Caotou circle is a famous dish in Jiangsu and Shanghai made of caotou and Feichang. Caotou, known to people in Jiangsu and Shanghai, is a wild vegetable, also known as southern alfalfa and cauliflower. It is usually fried with tender buds only in spring. Grass head is a wild vegetable, which absorbs more oil. When frying grass head, you need to put more edible oil than usual to become fresh and tender. Therefore, it is most appropriate to match grass head with fat intestines. Grass head circle adds red stewed fat intestines circle on the basis of wine fragrant grass head. It has strong wine aroma and unique flavor. My husband repeatedly said after eating it, how can this dish be delicious.


250g straw head
100g cooked pig large intestine
5 grams of Baijiu
5g sugar
3 g salt
10g raw soy sauce
5 grams of soy sauce
2G scallion
2 g ginger
10g water starch


Step 1
Clean up the pig's large intestine, wash it, marinate it, cool it and cut it into circles. You can also buy finished products cooked in brine, which is easier.

Step 2
Pour oil into the pot, add onion and ginger, and stir fry until fragrant. This step is very important. The smell of large intestine is heavy. Stir the smell of scallion and ginger can give the finished product fragrance and cover up a lot of the smell of large intestine.

Step 3
Pour pig large intestine circle into the pot and stir fry for a while.

Step 4
Add soy sauce and stir fry until the large intestine is evenly colored.

Step 5
Add an appropriate amount of water, bring to a boil over high heat, and turn to low heat for 5 minutes.

Step 6
Starch is mixed with water into wet starch water. After the large intestine is tasted, add wet starch water to thicken.

Step 7
After the sauce thickens, turn off the fire and take out the stewed large intestine ring.

Step 8
Pick and clean fresh grass. Wild vegetables grow outdoors and have a lot of dust. They need to be rinsed several times to remove the sand between the leaves.

Step 9
Pour oil into the pot and put the straw head into the pot. Wild vegetables eat oil, and grass also eats oil. We can put more oil in wild vegetables than usual, and the taste of the finished products will be good.

Step 10
Stir fry and change the color of the grass. Sprinkle the Baijiu into the frying pan and stir fry quickly. The grass is very fresh and tender in this season, so it is not suitable to stir fry for a long time. It is easy to become rotten and affect the taste. Fried dishes with wine can increase the taste of dishes. Some people will worry about whether they will get drunk after adding wine. That's too much to worry about. High temperature stir frying will accelerate the volatilization of alcohol, leaving only the aroma of wine, and the amount of wine added to stir frying is also very small.

Step 11
Spread the fried straw head on the plate for shaping, or not. I just want to make the finished product more appetizing.

Step 12
Stack the cooked large intestine circle on the grass head, and pour the sauce on the large intestine circle. The straw circle with strong aroma and unique flavor is ready. Come and have a taste.
