I have made yang chow before but using spam and adding corn to it just made all feel wrong. It was more of a spam fried rice, than yang chow.
Mom was craving for some good fried rice and we had recently bought some chinese sausages that I know would go well with this. So I decided to make some. Besides, after repeatedly watching Iron Chef Chen Kenichi make fried rice (I watch Iron Chef Japanese nonstop on Youtube!!!), I feel like making Chinese fried rice is easy. Surely he makes it look easy 🙂
One thing I learned to do was mix the raw egg with the rice even before putting the rice in the pan. So I mixed the egg and rice mixture first and set it aside. I then sauteed the diced Chinese sausages, green oinon and green peas. Afterwards, I added the rice. I seasoned this with some leftover salted and peppered chicken broth. I then added more soy sauce since this was lacking in taste still.
The taste was wonderful. The sweet sausages provided a good contrast with salty rice. I love most versions of fried rice, and this one, I think, am learning how to make proeprly 🙂
Speaking of Chinese cooking, anyone knows where I can find a real nice but decently priced wok? I think I want it for Christmas. 🙂
