General Tao Cocktail Sausages

  • Preparation 15 MIN
    Cooking 15 MIN

Two things we’re crazy about at RICARDO headquarters: anything drizzled in General Tao sauce and cocktail sausages (maybe that’s a stretch). We combined the two ingredients to see what would happen and found a real wiener!



  1. In a small bowl, combine half the maple syrup (6 tbsp/90 ml) with the vinegar, soy sauce, cornstarch, sambal oelek and sesame oil. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over high heat, bring the remaining maple syrup (6 tbsp/90 ml), the ginger and garlic to a boil. Simmer until the mixture begins to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Add the first syrup mixture. Bring back to a boil, whisking constantly. Set the sauce aside.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté the sausages in the oil for 2 minutes. Add the sauce, cover and simmer for about 5 minutes or until it thickens and thoroughly coats the sausages.
  4. Place on a serving platter. Garnish with the cilantro and sesame seeds.


The sauce can be made 2 days in advance.
