One word to describe this…. *YUMMY!*

Lap cheung or waxed meat is one of the must have item during the Lunar New Year. Long time ago, it was only during the Lunar New Year season that the yummy lup cheung are being imported from China but now we can get them all year round.

Though I love to eat lap cheung but I try not to eat them too often as they are unhealthy. Why? Well, lap cheung is a type of processed food just like those English sausages which are high with sodium content. PiggyBeng loves eating lap cheung as it’s easy to prepare (either steam or lightly fried) and he can slurp down a big bowl of rice with it!

  3. Using the balanced oil in the wok (residue from the lap cheung so very fragrant), fry the longbeans till soft and look a little brownish then lift up and saute the onion by adding another tbsp of oil and fry till fragrant.
  4. Add in the mushroom cubes, continue frying with the onions then add in the longbeans, sliced chili, and the squid rings while adding a tbsp of oil.
  5. When the squid rings start to curl up, add in the rice and keep strring till all the other ingredients mixed well with the rice.
  6. Add in light soy sauce, stir and add in the eggs (beaten) and when it mixed with all the rice add in the fried lap cheung cubes.
  7. Before lifting up, sprinkle a few dash of pepper to taste.

Note: Do continue to add a little oil if you think the rice is rather dry along the way.
