Hello everyone. Today I am going to make another pork rib dish – Flavoured ribs (风味排骨). Most Chinese (espeacially me) share an exceptionally deep interest towards pork ribs, almost like a religion. However, it is hard to see the reason behind this – pork ribs are superb when it comes to sweetness, tenderness and juiciness.
The flavoured ribs is an appetizing dish – spicy but refreshing, sweet but light and a little salty but with great fragrance. It is pretty simple and straight forward dish – fry the ribs and coat them with some other ingredients.
- 500 g pork ribs
- 3 ginger slices
- 1 tbs oyster sauce
- 1 tbs cooking wine
- 1 tsp dark soy sauce
- Salt & pepper
- 1 long scallion, white parts only
- 1 medium red paprika
- 1 medium green paprika
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 2 slices of ginger
- 10 dried chillies
- 2 tbs laoganma (老干妈) or black bean paste (豆豉酱)
- 1 tsp five spice powder
- White sesame
- [Optional] Freshly chopped corianders
1. First, cut the pork ribs into 3 cm size. Marinate the ribs with ginger, oyster sauce, cooking wine, salt, pepper and dark soy sauce for at least 10 minutes.
2. Next, diced the scallion, garlic, ginger, paprika and dried chillies. Prepare some freshly chopped coriander too.
3. Heat up enough oil with a medium heat. Fry the pork ribs for 4 minutes till brown. Drain off the oil and put aside for now.
4. Using some of fried oil, stir fry the chopped garlic, ginger and dried chillies for a minute. Add in the paprika and saute for another 30 seconds.
5. Add in 2 tbs of laoganma and continue the stir-frying process for another minute.
6. Put the fried ribs back into the pan and mix well. Sprinkle in white sesame and five spice powder. Garnish with some coriander and then serve on a flat plate.
This dish is perfect with rice, and goes well as a beer snack. Just remember to serve while they’re still warm!
