Chinese Sausage

This is a popular brand seen in most Asian stores. Chinese sausages or 'Lap Chong,' are smoked cured spiced sausages made of pork and pork fat seasoned with rice wine and soy sauce. Because of its potent flavor, one or two sausages will be enough for this recipe. Best to stir fry it quickly without oil. Be watchful when you do stir-fry Chinese sausages on their own as they can easily burn.

Chinese sausages can be stored in your refrigerator well-wrapped for months.

      Of course, nowadays where everything and almost all information are global and can easily be found in all types of media especially the internet, almost nothing is considered secret or surprising.
