Tasty Brussels Sprouts and Sausage Stir Fry combining Chinese sausage and soy sauce to give it an Asian flavor. Wonderful served as a side dish.
Veggie stir fry is one of the easiest dishes to prepare. It takes only minutes to cook and is so tasty. Like my mom, I prefer to keep my veggie stir fry vegan. However, certain vegetables do taste better with a little meat or seafood to “sweeten” the dish and this Brussels Sprouts and Sausage Stir Fry is one of them.
Brussels sprouts are very compact vegetables and do not hold as much liquid as compared to other leafy greens. They tend to be a little dry when stir fried on its own. A little animal fat helps make it smoother and tastier. I like to use Chinese sausage but bacon or regular sausages will also work.
Always remove the casing when using Chinese sausage. This can be done by soaking them in hot water. Once the casings puff up, they can be peeled off quite easily. There is no need to use oil when frying Chinese sausage. Like bacon they render fat when cooked. Discard the oil if you prefer to use vegetable oil instead.
