In spring, in Shanghai, every family will never miss a dish, that is, marinated bacon, fresh meat and spring bamboo shoots, which means simmering slowly. When I was a child, no matter how hard my life was at home, I would cook a pot in this season and relieve my greed, as if I missed something if I didn’t eat this marinated tuxian. To make marinated tuxian, you need to cook it in a big pot. You can cook only when the ingredients are sufficient It's so delicious.

1. The salty taste of bacon varies from one family to another. My family’s is not very salty. If it is too salty, you need to soak some of the salty flavor with water to avoid over-salty.
2. Putting a large piece of bacon into the pot can reduce the salty taste of the soup. After picking it up, cut into small pieces and don't put it all in the pot. The bacon will not taste fragrant after it is soft and rotten.
3. Don't add any flavoring to improve the original flavor of this soup.
