why don't I ever see chinese hot dogs?
tonight i'm making an eastern-flavoured slaw, and my taste thing says it would go really well with hot dogs.
what am i missing, or what is the world missing?
Hot dogs are just a type of sausage. The Chinese have sausages.
The chinese don't eat hotdogs because at the time when America was shitty enough to invent hotdogs, China was not really eating bread. Now that China has bread, they've successfully skipped hotdogs and gone right for KFC
dude have you ever had chinese kfc? i ate there once before a flight in beijing and while i hate kfc in the united states, kfc in china is amazing. it's what KFC should be
idk what they do to the chicken but god damn
Chinese sausage is fucking amazing. GF's family is Szechuan. The old grandma still makes Szechuan sausage by hand every winter.
Those are fucking shit balls bro! THere are two kinds, one is spicy and the other is "savory". THe flavor is not from smoking or salt, but tons upon tons of spices. The spicy kind has dried szechuan pepper roasted to various degrees and other herbs and a wad of szechuan pepper to give it that aroma and numbness in the mouth. The savory kind doubles the peppers and other herbs.
You then dry the sausage, during the drying the fat and protein inside slightly ferments giving the sausage a distinct flavor, a slight tanginess, so though fatty, but due to the tang it's not oily in the mouth at all.
You serve it by cutting the sausage into very thin slices, the fat inside is dried and fermented so when you slice the sausage, the fat globs look like transparent rice paper. Y
You then plate the fucking slices and steam it till the aroma of the herbs and spices flood your entire house. The shit's so aromatic next block's dogs are barking.
It's just so fucking good.
Strongly suggest you google "sichuan sausage" fucking amazing pictures.
Also while you are eating it, you need to keep them hot, if the fat inside resolidifies and turns white, you take that shit back to the steamer and heat it up again.
Dat fukcing melty spicy goodness.
