Chinese New Year Turnip Cake
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound pork sausage, sliced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 turnips, shredded
1 1/2 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
Add 5-spice powder, salt, chicken bouillon and white pepper and toss all together until evenly distributed.
Clean wok/skillet, fill with water and bring to a boil. Place cake pan on a round wire rack over boiling water. Reduce heat to low and let simmer, steaming cake 'batter', for 45 minutes. (Note: you can also use a large bamboo steamer if you have one). When 'cake' is steamed through, slice into pieces and serve hot OR cool on wire rack before covering tightly with plastic wrap and placing in refrigerator to chill.
