Very delicious even without the appropriate amount of lemongrass and without the casing on hand. I just prepared little meatballs. Want to try your recipe also the proper way.
Found your blog after often eating in Hamburg/Germany
at Indochine(chain from Singapore) restaurant Laotian pork sausage. Since I live in Brussels now I wanted to prepare this dish for my family. I plan to try also your other sausages. In the restaurant there served it with a super delicious mango coconut sauce/dip. I'm still searching that recipe. My husband, 7 year old son and myself give you already a 5 star rating. Big thank you for sharing your excellent recipe.
