1 slab/rack of pork ribs, about 1.3kgs 1/2 cup soy sauce 1/2 cup vinegar 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 cup pineapple juice 1/4 tsp ground peppercorn 2 bay leaves 3 star anise 6 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 tsp grated ginger 2 cups water 2 tbsp oil
sesame seeds or leeeks, for garnishing (optional)
Cut the spare ribs between the bone. Wash. Drain.Set Aside. In a pan, heat oil. Brown the pork ribs, both sides. Add in garlic and ginger. Put all the ingredients. Lower the heat. Cover. Let simmer for 45minutes to 1 hr or until the meat is tender. Add some water if needed. The minced onions also gives a nice thickness to the sauce. When done cooking, there should be a little sauce left (but my daughter loves the sauce, so she wants more of it). Garnish with spring onions, leaks, sesame seeds ~ whatever you prefer. I added pineapple chunks. This serves 6-8 persons. Enjoy!
