Okay, so the ChinaTours.com team is totally obsessed with spices and garlic flavored anything, which is exactly why yuxiang rousi – or shredded pork sauteed in spicy garlic sauce – is on our list of must-try Chengdu famous foods.
The base of this dish is a classic sweet and sour ‘fish-fragrant’ sauce made with salt, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, water, and corn starch. Sound wonderful? We agree!
A history of Chinese cooking reveals these flavors have long been integral to traditional seafood dishes, however, this combination of ingredients beautifully enhances meat, poultry, and even eggplant.
