Oriental Pork Sausage
Oriental pork sausage can be found in Asiatic stores. What makes it unusual is the addition of dill which is a wonderful herb usually added in Poland to a chicken soup or to salmon in England. Many sausages include parsley or cilantro, but this one shines because of the combination of dill and lemongrass. Lemongrass has a deep citrusy aroma that can typically be found in Thai cooking and other Asian cuisines. If you can't find lemongrass, you can substitute lemon or lime juice in its place. Just keep in mind that the citrus won't be able to fully substitute the flavor of lemongrass.
