British Original Sausages
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
with the Family
From What’s Pide, a restaurant where we had lunch yesterday, I purchased several packages of frozen sausages in different varieties to make at home.
Starting here with the British Original Sausages (as listed on the menu) aka Dai Billington’s Sausages (as written on the label).
This marks only the 3rd time that I can recall encountering actual handmade sausages in Korea, previously at a Czech pub (see 3.333 Czech Pub Praha Special) and at a South African restaurant (see 3.311 South African Meat Platter), not counting ones that I made myself (see 1.193 English Bangers).
Ideally, I would’ve made the sausages into bangers & mash, as at the restaurant, but I didn’t have peas and didn’t feel like making gravy.
Instead, I just served them with sauerkraut and spicy mustard.
The sausages were good. The casings, grilled to golden brown, provided proper snap. The minced pork within was nicely seasoned – very mild and balanced, like a traditional English-style sausage – with the taste and texture of actual meat, not the artificial crap that comprises local “sausages.” I should buy lots more and keep them on ice.
