What is Chinese Sausage?
It's an umbrella term for a wide variety of sausages originating from China.
When people refer to Chinese sausage, they typically talk about the southern-style variety known as "Lap Cheong" or "Lap Chong" in Cantonese.
Chinese sausage is typically smoked and dried. It's available in fatty or lean versions and can feature various meats like pork, pig, duck, and turkey livers.
What does it taste like?
The most common type, "Lap Cheong," made from pork sausage, has the perfect balance of sweet and salty.
It's filled with small cubes of fat that, when cooked, become tender and meltingly delicious.
Where to buy it?
Most Chinese grocery stores sell dried Chinese sausages in vacuum-sealed packs. They can be found in the refrigerated or non-perishable sections.
