Chinese Sausage Fried Rice

This is my husband’s favorite Chinese sausage recipe ever. If you thought you had to go to a restaurant to enjoy this or wondered how to add pork to How to Make Egg Fried Rice, I will explain how to make this right at home. With the help of Amazon I found everything I needed to make it taste just like take out. (affiliate links present)

How to Make Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage

You’ll want to fry the meat and add in with your other ingredients. There are tons of ways to tweak this to your liking which is great, but the base remains. If you love mixed veggies inside your bites, we will explain how to include them.

Not a fan? Leave them out entirely! Still delicious either way friends. I’ll share my favorite rice cooker below but you can make Ninja Foodi rice too.

I always make this with Instant Pot white rice but you could use brown if you’re trying to eat healthier (just doesn’t taste the same to me). Now I will say that I have made and tweaked my original recipe many many times over the years. And I have made this for at least 10 years, but now was the time to actually share it as we reached pretty close to perfection (says my husband and kids).

I had nailed down the brand of meat that is best, seen below here, and packets of seasoning many years ago. It was the rice and cooker that were hanging me up!! I will say that using white rice is a close second if you don’t want to buy a new machine but there IS a difference I tell you when it comes to perfectly steamed rice. My family agrees.

First off, there is a real difference when it comes to the term “white rice”. Long grain is the cheapest, but not very tender if you compare it to other varieties. I moved on to arborio rice and that was better, but kept going over time.

Then went to Jasmine and liked that even more, but there was one that I hadn’t broken down and tried because of the price. Aaaaand once I finally bought sushi rice I knew I could never ever ever go back. Even my girls can now tell the difference if I run out and go to my reserves, they aren’t nearly as tender.

Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage

You know how when you go to a Chinese or Japanese restaurant how their rice is SO much better than when you make it? That is because they use sushi rice, yes that is what it is called and not just to pair with raw fish. I have a post all about how long rice take to cook so you can make the base as good as possible.

  • 1.5 c sushi rice uncooked, sushi is best but Jasmine or arborio work
  • Water
  • Eggs if you want to add that
  • 1/2 package of Chinese sausage
  • Soy sauce
  • Packets fried rice seasoning
  • 3/4 cup works if you want to add and know how to cook frozen vegetables, optional add in

I am showing you visuals of the two things I either order online or if you have a Ranch 88 store near you, hit that!! Unfortunately when we moved to Idaho we didn’t have the availability of Asian markets like we did in California, but luckily Amazon have both!! I still stock up though when I go visit family there too. 😉

Should you take the casing off Chinese sausage?

You do not need to but may prefer to do so to make it less chewy. The outside can add a bit of extra chewy to every bite so you can slice down the side and peel it right off before you slice it. I do not bother with this step because I slice it so thin and I think it is easier to cut small with it in tact but your choice.

Chinese Fried Rice Sausage

What to cook with Chinese sausage

Make 1.5 cups of rice in rice cooker. We use a rice cooker, linked above with a touch more than 3 cups of water and it turns out perfect. If you would rather cook the rice in slow cooker early in the morning to use later that day, that works. On the stove the “old fashioned” method is fine too. 😉

  • When rice is done open the lid to let it cool just for a few minutes while you prep the other things.
  • On a cutting board cut the pack of Chinese sausage in half, and slice into thin pieces. (put other half in ziploc in fridge so you can make another batch later in the week)
    • if you want to include frozen peas and carrots, microwave with a bit of water to defrost, drain and throw those into the pan
  • Add a bit of vegetable oil with sausage (and veggies if you want) and fry meat until edges start to shrivel and meat is cooked. Put into bowl and set aside.
  • In a bowl whisk your eggs. Warm wok on stovetop over medium high heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil and then your beaten eggs when warmed.
  • Use a spatula to move around to make small bits of scrambled eggs. Transfer this to a small bowl.
    • ** If you want to add frozen mixed veggies, heat until tender on stovetop or add to a microwave safe bowl with a bit of water and heat for a few minutes until tender to your liking. Drain, set aside.
  • Turn heat to low. Spoon in your add the rice into the pan. Sprinkle in 1 of your stir fried rice seasoning, your sliced sausage and half your soy sauce. Gently fold together. * Add drained tender mixed veggies if you want to now.

Add your cooked eggs, rest of soy sauce and fried rice seasoning sprinkled on top. Gently fold together. Taste, add more soy or a bit of ground white pepper if you’d like to taste. Turn heat off and serve immediately. Pure comfort food I tell you.

The Easiest Fried Rice Recipe

You could make this in your pressure cooker if you wanted too. We have an Instant Pot fried rice version here. If you wanted to add this sausage just saute it with a bit of oil and then follow the other directions.

Do you need to peel Chinese sausage?

If you slice it thin there is no need to peel the casing off. The ends are tough with it on so those should be peeled or discarded. Our fried rice with Chinese sausage doesn’t require removing since it is cut thin and warmed with the other ingredients.

Can you air fry Chinese sausage?

Certainly!! Slice on a cutting board thin and preheat your machine to 380 degrees F for 5 minutes. Toss sausage with a bit of sesame or vegetable oil and then pour into air fryer basket. Cook for 3-4 minutes tossing halfway thru until they start to shrivel on the edges and are starting to brown. Then add into our fried rice recipe!

Is Chinese Sausage raw?

Even though it appears that it might be fully cooked already it is not. It is hard because it has been preserved with salt but still should be fried with a bit of oil to make our Chinese sausage fried rice recipe.

Since this is combined with dark soy sauce and has some pork fat in it because of the meat, this leftover rice actually saves well for 1 day. Beyond that the clumps of rice will dry out and there is literally no way to get it to tender enough again.
