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 :)

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.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!
