Red Braised Spare Ribs ~ 红烧排骨

                                                           


These spare ribs are juicy yet tender and this is a rather 'dry' dish without much sauce.  I use balsamic vinegar to give it a slightly tangy flavour and I cook till the sauce sticks to the ribs while the oil starts to separate at the bottom of the wok.   So you can imagine how tasty the ribs are ..... finger licking good!




Red Braised Spare Ribs  ~    红烧排骨 

Ingredients
  • 1 kg spare ribs
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 2.1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp soya sauce
  • 3/4 Tbsp dark soya sauce
  • 1.1/2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp Shaoxing wine
  • 1/4 cup water or more to cover the ribs
  • 2 slices ginger
  • 3 cloves of garlic, lightly bruised
  • white part of spring onions
  • Spring onions and sesame seeds to garnish
Method
  1. Blanch the spare ribs in hot water, remove, rinse, keep aside.
  2. In a wok, melt the brown sugar in the tablespoon of oil. Then stir in the ribs.
  3. Add light and dark soya sauces, balsamic vinegar, Shaoxing wine, ginger, garlic, spring onions and water.  Mix to combine.  Cover with lid and let it simmer under medium low heat till ribs are cooked, stirring once in a while, about 30 mins.  Test for taste.
  4. Remove lid, turn on higher heat, cook and stir till sauce sticks to the ribs and oil starts to appear at the bottom of the wok.
  5. Transfer the ribs to a plate. Garnish with a sprinkling of lightly toasted sesame seeds and chopped spring onions.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!
