Found some smoked sausages tucked in my fridge, so decided to make a Japanese Style Fried Rice using Barley Grains to go with my sausages.


Ingredients for Barley Grain Fried Rice with Smoked Sausage

I have some boiled Barley Grains blessed by my friend, Susan Tan. If not, usually, I would save the Barley Grains from boiling Barley water/drink. Than I would keep the grains in freezer and thaw when needed. Barley is a good source of fibre and is low in GI.

First I cut 1 small bundle of Spring Onion to short length and divided white part from green part. Next I cut 3 Fresh Shiitake Mushrooms to julienne, 1 Red Chillie to short strips. Also cut 2 slices Back Bacon to short strips.

For seasoning, I am using 1 sachet Japanese “Cha-Han” seasoning granules Cha-Han means Fried Rice in Japanese. For those living in Singapore you can get this from Don Donki.


Boiling Smoked Sausages

First, I boiled 4 pcs Johnsonville brand Smoked Sausages in water, each of us will get two each.
