Richard.Blaine's picture
This week I am making a Cambodian dish called Kwah Ko! Some call it Twah Ko but it is the same thing! This is a Cambodian beef sausage that is dried and sours slightly but is balanced by some sugar in the recipe as well. In Cambodia the sausage is called Sach Krawh which is beef and fat, basically it means sausage. I am making this sausage recipe case less and cured rather than the traditional air dried I am using curing salt and going case less because of the versatility of this sausage. The recipe can be found below. Enjoy!
Ingredients
  Ground chuck 6 Pound (Coarse/rough)
  Morton's tender quick salt 2 Teaspoon (1 +/- Tsp. per lbs of beef)
  Cooked rice 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Dried lemongrass/Finely chopped lemongrass 2 Tablespoon
  Crushed red chili flakes/Cayenne powder 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Brown sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (which offers balance between the sweet and sour nature of this sausage)
  Hoisin sauce 2 Tablespoon
  Fish sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Lime zest/Kaffir lime powder/ finely chopped curry leaves/kaffir lime leaf-1 tbsp 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Dried galangal 2 Tablespoon (that has been toasted in a skillet for some good smoky accents)
  Garlic granules 2 Tablespoon
  Cooking rice wine 2 Tablespoon (as souring agent)
