Chinese Sausage with Barbecue Sauce, Noodles and Greens

Back in November I went on a tour of Chinatown with Divertimenti. After the tour we went back to the cookery school in Marylebone High Street and the chef who took us on the tour cooked us a range of dishes using the produce that she had picked up on our way round. This was one of the dishes that she cooked and it was delicious. I have tried Chinese sausage before and never really got on with it but the spiciness of the barbecue sauce seems to tone down the sweetness of the sausage. It is fantastic served with a side of kimchi.

I am going to enter this into Presto Pasta Nights this week hosted by Juli of Pictures Of All My Princesses. Check out her blog on Friday for the round up.

Chinese Sausage with Barbecue Sauce, Noodles and Greens
(Serves 1)

2 Chinese sausages, cut into inch long pieces
rice noodles for 1 person
1 tbsp Sa Cha Chinese barbecue sauce
greens or pak choi or kai lan or choi sum (something green and leafy)

Cook the noodles according to packet instructions (if you can read the packet), for these ones I boiled them for about 5 mins. Steam the greens in a steamer on top of the noodles for a couple of minutes.

Meanwhile fry the sausages in a little oil in a frying pan for a couple of minutes. Add the cooked noodles to the pan and the barbecue sauce. Cook for a couple of minutes until combined.

Put the greens in your serving dish and then top with the noodles and sausages. Serve.


  1. I love Chinese sausages which are a little hard to find here in Halifax. That said... I'm off on a hunt ;-) Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights.

  2. I go to the Asian market often, but have never tried the sausages. This looks really good so I will give them a whirl.

  3. Mmm, that does look delicious. Anyway, it's often a good measure: if one does not like spicy food too much, it can be balanced with something equal on the sweet side, and vice versa. The clash of flavors is quite nice on the tastebuds!
