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!

  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.

Abalone Soup ~ CNY 2011

Hi, I'm back!  Made this Abalone Soup for the reunion dinner and the soup was really delicious.  Abalone is 'Bao Yu' in Cantonese, 'Bao' sounds like 'guaranteed' and 'Yu' sounds like 'excess' so put together it sounds like 'guaranteed excess'!   Now, that's something to look forward to, to usher in the New Year!  I used fresh abalone and it was my first experience handling this and thought that it would be a daunting task.  Surprisinlgy it was not to be and removing them from their shells and cleaning them weren't that difficult after all.
