Stir Fried Chinese Sausage With Pear

Image hosted by

There was an interesting fruit recipe recommended by our resident chef, FoodCrazee, not long ago called 'Stir Fried Taiwanese Sausage with Pear'. I decided to give it a try as it sounded pretty simple and yet special.

The recipe mainly calls for Taiwanese sausages, snow pear, celery, sesame oil and a little seasoning. Unfortunately, I ran out of Taiwanese sausages but had plenty of Chinese sausages (lap-cheong) in the larder. So, I just altered the recipe a little by replacing Taiwanese sausages with lap-cheong. The recipe also called for snow pear, which I do not have and believe I have never seen it before in my life (maybe someone can help me?). Therefore, I also replaced this ingredient with gong pear which is found abundantly in my fridge. Just for your information, gong pear is the yellow, lightly speckled and plump and juicy type of pear.

I served the stir fry 'donburi' (Japanese term for one meal or bowl dish) style in a bowl on a bed of warm rice with a little soya sauce. The meal was quite good and the combination of textures were really interesting. The sausages were chewey, the celery crunchy and the pears soft on the outside but slighty crunchy in the inside.

My siblings, didn't want to try the dish. One of them did took a bite but decided that she didn't like the taste. So, I guess this is not a dish that everyone would like. But I like it. Before this, I didn't even know pears can be cooked as a savoury dish. But now I know. Thanks for sharing the recipe FoodCrazee!

Well done...Actually Snow Pear is the same as your Gong Pear..the yellow speckle type. Snow Pear is translated from Cantonese.. Hokkien word for it is ...Wah Neh Hiao ! chuckle.

Glad you like them. Maybe you can try with taiwan sausage next.

wow... that looks super delicious... :D

well... too bad it's got celery.. and i am sorta 'allergic' to celery.. the smell of it is such a turn off to me already

maybe i can try doing that without the celery.. :D

just like how i modified that chicken pie recipe of ur's and replaced it with mushrooms instead of carrots and peas... (my gf dislikes it)

cheers :)

Thanks for the info about Snow Pear. The Hokkien name for it is a good one... haha. Yes, maybe I'll try it with Taiwan sausage next time... feel a bit low class to replace it with lap-cheong hor?

Thanks! Yes, maybe you can replace it with more pears haha... or maybe can get some advise from our resident chef Mr Foodcrazee...
Hey, I'm glad you baked that chicken pie! Great effort for a first timer! Yeah!

Aiyaa... banyak postlah you. Thanks for the compliments : ). Seems that you really enjoy food a lot too hor?

Oh please do try it out and share a photo with us! I'm sure Foodcrazee will love to see it too : ). Can't wait to see your version!
