My mum used to prepare this dish during Chinese New Year, especially the 2nd day. After the reunion dinner mostly we have leftovers (roast pork, chicken etc) which go well in stir fry leek. Leek is another auspicious ingredient for Chinese New Year.  “” in Chinese name sounds like calculating (“”) in Mandarin. It symbolizes wealth with lots of money.

I personally like my leek with Chinese sausage. In order to bring out the flavour I fry the sausage before adding into leek. If you happen to have leftovers, this stir fry leek is good to go.

Stir fry leek with Chinese Sausage
Recipe from my mother kitchen
200g leeks (about 3 stalks)
1 Chinese sausage (
2 firm tofu (tau kua)
3 gloves garlic

2-3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 teaspoon light soya sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon Chinese cooking wine
100ml water

1. Wash the leek. Slice diagonally about 5cm lengths. Keep white part separately from green leaves.

2. Slice Chinese sausage diagonally.

3. Cut tofu into 5-6 slices each.

4. Dice garlic.

1. Heat up wok. Add in vegetable oil. Pan fried tofu slices till brown. Remove and set aside. Drain out excess oil and leave about a teaspoon of oil in wok.

2. Add in sliced sausage. Fry at low heat till fragrant and brown at edges. Some oil will release from sausage. Remove and set aside.

3. With the oil in wok, add in diced garlic. Fry till fragrant and lightly brown. Add in light soya, oyster sauce, cooking wine and lastly water in sequence. Bring to boil.

4. Pour in brown tofu and bring to boil again. Add in white part of leek. Stir fry for few minutes. Lastly add in green leek and brown sausage. Toss for 1-2 minutes and dish out.
