Hong Shao Rou - China
If you've never tried hong shao rou, you could almost consider yourself lucky because it's dangerously delicious. It's a famous Shanghai-style dish of braised pork belly that's cooked until the fat and skin become ultra soft and gelatinous. The sauce recipe may vary, but typically you'll find it with a mixture of garlic, ginger, spices, light and dark soy sauce, rice wine, sugar, star anise and chili peppers. The results are a sticky, sweet concoction of melt-in-your-mouth goodness. That being said, it's a high-fat, sugary dish that should be consumed in moderation.
