Makes a lot of rice...enough for 8-12
Author: Cynthia

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sweet rice
  • 2 links Chinese sausage sliced thin ( I like Chinese sausage so much, I sometimes buy it and eat it like a Slim Jim)
  • 1 small about 2 ounces piece of Chinese bacon, diced
  • 5 -6 dried black mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons dried shrimp optional
  • 2 Tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 green onions or scallions sliced fine

Instructions

  • Prepare the rice according to directions, either using a rice cooker or on the stove top.
  • While the rice is cooking, soak the mushrooms in very hot or boiling water for about 15-20 minutes until they are soft. Remove the tough center stem and dice.
  • Soak the shrimp the same way, set aside.
  • Saute the mushrooms, sausage and bacon over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, add soy sauces, water and sugar, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes. There should be about 1/2 to 3/4 cups of liquid left.
  • Toss the mushroom mixture and dried shrimp over the rice, adding the broth a little at a time, stirring well. You may not need to add all the broth, taste and decide. Garnish with sliced green onions.
