If you’ve ever been interested in making your own sausage, but put off by the equipment needed to do it, Bon Appetit has a smart method that uses just one low-tech tool: a Chinese soup spoon.

In the video above, Chef Kris Yenbamroong demonstrates how to stuff sausages with a spoon, using the narrow end to gather the casing and the wide end as a sort of funnel to more easily stuff in the sausage mixture. It will probably take a few tries to become as adept at the process as Yenbamroong, but if you’re looking for a budget-friendly way to take up a new DIY project, it’s worth a try.

And whether you’re stuffing it into casings or simply shaping it into free-form patties, the included recipe for spicy, savory, sweet and sour Thai sausage mixture sounds like a keeper.
