Four Happiness Pork

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Cynna

A Shanghai specialty! "You will not find this dish on restaurant menus because it is too time-consuming. However, it is as common to Chinese families as roast beef is to Western families. It is delicious with steamed buns and any vegetable dish." From Madame Wong's Long-Life Chinese Cookbook.
