Red braised whole fish aka Hong Shao Yu, is a very common dish in Chinese and Taiwanese cuisine. It is traditionally made by cooking a whole fish with rice wine, ginger, scallions, soy sauce, and the star ingredient of chili bean paste.
Red Braised Chicken (or aka Red Cooked Chicken) is such a delicious chicken dish – it’s made by browning chicken and then simmering with soy sauce, ginger, green onions, and more!
We love making red braised pork belly – and sometimes we like to make modifications to it! For example, we have a family friend that has fresh bamboos in their yard, and so every year when it’s bamboo shoots season – we make red braised pork belly with bamboo shoots 竹筍紅燒肉!
