Render Sausage Fat:
In a large wok, add the slices of Chinese sausages and slowly cook over medium-low heat for about 3 minutes or until the fat is released. Stir often so the sausage doesn't burn.

Cook the Rice and Sauce:
Push all the aromatic ingredients and scrambled eggs to the side then melt 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter.
Add the rice to the wok. Give it a quick stir to mix the rice with the other ingredients. Add Shaoxing wine, soy sauce, and oyster sauce. Stir fry for about 1-2 minutes.Adjust seasoning with additional soy sauce or oyster sauce if desired (use an increment of 1 teaspoon each time) or with a pinch of salt and pepper.
