Braised Pork Ribs with Peanuts ~ 花生闷排骨


My mum used to cook this dish but with a different part of the piggy.... the tail part, and it was a favourite among my siblings then.  But that part of the piggy wasn't my cup of tea and today I replicated this dish with pork ribs instead.   This is a comfort dish and it did pair well with a bowl of steaming hot rice.   I served a blanched veggie on the side and that's our dinner!

  3. Good morning Cheah! That's a delicious looking dish you've got there. I've never braised with peanuts before but I am sure I would love the softness of the peanut in this dish. Yummy!

  4. Hi Cheah,
    This dish is so flavourful and delicious that I would have extra bowls of steamed rice with just the gravy ^-^! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi Cheah, this looks delicious! How long do you have to simmer the pork ribs for until they are tender? Is 1 hour enough?

    1. I didn't look at the time.... if you use a pressure cooker, think it'll save a lot of time. Make sure you get the 'soft' peanuts, your grocer can help. You can add them together or cook the peanuts first. I was told that some 'hard' peanuts take a longer time to cook.

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.

Fried 'Nian Gao' ~ Sticky rice cake ~ CNY 2010

'Nian Gao' in Mandarin or 'Nin Ko' in Cantonese is a must-have item during CNY.  This sticky glutinous rice cake is symbolic as it carries a homonym that sounds like 'year~high/tall'.  For business people eating this will link them to prosperity and wealth and working people will look forward to career advancement, promotion. Slice them up when they're still soft, keep them in containers and they can be stored in the fridge for months. I normally steam and dip them in freshly grated young coconut mixed with some salt or just fry with beaten egg.  But this time around, I've decided to be a bit more 'challenging' and try out Elin's recipe.  Thanks, Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner   for sharing!
