Dongpo meat, also known as roll meat and Dongpo stewed pork, is a famous traditional dish in Meishan and Jiangnan area. Dongpo meat is found in Zhejiang, Sichuan, Hubei and other cuisines, and the practices vary from place to place. Some are boiled and then fired, some are boiled and then steamed, and some are boiled and juiced directly.

The main ingredients and shapes of Dongpo meat are very similar, the main ingredients are half fat and half thin pork, finished dishes are neatly yarded mahjong pieces, red and bright, colored like agate, pick up a piece to taste, soft and not rotten, fat and not greasy.

Dongpo meat is legendary for the Northern Song Dynasty poet Su Dongpo (Sichuan Meishan people) created, the earliest birthplace is Meishan, Sichuan. The prototype is Xuzhou return meat, one of the four treasures of Xuzhou Dongpo.

Song Shenzong ten years (1077) April, Su Shi went to Xuzhou to know the state. On July 7, the Yellow River burst at the Cao Village of Meizhou, and on August 21, floods besieged Xuzhou. The water level was as high as twenty-eight feet. Su Shi died with his own body, and he led the forbidden army Wu Ying camp, and the whole city to fight against flood and embankment and protect the city. After more than 70 hard days and nights, the city of Xuzhou was finally saved. All the people in the city were cheered and encouraged. In order to thank this well-known state for its leadership and co-existence with the people of Xuzhou, they killed pigs and slaughtered sheep one after another, and took wine and vegetables to the government to comfort them. Su Shi couldn't refuse to give up. After taking it, he personally instructed his family to make braised pork and gave it back to the people who participated in the flood fighting. After the people eat, they feel that the meat is fat but not greasy, crispy and tasty, and it is called "return meat". Since then, the "return meat" has been circulating in Xuzhou, and has become a traditional dish in Xuzhou. This is recorded in "Xuzhou Literature and History Materials", "Xuzhou Stories", "Xuzhou Ancient and Modern Ming Xiao".

Yuanfeng three years (AD 1080) in February 1st, Su Shi was derogated to Huangzhou deputy director of the regiment. He built his own land and made it known as "Dongpo". This is the origin of "Su Dongpo". During his stay in Huangzhou, he personally cooked the braised pork and wrote the experience into the poem "eating pork". Su Shi's braised pork, cooked in Xuzhou and Huangzhou, was only influential locally and had little fame in the country. It was Su Shi's "Dongpo meat" in Hangzhou for the second time.

Song Zhe Zong Yuan Yuan four years (1089) January 3rd, Su Shi came to Hangzhou for fifteen years. Yuan you five years in five and June, the western part of the heavy rain, Taihu flooded, large crops flooded. Because Su Shi took effective measures as early as possible, the people in Western Zhejiang had passed the most difficult period. He organized migrant workers to dredge West Lake and build bridges to make West Lake look new. The people in Hangzhou are very grateful to Su Shi for doing this good thing. Everyone praises him as a wise parent. I heard that he liked pork best when he was in Xuzhou and Huangzhou, so during the Spring Festival, everyone would take the pig * s wine to pay him a new year call. When Su Shi received it, he instructed his family to cut the meat into cubes and burn it red and crisp. Then he gave it to the migrant workers who participated in the dredging of the West Lake.
