The second one... Translated means Hot Pot Meat. So I guess the Chinese name is not really accurate.

WRONG! I asked and it really means twice-cooked. I thought it was huo guo rou (Hot pot). Hui guo rou is an old, special and tasty way to cook again the leftovers from the day before.

HUI GUO ROU go back to the pot, Meat!
HUO GUO ROU Meat in the pot on the fire.
