  1. Alright Cynthia, you almost lost me at brussels sprouts! However, this combination with soy sauce and apple cider vinegar, I almost can’t resist, especially since I want to eat healthier. 

    Question though, I love sausage, but what is the difference between Chinese sausage and the basic Smithfield sausages I buy at my local market?

    1. Thank you for your comments, Chris.  I “almost lost” a lot of people at Brussels sprouts but I love them (the sprouts and the people)!  The Chinese sausage I use in this recipe is not the traditional Chinese sausage, which is dried.  The one I’m using is a fresh pork sausage which is mixed with a Chinese style sauce (similar to the Ah-So Sauce that can be found in supermarkets).
