Tea Flavored Glutenous Rice with Chinese Sausage and Shiitake Mushrooms


Easy Chinese comfort food

Such a long title for something so simple and delicious to make!

When I was in high school, I came across a recipe that called for prepared oolong tea to use as the water when making glutenous rice. My mom said “Ooh, Popo (Chinese for grandma) really likes that kind of dish.” And let me tell you, I am loving it too. Such a great flavor. I like to reconstitute dried shiitake mushrooms and  use the left over water and tea to cook my rice. The results are heavenly!

I use a rice cooker and I have no idea what the measurements are for a regular pot on a stove. My apologies.
