Cuisine: Chinese


  • 2 cups sweet sticky rice
  • 1 cup sliced Chinese sausages about 4 links
  • ½ cup diced char siu
  • ½ cup diced roasted pork
  • 8 dried shiitake mushrooms soaked in hot water for an hour, squeezed and diced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 2 shallots thinly sliced
  • ½ cup chopped scallions
  • 2 tablespoons oil or unsalted butter


Sticky rice

  • Soak the sticky rice overnight or at least 6 hours; then cook it in a rice cooker with a sweet rice setting. Another way is to steam it


  • Add oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add the shallots and mushrooms and cook, stirring, until the shallots are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes
  • Add the sausage, char siu, and roasted pork to the skillet. Cook until the sausages curl slightly
  • Add the cooking wine and stir for 1 minute to let the meat and mushrooms absorb the wine
  • Add the soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, and rice. Toss until the sticky rice are evenly coated. Be sure to break up the clumps and get an even distribution of the sauce on everything; then garnish with scallions
  • For extra crunch, separate the skin from roasted pork. Keep it crispy in an air fryer, crack it, then sprinkle on top of the sticky rice
