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.
