As the temperature goes up, Suzhou has come to the most beautiful time of spring.

A seasonal dish contest was recently held at Shuangta Street in Suzhou's Gusu district.

The bright-colored and soft braised soy sauce pork is Suzhou residents' favorite dish in spring.

Xu Qing living in the Wangshi Lane community is a skilled cook. She said the quality of pork is very important, which is preferably streaky pork sliced into two-square-inch cubes. Some rock candies can be added and water can be replaced by beer to make the pork more fragrant and tasty.
