Step By Step
Let’s start by washing the rice grains first. Fill a pot halfway with rice and cover with cold water. Swirl the rice grains with your hands to loosen any extra starch. Washing removes extra starch from the rice, resulting in a light, fluffy, airy rice rather than heavy, sticky, and starchy rice. Turn the pot upside down and carefully pour out the water. Repeat twice more. Remove as much water from the pot as possible.
Pour in 2 3/4 cups of water.
Place the sausage on the rice. Increase the heat to high. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to low when the water near the edge of the pot begins to bubble for 18 minutes
Make the Sweet Soy Sauce.
When the rice is done cooking, remove it from heat and cover it with a lid. Allow it to sit for 5 minutes with the lid on to finish steaming.
Remove the sausages and set them aside to cool. Cut them into 1/2-inch thick slices diagonally. Place the sausages on top of the rice and drizzle with the Sweet Soy Sauce.
Sweet Soy Sauce
Add the oil, garlic, and shallot to a small saucepan. Reduce the heat to low and cook the garlic and shallot slowly until they begin to brown but do not burn. Remove the shallots and garlic with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving the flavored oil. Stir in the dark & regular soy sauce and cook for 2 minutes, or until thickened.
Serve Sweet Soy Sauce on the side for drizzling.
