FOOCHOW LYCHEE PORK



荔枝肉
Lizhi Rou
a traditional dish in Fujian province
and
 loved by the Fuzhou people

In Fuzhou, Lizhi Rou is presented in various forms,
but
basically these are pork meat balls
 in Sweet and sour sauce.

To make the meat balls look like Lychee
the pork is not minced
but
 cut into small pieces
to
 create the uneven sides when fried,
similar
 in appearance to lychee skin

This dish is bright red in colour.
It gets its colour from their signature, traditional rice wine lees or residue.

To let people know that it is Lizhi Rou
Some lychees are used to decorate the sides of the dish
or
stir in canned lychee before dishing up
(make sure not all the lychee get the red colour)

Until now
I am sure you know how to prepare this dish

Marinate pork pieces with fish sauce, sugar, pepper & salt
not forgetting the most important ingredient,
Wine Lees

Tapioca flour or corn flour
together with beaten egg is used to bind the small pieces of pork
to make into balls

These meat balls are then deep fried
and
then cooked in Sweet & sour sauce

Enjoy!
