Every Chinese/Cantonese child grew up with some version of this meal-in-one. Don’t get upset though if your Asian friend may not have ever mentioned it to you; they’ve likely taken it for granted because it’s so basic.
Asian sausages are different in three ways: Firstly, there is a higher fat content and the meat is not minced fully so there are lumps for more texture. Secondly, it is slightly sweet with a hint of five spices, and lastly they are sold to you dried - you need to revive them in a steamer, and you can’t do much with them until then.
My parents remember having these grilled sausages as snacks in the night market with large slices of raw garlic.
Here's a deliciously easy recipe to go with our 5-Grain Mix. If this sounds familiar to you, it was one of the dishes we prepared live on stage at the expo, so we thought we'd give you the chance to make it for yourself!
