Quick Soya Sauce Sausages

Soya Sauce Sausages can be an easy accompaniment to any meal; Asian or western! Here’s how to get this done simply and effortlessly!

Quick Soya Sauce Sausages are exactly that; thinly sliced sausages cooked in soya sauce with a touch of sugar. I prepared this recipe out of desperation; I really wanted to have a form of meat-protein on the dinner table but really had no energy to unearth a chicken from the deep-freeze. 

Sausage

I have used Bratwurst in this recipe, since that’s what I had in the freezer. Please feel free to substitute with any sausages you might have in the freezer. Though I would caution against using ‘hot dogs’ for this. Nothing wrong with hot dogs; I grew up on them. But I find that they don’t have quite the right fat content to get the flavours just right for this dish. The bratwurst I bought is from Phoon Huat/Redman and had a delicious marbling of pork fat within the sausage. 

You can use a spicier alternative for this, such as chorizo. Salami might work too, though I have to say I haven’t tried it so you’ll have to tell me how it turns out.

Sweet

The sweet element here is very crucial to help bring the dish to light. I have used dark brown Muscovado sugar. I love the treacly, molasses flavour of this brand of sugar. If you can’t get your hands on this, try cooking with a little honey. You could add regular white sugar but that’ll end up sweetening the dish without adding any depth to the flavour. 

An oven alternative

There is a way to get this dish done without the stove, though, if you’re in a pinch. Or don’t quite feel like sauteeing anything. To make this in the toaster oven, or regular oven, you can start by using cocktail sausages. You can use a regular one that has been thinly sliced, but it’ll affect the cooking time in the oven. Preheat the oven to 200 Degrees Celsius. Wash and place the sausages in a bowl. In another bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of light soya sauce, 1 tablespoon dark soya sauce and 2 Teaspoons of honey. Mix together to combine; this should form a thick paste. If you don’t wish to use honey, you can use dark brown sugar. Light brown sugar is not recommended; it’s just as good as white sugar. Pour this mixture onto the sausages, and place into the preheated oven for 20 minutes (if using cocktail sausages). Serve warm!
