  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.


  1. Delicious and very easy to put together! I doubled this recipe for a potluck dinner, and it was all gone at the end of the evening. I substituted some dried parsley flakes for the fresh cilantro but otherwise, I made the recipe as written. Very tasty, and I will certainly be making this again!

  2. What a great taste! The sauce is my new ‘go to’ for stir fries, meatballs and anything else I can use if for! Merci et joyeux fetes!!
