Stewed Pork Over Rice (Lu Rou Fan)

Lu Rou Fan, a stewed pork dish served over rice.Christie Johnston

This pork dish, which is meant to be served over rice, takes its distinctively briny flavor from a combination of dried shrimp, dried scallops, and dried mushrooms, all of which should be soaked separately in hot water for at least an hour to soften them. We featured this dish in Matt Gross's story "Taipei, Family Style" (April 2010).
