Growing up in Korea, one of my favourite lunchbox menus was this Korean style sausage stir fry.

Typically Korean style sausage stir fry is made with Korean style Vienna sausages and colourful vegetables such as bell peppers (capsicum). In Korea, we call this Sausage Yachae Bokkeum (세지 채볶음). Another nickname is Sso-Ya (쏘야).

Sausages and vegetables are coated with a kid friendly flavour enhancer aka ketchup and sugar. Whoever brought this side dish in their lunchbox was very popular during lunch time!

Also, it is a popular drinking snack. I used to order it at a hof (호프: Korean beer bar). Apparently, hof is a derived word from German, Hofbrau.

Note

-Below is the Korean style Vienna sausage I used for this recipe. In Korea, these types of sausages are found in the fridge section but this one was kept in the freezer. If the sausage is frozen, take them out, separate and soak them in water for 5 mins. Then pat dry with kitchen paper before cooking it.

-Surprisingly, the above sausage contains 75% of fish, so it’s more like fish cake rather than traditional sausage. Other brands of sausages might be different. Maybe because of this reason, I actually prefer using cocktail Frankfurt sausages.

-If you want to make the sausage look prettier like the above picture, carve the sausages lightly in diagonal line. Make sure you don’t cut through completely.

-The side dish can be served warm or cold, but I think it tastes better while it’s still warm.

-It can be refrigerated in an airtight glass container for a few days.

  2. Through in some Gochujang and super hot red chillies and I’m in!

    I’m sure this would work with any sausages. I do something similar with left over BBQ’d sausages and it always goes down a treat, for me 🙂 !

  3. Any specific brand suggestion for cocktail frankfrut sausages, please? Literally I tried so many store-bought(not Korean ones) frank sausages to make perfect sso-ya but no success yet. Just the texture is way too soft though tasted still fine. Thanks!

    • Hi Yuna, In Australia, there aren’t many choices for cocktail frankfurt sausages, so I just grab whatever. 🙂 Though this is the brand I used most recently, and I quite liked it. http://shop.coles.com.au/online/national/don-cocktail-franks-skin-on (I think it’s also cheaper than the Korean Vienna sausages too.) I’m not sure what kind of texture you’re after, but not all Korean sausages are perfect either. For one thing, the sausages in the picture above, I didn’t like them as much as I did for frankfurt. I think it’s because they were frozen and maybe also because they were made with mostly fish rather than beef or pork.

    • Hi Kelli, I’ve only tried it with Korean vienna sausages and cocktail frankfurt sausages. They both worked well. I also think lil smokies sausages will work well too. (I don’t think it’s avaialble in Australia, but looking at some pictures from Google, I think it will work. 🙂 )
