What Is Chinese Sausage?

Chinese sausage is a fragrant and slightly sweet sausage that originated in the Chinese province of Guangdong (formerly Canton). Called lap cheong in Cantonese, it's made of pork seasoned with rice wine, soy sauce, and rose water, among other ingredients. It’s often used in stir-fry dishes. You can find this type of sausage in Asian stores.
