Three-cup Spare Ribs



I made this based on the recipe for  Three-cup chicken and since the spare ribs that I used was only 450 gm, I halved the amount of sauces, wine and sesame oil.  Tossed in some red capsicum for nutrition as well as for colour.  This time around I used tablespoon measurements for the liquids as I've already measured them out in my previous post.  So should I still call this dish Three-cup Spare Ribs or otherwise?  To me, the name doesn't matter as long as the dish tastes good!
 








I can't get tired of this dish as I simply adore the fragrance of fresh basil leaves.  Eat this with rice....Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 450 gm spare pork ribs  - cut to 2.5 inch lengths
  • 1 red capsicum - cut into strips
  • 1 red chilli - sliced
  • 3  Tbsp + 1/2 Tbsp Shaoxing wine for seasoning
  • 2  Tbsp light soya sauce
  • 1/4  Tbsp dark soya sauce
  • 1  Tbsp sugar
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • 6 pips garlic - chopped
  • 5 gm ginger - sliced thinly
  • 1/4  tsp salt
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp sesame oil
Preparation
  1. Wash clean the pork ribs, season with 1/8  tsp salt and 1/2 Tbsp wine.  Set aside.
  2. Heat up wok with 1 Tbsp sesame oil, add in the seasoned pork ribs, fry till light brown.
  3. Push aside the pork ribs, add in the remaining 1/2  Tbsp sesame oil, ginger slices, chopped garlic and chilli, stir-fry.
  4. Add in the light and dark soya sauces, 2 Tbsp wine, sugar, mix well with the pork ribs.
  5. Cover the wok and let ribs cook under medium low fire for about 45 mins. or till the ribs are tender.
  6. Test for taste, stir in the capsicum slices, fry for a while.
  7. Toss in the fresh basil leaves, turn off fire and add in 1 Tbsp Shaoxing wine, give it a quick stir.
  8. Dish out and serve hot with rice.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
