As a traditional food of Daxian in Sichuan Province, the bright -red colored beef slices are as thin as sheets of paper and taste spicy, hot, delicious and crisp. Nibbling the beef in the mouth, the eaters enjoy an endless aftertaste. Legend has it that more than 80 years ago, a craftsman with the family name Liu made a living by selling salted beef in Daxian but end up with slack business. Keen on reforms, he finally made slice-shaped beef jerky. At dawn, he set up a stall for selling the beef jerk in the shopping center. In order to solicit the customers, he especially put a large thin beef slice before the stall with an oil lamp behind it. The beef slice shone bright and red with the vague shadow of the lamp, which drew a lot of attention of the passersby. After tasting the spicy, hot, crisp and delicious beef jerk, people called it “translucent beef”.
