Spare Ribs with Red Fermented Beancurd Paste ~ 南乳排骨


This was one of the dishes that I prepared during the recent Chinese New Year holidays.  These spare ribs were made with a marinade, cooked in a wok and finally grilled to add a bit of 'crunch', easy and fuss-free.  Drizzle on the sauce and they're ready to be served.  Meaty and tender, best eaten with your fingers!

  1. I like the idea of using preserved beancurd to marinate the spareribs. They must be very delicious and packed with flavours, Cheah.

    1. You're most welcome. I hardly deep fry my food, firstly it's not so healthy and secondly I don't have to clean up a greasy kitchen!

  4. Thanks for sharing. I usually deep-fry the ribs using this marinade but grilling makes it less messy and oily.

    1. Hi Irene. Thanks for dropping by. Yes, I've seen some recipes with this marinade but the ribs are deep-fried. I prefer to cook them till tender first, then grill them for a slight 'singe'. Works the same to me. Most important, my kitchen is not greasy :)

  5. Hi Soke Hah, I'm a 'fan' of yours for non-deep fried food yet tasted not least better than deep fried. I always love your idea of braising then grilling the meat. Very flavourful and no greasy kitchen. These pork ribs looks like Wuxi Pao Kuat... TQ.

  7. Hi Cheah, this is indeed a perfect way of non-deep fried preserved beancurd paste spareribs. When eating out, I like to order nam yue pa kuat as I don't like to cook this at home - reason, too greasy! Thanks for sharing, Cheah. Cheers :)
