Braised Intestines in Brown Sauce (Jiu Zhuan Da Chang)

Braised Intestines in Brown Sauce is a famous dish from Jinan, Shandong Province, which was created by the Jiuhualou Restaurant. The main procedure is as follows: the pork intestines are washed and boiled with spices, and then they are taken out and are cut into pieces about 3 cm long, seasoned with soybean sauce, sugar, spices and other seasonings to make the delicious Braised Intestines in Brown Sauce.

This dish uses many kinds of seasonings and complex cooking procedures to create the rich taste. The cooking methods were improved later to make Braised Intestines in Brown Sauce tastier and visually appealing.

After tasting by some literati, the number “nine”(Chinese: 九“Jiu”) was added in the name of the dish to please the owner of the restaurant as well as to praise the cook who's exquisite cooking techniques were “as fine as pill-making in Taoist alchemy”.
