Chinese One Pot Sausage and Rice

(Last Updated on November 5, 2023 by Amiee)

It seems that our lives are busier than ever before, so that there is no time to cook a good meal. Fortunately we have a instant pot in which meat and vegetables cooked for a meal. Today’s recipe is a classic one pot meal I cooked many times with delicious rich flavored.  It should be regarded as a derivative version of Chinese Claypot Rice and Sausage, because authentic one requires preise time, claypot ware, and heat which is guarded by a cook.

The key ingredient is cantonese style sausage with little sweet taste. In my impression, the north style sausage is thicker and salty tasted compared to the Cantonese sausage. No matter what kind of sausage you have in your hand, put it in, I believe you will get the same nice dish.

About the vegetables

Dried shiitake mushrooms that need to be soaked in advance are indispensable. Others I added carrot and onions. If you have the root vegetables besides greens, such as tomatoes, potatoes, lotus root,celery etc., added them will be fine. For green leafy will be yellow color and not tasty after a long time cooking.

The essential cooking step

Add 1 tablespoon oil to the wok, stir-frying all the vegetables  for 2-3 minutes, then add them to the instant pot with prepared water and rice, then press the cooking rice button.

All that left is to wait for the heat preservation lamp to be turned on , and then enjoy the delicious rice with sausage and vegetables.
