Bianco & Sons Sausage
Our fried rice recipe features the very best Chinese Brand Sausage in the New England area.
The Bianco & Sons Sausage brand is a tasty Massachusetts-based, third-generation company that provides top quality meats. Their products extend beyond sausage, including homemade meatballs and marinated meats. No matter which product you choose, they are all fresh and delicious. This family-owned company offers shipping nationally as well! We love their sausage and marinated meats which make mealtime nice and easy. If you are local to the Greater Boston area, you can visit their retail store located at 1 Brainard Avenue in Medford, MA.
Before starting this recipe, you’ll want to verify that you have the following ingredients:
- 1 Pack of Bianco & Sons Quality Meats Chinese Brand Links. If you’ve never tried this family-owned, Massachusetts-based sausage company, you’re missing out! They have hands-down the BEST meats and sausage I’ve ever tasted. I am not even a big fan of sausage, but they have sold me on their brand! You can buy it at their storefront in Medford, MA, or in-stores across the New England area.
- Eggs – Traditional fried rice has eggs scrambled inside. We love adding these for flavor and texture.
- Garlic – This will add so much flavor to your rice. We like to press ours for maximum release of the natural oils.
- Butter – Butter adds a nice flavor to the sautéed vegetables and rice. I prefer it over using olive oil for best taste.
- Onion – A large yellow onion diced adds a fresh taste and nice texture to the rice.
- Frozen vegetables – You can use a mix of peas and carrots. We used a blend of carrots, peas and green beans since our store only had this variety.
- Bean sprouts – In New England, our fried rice often has these and they taste great inside the mixture.
- Spices – Salt and black pepper help to season the vegetables.
- Fresh ginger – A little goes a long way to flavor this rice.
- Green Onion – Freshly sliced green onion add delicious flavor, texture and color to this rice.
- Sherry wine – Provides a nice flavor to the sautéed vegetables.
- Oyster Sauce – A thick sauce that adds a classic depth of flavor.
- Soy Sauce – We used low sodium, light soy sauce hence the coloring of our rice–don’t worry, it doesn’t affect the flavors.
- Toasted Sesame Oil – This is a finishing oil that gives the rice its shine and traditional flavor. It smells amazing and tastes even better!
Equipment and Supplies Needed
We used the following equipment and supplies to make this recipe. (Items that are optional or can be substituted will be noted!)
- Grill – To use to cook your sausage. This enhances the flavors and brings out a sweet, smoky flavor.
- Cutting board & knife – This is key to chopping/dicing your vegetables.
- Garlic press – To extract all of the flavor from your garlic and ginger. I pressed both and it worked great!
- Wok – A large wok is a must to get the rice toasted and bring out the most flavor.
- Rice cooker – You will need something to cook your 6 cups of rice. in. We cooked ours in our pressure cooker and refrigerated it overnight. You want the rice to be cold, dry and not sticky or soft for best results.
This recipe is easy to make if you know the right tricks! Here are my tips for ensuring your Chinese Sausage Fried Rice comes out perfectly.
- Be sure to use cold, day-old rice. This recipe performs best with rice that is precooked, and not soft or wet.
- Sesame oil is a finishing oil and not an oil to cook the vegetables or rice with.
- Oyster sauce is a must in this recipe for an authentic depth of flavor.
- You can use regular soy sauce or low sodium in this recipe without altering much.
- Dark soy sauce can also be used to provide more coloring to the rice.
- Butter or olive oil can be used however butter tastes better to us.
- The sausage can be grilled or pan-fried. We love the extra flavor and charred skin grilling the Bianco Chinese Brand Links provide.
- Fresh carrots, sugar snap peas, or green beans can be added to this if you prefer to skip frozen vegetables.
- Adding more soy sauce or sesame oil may be needed to liven up the rice after storage.
