A pork sausage made with the flavors of Thai Green Curry. Making sausage for the first time can be intimidating, but the results are very rewarding. After you make sausages once, you will be hooked!

  • 6 scallions
  • 8 green Thai chilies
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 1 tablespoon coriander
  • 2 teaspoons anise seed or fennel seed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped lemongrass
  • 1 bunch basil
  • 1 bunch cilantro - stems and roots included
  • 2 limes zest and juice
  • 3 splashes fish sauce
  • 4 pounds pork shoulder
  • 3 strips bacon
  • 2 cups sweetened coconut flakes


  • 1
    For the first 11 ingredients, prep and place in food processor. Make a paste and set aside.
  • 2
    Process the bacon to a paste.

    I bought a 4 lb boston butt with the bone in. I cut it into 1 inch cubes and pulsed in the food processor in small batches until a coarse grind was achieved. If you want to skip this step, you could buy ground pork, or ask your butcher to grind the pork shoulder for you. Or if you have a meat grinder, that works too.
  • 4
    Mix the curry paste, bacon paste, ground pork, and coconut flakes until combined. season with salt and pepper, (especially if you went light with the fish sauce).
  • 5
    At this point, you could use the mix as loose sausage and it would be delicious! If you cooked it you could serve it with jasmine rice. But you will be much happier if you hang in there and stuff the sausages.
  • 6
    To find sausage casing, ask your local butcher - they are very helpful!
  • 7
    I used a professional sausage stuffer for this job, but in my early days of sausage making I tried many different ways. The stand mixer attatchments work well, but I have found that a pastry bag and a good friend make quick work of the stuffing process!

    Grill these sausages nice and slow until golden and delicious! I served in a sandwich with green peppers, cucumber, and a mayo sriracha spread.

More About This Recipe

  • Adventurous eating and cooking is what I live for!

    That’s why I am so happy to write recipes for Taste For Adventure on Tablespoon. When they asked me to do a roundup of my favorite adventurous recipes from the web, I jumped at the opportunity. I don’t get to show my love often to all the hard-working, adventurous bloggers out there!

    Some of these are adventurous because of modern techniques, some because of ethnic ingredients, and others because of the cuts of meat used. I hope you all check out the awesome bloggers on this list – and maybe go on a little food adventure yourself!

    Here are my Top 10 Adventurous Recipes, in no particular order.

    1. Tacos with Beef Tongue

    A few months back, fellow Taste for Adventure blogger Macheesmo made some tasty looking Tacos with Beef Tongue. This is a pretty classic preparation in Mexico, but you’re probably not going to find it at your local taco place!

    2. Yellow Tomato Sorbet

    Over at Ideas in Food, Aki and Alex post about their crazy culinary adventures. Most of the stuff there is way too involved for even me to try, but I read – jealously wishing I had the time, equipment, and knowledge to pull off what they do. Here is an interesting flavor combination: Yellow Tomato Sorbet.

    3. Pasta with Pork Blood

    Hunter, Angler, Gardener, Cook serves up lots of meals with animals he caught himself. Talk about having a taste for adventure! Here he makes Pasta with Pork Blood.

    4. Pancetta

    For a little bit of self-promotion, I have to mention the Pancetta I made about a year ago. Curing your own meats is very rewarding, and pancetta is a nice entry into that type of cooking.

    4. Poori Bhaji

    On the blog What’s for Lunch Honey, Meeta cooks up food from all over the world. Her for Poori Bhaji recipe has some amazing looking fried flatbreads.

    5. Jerk Fried Flounder

    My friend Peggy from My Fiance Likes it, so it Must be Good comes up with super creative fusion recipes that are totally my style. I want to make this Jerk Fried Flounder right now!

    6. Menudo

    I have always wanted to cook with tripe, the stomach lining from a cow. At [No Recipes], Marc has made a beautifully deep red Menudo that might just give me an excuse to try it this weekend!

    7. Turducken

    I guess I could sneak one more of my own recipes in here. I made a Turducken this past Thanksgiving, and it really exceeded my (and everyone else’s) expectations!

    8. Durian

    Durian is considered one of the stinkiest fruits on the planet. Check out these Durian Tarts on Indonesia Eats.

    9. Homemade Sausage

    Here’s a very clear step-by-step guide posted on Simply Recipes, about making Homemade Sausage, one of my favorite adventurous things to do!
