The dish that I made

This is a famous Sichuan Chinese dish. It originated in early last century. There is a story behind, and I feel this story is real. There was a family in Sichuan province early last century, and the family really liked eating fish. So, they cooked fish in a refined way. One day, some ingredients were left after fish was eaten up. The housewife tried not to waste them, then she used those ingredients to make a pork dish, which turned out to be very attractive, and to be popular quickly.

There are different ways to make it, but they are all alike with minor differences. For example, some people use carrot and black fungus as side ingredients, while some others use dried slices of tender bamboo shoots, or sweet pepper green and black fungus. The point lies in preparation more than cook.
