Chinese Sausages with Mustard


Whether it's from a bottle or in powder form, English mustard packs heat -- making it the perfect accompaniment for sweet Chinese sausage.


  • 1 pound Chinese duck liver sausages

  • ½ cup English mustard, preferably Colman's, for serving


  1. Add water to a depth of 2 inches in a large stockpot. Set a metal or bamboo steamer in pot.

  2. Arrange sausages in a single layer in steamer. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to maintain a simmer. Steam sausages, turning once, until fork-tender and heated through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer sausages to a cutting board. Cut each sausage at an angle into 2-inch-long pieces. Serve warm with mustard on the side.

Cook's Notes

There are two main types of Chinese sausage: one made with duck meat and another, used here, made from the meat and liver. The latter tends to be darker and may have a thin paraffin coating. Gently rub coating off with a kitchen towel after steaming.
