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.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it! Wool Roll Bread ~  毛线球面包 (adapted from 'here' with adjustments) Ingredients 300 gm high protein flour or bread flour 30 gm sugar 1 tsp seasalt 1 egg  (55 gm or 65 gm) 70 or 80 ml milk 25 gm melted butter Egg wash (1 whole egg + 1.1/2 tsp water to dilute) Meat floss or whatever you wish to use as filling 80 ml warm mil

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
