Fried, steamed or stewed, the firewood-smoked pork is a fine home-made delicacy of Yi people.

Firewood-smoked pork is a special home-cooked delicacy of Yi people. The pork is from pigs which are free ranged instead of those fed by fodder. 

Therefore, the meat tasted differently. The cooking of firewood-smoked pork takes a while and more interestingly, it goes well with every kind of vegetable and doesn’t get stuck between teeth.

Firewood-smoked pork is regarded as a “peacemaker” since it can reduce the spicy taste when fried with chilies; if it is cooked along with bitter gourd, the bitterness will fade. In general, it is a fine food when fried, steamed or stewed.
