Fried California Wild Rice And White Rice Chinese Style
Makes 4 servings
In a heavy saucepan, combine wild rice and 2 cups water. Add salt to taste; heat to boiling. Reduce heat, cover; simmer for 35 to 45 minutes. Check for doneness. The rice should be cooked until it puffs, revealing a light, cream-colored interior. Overcooking wild rice makes it mushy. Its delectable chewy bite should be true after cooking. Drain if necessary.
In a heavy saucepan, combine white rice with 2 cups water and boil for 20 to 30 minutes; drain.
In the meantime, boil the Chinese sausage in 3 cups of water for 10 minutes. Remove from water and dice. In a medium-sized frying pan, heat vegetable oil. Add boiled sausage pieces and cooked rices and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Mix in scallion, soy sauce and lettuce and stir-fry for another 2 or 3 minutes. Remove from.
