► Lyrics 🎵
Woke up this morning
Found myself craving
Some hongshaorou, hongshaorou, hongshaorou
So warm and tender
So rich and fragrant
A classic Chinese red braised pork

Blanch your pork belly
Sculpt into pieces
Oh hongshaorou, hongshaorou, hongshaorou
Now blanch one more time
To nail the texture
And let it rest until it's cold

Fried aromatics
The smell of heaven
Oh hongshaorou, hongshaorou, hongshaorou
Return the belly
Cover with water
Sugar and sauces
Oh so fine

Bring to a simmer
For one full hour
Oh hongshaorou, hongshaorou, it takes time
Reduce the liquid
Until it's creamy
And say nihao
To hongshaorou
So warm and tender
So rich and fragrant
A classic Chinese red braised pork

Food is so powerful in bringing cultures together - something I learned when I lived in China. So let's travel, eat, cook, and learn from each other! I am a filmmaker from Berlin, Germany and make weekly videos about cooking and food culture.
