Twice cooked pork (回鍋肉, literally “meat that has been returned to the pot”; also called double cooked pork), is probably the best-known Sichuan-style Chinese dish. The dish is said to have originated from the Qing Dynasty, while the Qianlong Emperor toured Sichuan. Qianlong demanded a feast in every stop that he made, and, when he approached one particular village, the villagers fretted. The crops had not been harvesting well that year and there may not have been enough to host the emperor. Fearing prosecution, the villagers hastily dumped their leftovers into the pot, cooked them again (thus “twice cooking” them) and served the resulting dish to the emperor. To their surprise, the emperor enjoyed it, and so the “twice cooked pork” became a famous Sichuanese dish.
