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.

  10. Love the colour. Looks very delicious. Must be really good with rice. I have been wanting to cook 3C chicken but haven't not done it yet. My Taiwanese friend once cooked it and it was really delicious.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Tau Yu Bak ~ Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce ( 豆油肉 )

  'Tau you bak' in Hokkien or 'Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce' in Cantonese is a very homey dish.  The main sauces are light and dark soy sauce with the addition of some spices like cinnamon, pepper and star anise and in this recipe I also added some oyster sauce, which is optional.  The addition of hard boiled eggs infused with the intense gravy makes this a very delicious and tasty dish.  Pair it with some sambal belacan to make it more appetising and appealing. Tau Yu Bak  ~   Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce ( 豆油肉 ) Ingredients 700 gm pork belly cut into 1.1/2 inch 1 Tbsp oyster sauce 1 Tbsp light soy sauce 1.1/2 Tbsp dark soy sauce 8 cloves garlic 1 cinnamon stick 2 star anise some pepper rock sugar to taste Hard boiled eggs Method Marinate the pork belly with oyster and light soy sauce for a few hours or preferably overnight. Saute the garlic with cinnamon stick and star anise with some oil in a wok. Toss in the marinated pork.  Stir-fry, add in the some hot water

Sunflower Oatmeal Cookies ~ 向日葵麦片曲奇饼

  These cookies are crunchy on the outside and a bit soft and chewy on the inside.  They are healthy cookies with sunflower seeds and whole grains giving a unique and delicious flavour.  I used instant oats in this recipe and they tend to soften the cookies somewhat but if you prefer them to be more crunchy when you consume the next day, just pop them into the oven toaster for a minute or two. You may like to add this onto your CNY to-do list of cookies. Sunflower Oatmeal Cookies    ~   向日葵麦片曲奇饼   Ingredients 60 gm butter 80 gm brown sugar 20 gm caster sugar 120 gm plain flour 1 egg 1 tsp vanilla 1/4 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda 1/4 tsp salt 100 gm raw sunflower seeds 80 gm oats (instant or rolled oats) I used instant oats Method With a hand mixer beat butter with brown and caster sugar till well combined.  Add in egg and vanilla. Sift in the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon and salt.  Mix well. Fold in the sunflower seeds followed by the oats.  Mix till well combined.
