Don't be put off by the lettuce in this fried rice recipe. The crisp, coolness of iceberg lettuce is a perfect contrast to the fatty Chinese sausage. Other than that, it's a pretty basic fried rice recipe.
Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage, Eggs, and Lettuce
from lil' sis's best friend
2 cups day-old cooked rice
5 eggs, scrambled or use my scrambled egg omelet technique
3 Chinese sausages, sliced
1/2 head iceberg lettuce, sliced
1/2 onion, sliced
Soy sauce to taste
Make lightly scrambled eggs or use my scrambled egg omelet technique. Set aside.
Slice about 3 Chinese sausages. My family prefers Quang Tran, Inc. brand (these are not it), but any kind will do.
Saute the Chinese sausages with 1/2 sliced onion until the onion is golden and the sausages are lightly crisp at the edges.
The Chinese sausages are pretty greasy so you may want to dab with a paper towel to remove excess grease.
Add cooked rice to a wok or pan.
Then add Chinese sausages, onions, and scrambled eggs. Mix thoroughly and season with soy sauce to taste.
As we sat down to eat the dinner that lil' sis's best friend and her other friend had prepared for us, I noticed that there was still bok choy and iceberg lettuce on the counter.
What's the iceberg lettuce for? I asked
For the fried rice, but then lil' sis's best friend decided to just omit the lettuce so we could sit down and eat.
Oh, I said a little sadly. But I already have a Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage and Mixed Frozen Vegetables recipe on the blog. This fried rice is too similar to warrant another recipe. But if he made fried rice with lettuce...
Well! If it'll get him another mention on the blog...
So lil' sis's best friend tossed in half a head of sliced iceberg lettuce.
Just until wilted.
Then added the plate of fried rice, Chinese sausages, and eggs back into the pan. Mix thoroughly.
Fried rice with Chinese sausages, eggs, and lettuce.
The cooked lettuce added a nice bit of green and helped cut the greasiness of the Chinese sausage.
Won't you try cooking lettuce too?
