  • Ready In

  1. Roll sausage into 100 very small balls using no more than 1 1/2 teaspoons meat per ball.
  2. Stir red wine vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, soy sauce, and ground ginger together in a large saucepan over medium heat; bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and cook at a simmer until beginning to thicken, about 15 minutes.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Fry sausage balls in batches in the hot skillet until browned on all sides and no longer pink in the center, 3 to 5 minutes per batch. Remove cooked sausage balls with a slotted spoon to the saucepan and stir into the sauce to coat.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For less spice, use sweet Italian sausage. For a compromise, mix equal parts of sweet and hot italian sausage.
  • These keep warm quite nicely in a miniature slow cooker, if serving at a gathering.
