Stir Fried Garlic Stems With Chinese Sausage 蒜苗炒臘腸

This is my second post using garlic stem (蒜苗, pronounced suan miao) also known as garlic scapes in The United States. The delicious crisp and chive like stems taste the best when they are simply stir fry with Chinese bacon or any salty cured meat. I used Chinese sausage in this recipe, for a vegetarian version click HERE

A big thank you to everyone and please spend some time checking out these amazing blogs!
