Low Fat Chinese Sausage

Chinese sausage is a dried, hard sausage usually made from fatty pork. Ingredients like monosodium glutamate, soy sauce and sugar are added to the sausages in very high levels. The addition of selected Chinese rice wines or even scotch or sherry are common for certain quality products. The most popular spice is cinnamon since Chinese manufacturers believe that it acts as a preservative.
