This pork dish, the most famous of traditional Shanxi cuisine, originated during the Southern and Northern Dynasties (420-581) among aristocrats in the southern Shanxi city of Linfen, and then spread to the provincial capital of Taiyuan, eventually becoming a typical restaurant dish during the Song Dynasty (960-1279).
