Chinese Style Sausage Lap Cheong

This Chinese ingredient will help you extend your Chinese menu with a real popular flavor additive. Lap cheong is used throughout the world and there are many varieties as shown in this video on Asian Travel in Singapore. Most of these are made with pork and chicken, but some include liver. With the diversification of American cuisine, many Asian ingredients are made in the USA as well. Amazon.com shows 33 varieties they offer online but one of my favorites that is Kam Yen Jan Chinese Style Sausage Rose Wine Flavored . If shopping at an Asian market you will be able to find it cheaper.
Many families just pop a few sausages into their rice cooker if making fried rice. The rose wine or rice vinegar rose flavored make the rice more aromatic. Try steaming the sausage and slicing thin in scrambled eggs with a few sliced scallions and a touch of Fish Sauce. In my kitchen, these sausages find their way in ramen, soups, and hot pots.
