Thanks to our lovely friends at Home Cook Love for sharing their fast and simple Asian Style Sausage Fried Rice recipe with us!
Growing up in Singapore in a foodie family means that I was pretty spoilt when it came to food choices. This Chinese Sausage Fried Rice recipe is one of my favourite childhood recipes passed down by my late Grandma.
Lup Cheong otherwise known as Chinese sausage looks like a shrivelled up English sausage made of pork and fat. The sausage is marinated, salted and smoked with sugar, rose water, salt and rice wine added to it to give it a distinctively smoky sweet taste. It’s quite an indulgent ingredient so it’s not something that you would want to eat regularly!
Chinese Sausage Fried Rice recipe has been a long time family favourite, it brings back a lot of fond childhood memories and nostalgia for me when I make it for the family. It’s definitely a recipe that I would be passing onto my girls as part of their heritage, and in remembrance of their late Great Gran.
I hope your family will enjoy this as much as we do!

Asian Style Sausage Fried Rice Recipe notes:
- If you like to soften the Lup Cheong prior to cooking, you could pre-steam it for roughly 10 mins or until the sausage starts to soften so it’s easier to slice. Lup Cheong can be easily left out for a vegetarian option, or can be replaced with chicken or pork mince. Garlic can be left out as well, it just adds more flavour.
- You could also replace veggies with your kids’ favourites. I would add broccoli usually as my girls love it, strangely enough!
