Honey Pork ribs


I made this for dinner recently and must admit that indeed, the ribs were finger-licking good!  Most important is that this was super easy to prepare!







Bake the ribs and blanch some vegetables and a wholesome meal is ready in a jiffy!

Ingredients
  • 600 gm prime pork ribs
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp honey
  • 3 pips garlic, crushed
  • 1/2  tsp salt
  • 1  tsp oyster sauce
  • 1/8 tsp dark soya sauce
  • 1.1/2  tsp light soya sauce
  • A dash of pepper
Sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1  Tbsp honey
  • 1/2  tsp each of :  salt and light soya sauce
  • 1.2  tsp chicken granules
  • 1.1/2 tsp cornflour + 3  tsp water to thicken
Vegetables for salad, as desired.

Preparation
  1. Wash the ribs under running water, drain, pat dry, set aside.
  2. Mix the crushed garlic, salt, oystser sauce, honey, pepper and light and dark soya sauce.
  3. Mix the marinade into the ribs, set aside for about 6 hours or preferably overnight, covered, in the fridge.  Turn the ribs once in a while to ensure that the marinade has saturated the meat.
  4. If the ribs have been refrigerated, take them out at least an hour before cooking.
  5. Place the ribs on a foil lined baking tray, devoid of marinade, let rest for about 1/2 an hour @ room temperature.
  6. Bake the ribs in a preheated oven @ 200 deg C, roast for 15 mins, then turn them over to roast for another 15 mins. until the ribs are done, preferably with a slightly singed edge, or put under the grill for 2 mins.
  7. Cook the sauce and add in any balance marinade, fine tune to taste and preferred consistency.
  8. Remove the ribs from the oven, let rest for 5 mins. and pour the sauce over them.
  9. Serve immediately with some salad.

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Cherry Loaf Cake ~ 樱桃蛋糕

I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
