Cabbage, Mushroom and Lap Cheong Stir Fry

Cabbage, Mushroom and Lap Cheong Stir Fry is a simple Chinese inspired stir fry prepared with cabbage and lap cheong as its main ingredient then is accompanied by young corn, mushrooms, spring onions and red pepper. The Lap Cheong on this stir fry gives it a lot of flavour that is quite different with other stir fries!


Cabbage, Mushroom and Lap Cheong Stir Fry, so what’s special about this dish today? Well, when it comes to stir fries the usual choice of protein is either pork, chicken or beef but have you tried using this Chinese sausage called Lap Cheong? This sausage is a flavour powerhouse with a sweet-salty flavour plus its fat content, it gives dishes that special flavour you can’t usually get from other protein sources, smoky, savoury and fatty.

While I use this frequently on other dishes like steamed chicken and fried rice, I rarely use them on stir fries but today that will change as I am using it on a simple cabbage and mushroom stir fry to give it a nice flavour boost.

  3. I’ve never tried Lap Cheong, but the description of this sausage sounds delicious. And this stir-fry also looks and sounds utterly tasty – a homey, hearty, filling but relatively light dish!

    I’m all about this dish! Would you believe that the most popular recipe on my blog is just stir-fried cabbage? This is like the fancier version of the concept!
