Origin Story: Hong Shao Rou, or braised pork, is classic Chinese comfort food with its layers of meat, fat, and sauce. And when word struck that KFC was suspending its longtime slogan, ‘finger lickin’ good’ to promote COVID safety, the opportunity was too good to be true. Pair a beloved Chinese dish with a well-known international slogan and you’ve got yourself a winner.
