This is another dish that reminds us of home, where our mom will put in so much effort into perfecting such a dish. This is a dish that is heartwarmingly light on the palate, and is perfect for your “3 dish 1 soup” dinners with your family. We added pork lard to the stuffing to give another depth of flavor to the dish. The steamed winter melon lightens the fatiness of the pork lard giving the dish a nice balance.
