With golden color, the pork meat was wrapped in a layer of sweet and sour sauce mixing sugar with vinegar. It tasted crispy, slightly sweet and sour, and a little spicy, which was appetizing and appropriate for all seasons. The history of the dish could be dated back to Qing dynasty. At that time, many foreigners in Guanzhou liked Chinese food, especially Sweet and Sour Pork Ribs, but they did not like the bone in ribs. So chefs in Guangdong picked pork ribs off bones, added mixed condiments of seasonings and starch, made them into meat balls, fried them in oil pan till they turned into gold in color and crispy in taste, and then dressed them with sugar and vinegar marinade sauce. The dish was sour and sweet, and soon became widely welcomed by customers both home and abroad. Sweet and Sour Pork Ribs had a quite long history, but after changes made it was renamed “GuLao Pork”. However, the foreigners often pronounced the name “ GuLao” into “GuLu” and also people would make “gulu” sounds during chewing the meat because of its high elasticity, thus these two names for the dish “ GuLu” and “GuLao” co-existed for a long time. Sweet and Sour Pork(“GuLu Pork”) enjoyed high reputation at home and abroad. Sour pork with canned pineapple is more often seen in the market.

    Remarks: it was said that in the thirties of last century in old Beijing city, there was an old man who made tofu living in a warren that was 4 miles away from the northeast of the Forbidden City. Because the neighbors and those who bought tofu from him only knew that his family name was Chen, so they called him old man Chen. In fact, old man Chen was not very old since he was only above fifty years old. But he looked much older than his actual age, and his seasoned and weather-beaten faces revealed his vicissitudes and hardship of life in the past. He came from northeast of China and brought up his only son himself after his wife died in uncontrollable postpartum bleeding. However, this was never the end of his tragedy life and something unexpected might happy any time. In a mine disaster, his only son who was digging coal in the mine at that time died. His daughter-in-law eloped with a man and left his 4-year-old grandson dependent on him for living. In those difficult years when there were natural disasters and wars everywhere in northeastern China, old man Chen was no longer able to survive in his hometown, so he moved down south to Beijing with his grandson. Through overcoming many difficulties, they finally settled down in a warren and made a hard living for selling tofu. Although old man Chen was proficient in making tofu, due to limitted conditions, he could only sell a few boards of tofu and a few kilograms of tin sheets of bean curb to earn little money. With the little money he could anly afford to buy beans to make tofu. The only food for him and his grandson is the leftover bean curb residues, which could only make sure them to get adequately fed. His daily life repeated constantly in this way. After buying beans home, old man Chen selected carefully high-quality beans to make tofu. Then he would make the leftover beans into been sauce. His tofu was popular with customers including purchasing staffs of Wangfujing Roast Duck Restaurant( a famous restaurant in Beijing) and they asked him to deliver tofu to the restaurant everyday. When his grandson, Gouzi, came to the age of 8, old man Chen decided to send him to school. However, he had no extra money to afford his grandson’s study after spending all their savings in buying their little house. Old man Chen set up his mind to earn more money. Thanks to his good workmanship of making tofu and the big order from Wangfujin Roast Duck Restaurant, they could still make ends meet. Every morning, old man Chen would deliver tofu in person to the restaurant with Gouzi. Gradually, they got familiar with the chef and could often see him roasting greasy ducks. Staring at the roast ducks dripping oil and burnt into bright red in color, Gouzi could not move his steps away. On the way home, he suddenly told his grandfather, “ Grandpa, I wanna eat roast duck!” “ Foolish child, I wanna eat, too. But we can not afford it.” the old man Chen said in a bitter smile. But Gouzi still insisted that he wanted to eat roast duck. Old man Chen promised that he would make more tofu to earn more money and then buy roast duck to him at the end of this year. It was soon came to the end of the year, the old man Chen had forgotten his words but Gouzi did not. On new year’s eve, Chen bought back half kilogram of pork and decided to make dumplings as dinner. At this time, Gouzi once again said that he wanted to eat roast duck. This made old man Chen embarrassed because he thought that Gouzi should have forgotton what he said but in deed he did not. Even if he had the money to buy a roast duck, the restaurant was closed at night. Let alone he had no money to do so. He was worried when seeing Gouzi depressed. Turnning over in his mind, Chen asked Gouzi to stay inside the house and he would make roast duck for him. Because old man Chen sent tofu to the roast duck restaurant everyday, he saw how to make and eat the roast duck. Thus he decided to make “roas duck” himself. He picked up the lean meat, cut it into thin slices, and fried them in pan with bean sauce. Then he diced the thin sheets of bean curb into squares. His own “roast duck” was done. Gouzi was so happy to roll the green Chinese onion and the “roast duck”, and enjoyed a happy new year’s dinner with his grandpa. Old man Chen sent Gouzi to school on the second year. After Gouzi graduated from school, he served as an apprentice in Quanjude (another famous roast duck restaurant of Beijing). With a few years of hard working and study, Gouzi became a good cook and he could eat roast duck very often, but he could never have the feelings of his first taste of “roast duck”. When he talked about this with his grandpa, old man Chen told him the truth. With continuous efforts, Gouzi improved grandpa’s “roast duck” and turned into today’s Sauteed Shredded Pork in Sweet Bean Sauce which has strong sauce flavor and tender pork shreds.

    Remarks: It was said that a long time ago in Szechuan there was a business family within which all members were fond of eating fish and particular about the seasoning and flavor of the fish. So they would use some spices such as spring onion, ginger, garlic, wine, vinegar and soy sauce,etc. to remove fishy odor when cooking fish. One night when the hostess were cooking another dish, she put the leftover ingredients the last time she cooked fish into this dish in order not to waste them. She thought that it might not taste good and her housband might not like the new flavor. Surprisingly, after the man came back, he started to wolf down the dish even before the rice was ready. The wife was worried because she had no idea her husband ate so fast whether because he was too hungry to care about the flavor or just because he liked the dish in deed. But later when her husband could not help to repeatedly praise the dish and ask her again and again how she cooked, she got rid of all her worries and told him the truth. And it were the ingredients of cooking fish that made the dish so delicious, so they started to call it “Fish Flavored Pork Slices”.
