    fluffernutter's Note:

    I always wondered what to do with lop chong, those small, slightly sweet Chinese sausages. I finally learned that they should be boiled for a few minutes, then sliced and stir-fried. I first tried this recipe when my husband returned from Costco with a HUGE bag of frozen baby green beans. It's quick, authentic and good. Modified somewhat from the Martha Stewart Cookbook.

      I love lop chong! This was a great new addition to my recipe file. I used fresh green beans and served it with steamed rice. I have never boiled these sausages before, I normally steam them. Boiling them didn't change the taste or texture, and boiling them may eliminate more of the fat. At any rate, this dish is a keeper.
