This simple yet delicious recipe I got from my brother-in-law. When I say it is easy I really mean throw everything in the wok. cook for an hour, serve and be amazed.
5 cm bit of Fresh ginger (grated)
2 cloves of garlic (pressed)
1 onion onion (diced finely)
a little oil (for frying)
500g – 1kg of ribs (i prefer shorter ribs) (separated to individual ribs)
1 dl sugar (Muscovado)
1 dl soy sauce
1-2 table spoons of fish sauce
juice of 4 limes
approx 1/2 liter of water
1 bunch coriander (chopped coarsely, put 1 dl of the leafs away for garnish) but use stalks for the sauce.
4 sprigs of spring onions (chopped. keep aside one fistful for for garnish)
Salt and black pepper
1 (or less if you are not keen on hot food) Sliced chili (I prefer habanero, chopped finely for garnish).
Prepare all ingredients (i.e chop, dice and juice all required ingredients)
In a wok fry the ribs in some oil until they get some colour on all sides.
Add ginger, garlic, coriander , onion and spring onions, and season with salt and pepper, fry for a bit longer.
Add the sugar
Add the limes juice
Add the soy sauce and fish sauce (don’t get fish sauce on yourself it stinks for a long time)
Add water (the ribs should be covered with liquid) and let it simmer until the sauce is reduced to a sticky mess. keep on adding water if required if the sauce dries out before the ribs are cooked.
Before serving garnish with the chili, spring onions and coriander
This recipe goes really well with my Chinese dumplings recipe.
