u buy the sausage skin?I live in singapore and i couldn’t get the skins anywhere.
Hi Kan, I’m not sure where can you get it in Singapore. You can try to ask your local butchers.

Hi Kan, I looking for sausage machine. do u have any contact in singapore?
maybe i can help you. i a sausages maker
Hi, just wondering what temperature should they be dried in?
Hi Chien, we just dried the sausages in a cool airy place, somewhere away from the warm kitchen.
What is the cup size used?
do u mixed with soy bean? what is the measurement?
Hi Tay, the cup size is the regular measuring cup size. The Taiwanese Soy Sauce Paste is optional and the recipe only requires one to two tablespoons. In fact, we omitted the soy sauce when we made the sausage in the community kitchen.

Do you know where to buy sausage casing in Malaysia or Singapore? You may email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Looks great, i will definitely try it.
What is wind dry? is this a MUST? and how to do so?
Hi Huini, you can hang the sausages in a airy part of the house. In Chinese cookery; the wind can preserve the meat’s ‘umami’.
Hi, can someone tell me where I can get sausage skin from Singapore or Malaysia? or even from Taiwan?
Your help is appreciated!
@Meiling – from Taiwan, you can try Kuohua Trading (on 3 Rd) in Richmond:
Thanks for your reply! Is this Taiwan’s address? it looks like canada address.
Meiling – they’re on #3 Road, just about a block north of the Superstore, on the same side of the road. Click on link below:
