Braised Pork in Brown Sauce, Mao’s Family Style

Braised Pork in Brown Sauce, Mao’s Family Style is a famous Hunan dish which is eye appealing as well as savory. The main ingredient marbled pork is seasoned with sugar and cooking wine to make the sweet, salty and spicy Braised Pork with beautiful golden brown sauce.

Mao Zedong, the former Chairman of PRC, used to enjoy dishes cooked with soybean sauce. However, he once witnessed the unhygienic making process of soybean sauce in a small workshop and so he stopped having dishes with soybean sauce ever since. Cheng Ruming, Chef of Zhongnanhai, the headquarters for PRC, came up with a good idea. He used sugar and salt instead of soybean sauce to give the pork a brownish color. In this way, the marbled pork tastes much better than before and is greatly enjoyed by Chairman Mao.
