Pig fallopian tubes (Chinese: 生肠; pinyin: shēng cháng; Cantonese: sang cheong) is a traditional, Malaysian stir-fry dish.

Preparation and description

The dish is prepared by stir-frying fallopian tubes (sometimes the uterus)[1] of pigs and serving chopped with vegetables and sauce such as kung pao sauce[2] or soy sauce with ginger and onions;[3] the meat is relatively flavorless but is a good vehicle for sauce. Other protein sources such as dried shrimp may be added.[4] The texture of the meat has been described as combining crunch with springiness.[1][2]

Although traditional, the dish is not often served in Singapore.[4]

Cultural impact

Consumption of pig fallopian tubes supposedly has a beneficial effect on a woman's fertility.[4] It has been categorized by Catherine Ling of CNN as one of the "10 grossest foods in Singapore".[2]

The dish is sometimes imprecisely referred to as pig intestine.[5] One Singapore restaurant was serving it in 2015 as "Famous Pig's Intestines".[3]
