Fuqi feipian ("sliced lung by the married couple") is a popular Sichuan dish, served cold or at room temperature, which is made of thinly sliced beef and beef offal. Common ingredients in the modern version include beef heart, tongue and tripe, and a generous amount of various spices, including Szechuan peppercorns. True to its Sichuan roots, the desired taste should be both spicy and mouth-numbing. Despite its name, actual lung is rarely used.
The Art of Chinese Cuisine
Although this book is only 208 pages it is the finest and most informative Chinese cookbook I have ever read (and cooked from). Unlike other cookbooks each recipe or chapter is proceeded by a dissertation on the style and history of this particular dish. And at times poetry is included that relates to the dish or style of cooking.
