Thai Steamed Pork Sausage ( Mu Yor )


These are some of the most flavorsome sausages you can eat, best of all, because you make them yourself, you can ensure only the best meat goes into them. In Thailand we make these wrapped in banana leaves, but you can also steam them in tinfoil like we've done here. They can be eaten hot or cold, when serving, its normal to cut them into slices.

500 gms Pork Mince
2 Tablespoon Pork Fat
1/2 Teaspoons Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Level Tablespoon Black Pepper
100 gms Crushed Ice
25 gms Garlic
A Food Processor/Blender

1. Put the pork mince and fat into the blender, add the garlic, sugar, salt and pepper and blend together until the meat is smooth.
2. Crush the ice, if you don't have an ice crusher, place it in a bag, wrap a towel around it and bash it with a rolling pin to break it up.
3. Add the cruched ice to the mix and blend it until the ice is thoroughly mixed into the pork. As the sausage cooks the ice crystals melts creating a spongy texture in the sausage.
4. Roll the pork into large sausage shapes, you may find it easier to put a large lump of the meat onto tinfoil and roll the foil around the sausage. They should be wrapped completely in the foil before steaming. If you can get banana leaves, roll them in those, and tie with twine.
5. Steam in a Chinese steamer for 20 minutes.

Serve With
Fragrant Rice
Green Vegetables

i leave in thailand, ubon Ratchathani
thank you for manu mu yor.
ชั้นต้องทำงานภาษา E เกี่ยวกับเรื่องหมูยอ
ฉันขอบคุณ ที่คุณ สร้างเว็ปนี้ขึ้นมา
thank you very much .....


I was so excited when I found this recipe for mu yor-- I love mu yor! Thank you so much. Everything came out fine--except that it was exceedingly salty. I followed your recipe closely, but actually used less salt and pepper than you listed, since it seemed to be so much when I measured it out. I was wondering if maybe "3 Tablespoons Salt and 2 Tablespoons Black Pepper" could have been typos?

Anyhow, I love the idea of making your own mu yor, with only the best ingredients :)


I do apologise for this, its completely wrong in several ways, the salt should have been pork fat (and that was the Kg equivalent), only a little salt is needed, garlic was missing.
The above is the ingredients according to my mother, I'll check it again when I next make it.


Thank you for the modified recipe. I am making it as we speak, and look forward to it! :) I have fond memories of eating "guay jup" with mu yor as a child in Ubon. mmmmmm.... I don't suppose you have any recipes for "guay jup"? (The traditional kind.)


Do you have any recipies for Issan Sausage or Sai Oaha, not sure of spelling but from Chiang Mai.
Thankyou Jao
