How to make Taiwanese sausage with sticky rice
This hotdog-like Taiwanese delicacy is made up of sticky rice and sausages. Let us dive deeper into the ingredients and methods of wrapping sausages in sticky rice.

Inner Layer (Taiwanese sausage)

The making of Taiwanese sausages is similar to, but not exactly the same as most sausages in the world. Taiwan sausage is a kind of Chinese sausage. The sausage stuffing is made by mincing large pieces of pork into small cylindrical pieces (which is different from the small minced meat on braised pork rice), and then mixed with ground meat, alcohol, and various spices before being poured into the tubular casing to create a tube-shaped sausage. (Casing is the material that wraps sausage stuffing and it is usually made from natural animal intestines or artificial collagen fibers)
The minced meat of Taiwan sausage does not contain soy sauce, MSG, or any preservatives. Due to the shorter air-drying time for Taiwanese sausages, it has a juicier and sweeter taste than other Chinese sausages. Although such production details may seem ordinary, they are the indispensable key to good sausages. Therefore, Taiwanese sausages are an extremely important ingredient in Taiwanese sausage with sticky rice.

Outer layer (Sticky rice)

Sticky rice is also known as glutinous rice, and Taiwanese people like to use long grain glutinous rice. In Taiwanese sausage with sticky rice, the sticky rice is made by adding white rice, lard, shallots, salt, and white pepper to glutinous rice. After stirring, the mixed glutinous rice is poured into a tubular casing and steamed for at least 40 minutes. Thus, the sticky rice is able to maintain its tubular shape. The proper cooking time shapes the excellent taste of the sticky rice.
