Originating in Shaanxi province, the rou jia mo is the Chinese ancestor to today's pulled-pork sandwich. The pork is cured and braised, then pulled apart and stuffed between a very simple pan-fried flatbread.
Note Roasted chilli oil is available from Asian grocers. Homemade lard will give a much better flavour than shop-bought. See our Nashville hot chicken recipe for more details on how to render it yourself. Order pickled pork belly ahead from your butcher.
