Chinese sausage fried rice
A quick, tasty dish prepared in just a few minutes, Chinese sausage fried rice delivers a balanced smoky, savory & sweet taste.
Chinese sausage, the star ingredient of this recipe, refers to a type of sausage which originated from the province of Guang dong (Canton) in China. It’s commonly known as “Cantonese Lap cheong”. Made of pork and seasoned with rice wine, soy sauce, rose water, etc., lap cheong has a distinctive fragrance, smoky flavour and has a very pleasant sweet taste. It’s often used as a flavour component in stir-fry dishes. You can find Lap cheong on the chilled shelves in Chinese supermarkets (and in some Asian shops too).
