Today we are making a traditional Beijing recipe – Peking Sauce Pork. According to my research, it has a fun story of how it was invented:
There was a grandfather raising his grandson. During Chinese New Year, the grandson wanted to eat Peking Duck- the most famous food… but they were too poor to afford that. So, the grandfather used the same sauce that is used on Peking duck to cook the pork and he prepared it in the same way how you would eat Peking duck (with the spring pancakes, lotus leaf buns, cucumbers, julienne-d scallions). The grandson really like it- they had a wonderful Chinese New Year
