There were too many connective tissue, which was complicated by the process. However, the cunning Chinese have come up with a way to get around all these problems. The result is a dish called rousan.

They were protected from moisture. You need food. Rousan he even got the unofficial name of “meat cotton”, since it resembled cotton fibers too much in texture. The method of preparation is universal. It turns out just as good. True with cooking rousana will have to tinker a bit. But such a product can be stored for years. So.

To understand the principle of cooking. Meat is taken, cut into small pieces. Slices are cooked until tender, with a small amount of salt or salt-containing liquid.
