About Pork Recipes

Pork is the favorite meat and some of the most sought after Chinese dishes in the Western world are made of pork. Such dishes, for instance, as sweet and sour pork, pork meat balls, barbecued spare ribs of pork, Chinese roast pork, and roast belly of pork, to mention only a few, have become so well known as almost to be considered Western ones. Pork is succulent meat. In Chinese, when they say meat ('rou' in mandarin or 'yuk' in Cantonese), they mean pork unless some other kind of meat is specified because pork is the most common kind of meat. Different dishes will need different kinds of cuts, as we shall see in below. Cuts have different textures once they have been cooked. Cuts of the same meat may be tough or tender, coarse or fine.
