Poached Sliced Meat in Hot Chili Oil

Poached Sliced Meat in Hot Chili Oil is a famous dish of the Han ethnic group and a popular homemade dish in Sichuan cuisine innovated by Fan Ji’an (1887 - 1982), a famous chef from Zigong, Sichuan in the 1930s.

The reason why it is called “Poached” (Shui Zhu) is that the many slices of meat are not fried, but boiled when cooking the dish. Poached Sliced Meat in Hot Chili Oil is a spicy meaty dish made with lean pork, eggs and vegetable oil. It not only helps increase appetite, but also as a source of high quality protein, EFA, vitamin and iron. 

Though Poached Sliced Meat in Hot Chili Oil looks super spicy, it actually doesn’t taste that “terrifying” at all. The sliced pork which is coated with starch and mixed with seasoning in preparation tastes tender, smooth and easy to chew.
