Jingdu Spare Ribs

Actually I didn't intend to put up any post this week as I have planned to use the available time to "visit" my blogger friends to read up those posts that I have missed. However last night saw from Sonia's post that Mui Mui has extended the Tomato event for The Little Thumb Up till 4 April instead, so I decided to post this up to catch the deadline.

After such long period of eating outside food on every Sunday, I decided that I should try to prepare simple home cooked meals instead. Since I am starting to cook so must go around to look for recipes, Cass is one of the best choice since she is well known good at cooking. When I read through Cass's blog, I saw her highly recommended this dish. 1st, I looked at the ingredients, all can be found in my house, 2ndly the steps seem quite easy so I decided to try this out on last Sunday.

Recipe adapted from 搵到食

Ingredients :
600 g spare ribs (I didn't weigh, about 8 pieces)
2 tbsp corn flour
1 tsp diced garlic
adequate corriander leaves for decoration

Marinate Ingredients :
1/2 tsp fermented red beandcurd  (南乳)
1/4 tsp five spice powder   
1 tsp shao xing rice wine (花雕酒)
1/2 tsp chicken stock - optional (I omitted)
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tsp pepper,
1/2 tsp sesame oil

 Seasoning Sauce : 
2 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp Chinese vinegar 
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce (急汁)
1 tbsp tomato sauce

1. Cut the spare rib into short pieces and pour into a big bowl with marinate ingredients, mix well and marinate for at least an hour (I marinated for 2 hours plus).
2. Mix well the spare ribs with corn flour and fry in hot oil until golden brown and cooked.  Dish and drain.
3. Heat up 2 tbsp oil and fry the diced garlic until fragrant. Put in the fried spare ribs and mix well.
4. Add in the seasoning sauce and stir fry until the sauce almost dry up.
5. Dish up onto a plate and garnish with coriander leaves.

This dish is just as what Cass has claimed, better than restaurant standard lol. Oh this dish is really finger licking good, the meat is juicy and tasty, even though I marinated only for 2 hrs plus, the seasoning sauce is also  very flavorful. I can't believe I can cook up such delicious dish hahaha... definitely a keeper! 

I’m submitting this to Little Thumbs Up - Tomato that is currently hosted by Mui Mui @ My Little Favourite DIY. and Zoe @ Bake For Happy Kids.

  13. I don't think I've tried these before. Is it the same as King To spare ribs?

    1. Fern, I think Jingdu spare ribs is the same as King To spare ribs, sound same to me lol.

    2. I mean sound same to me cos JingDu is in Mandarin, King To sound to me like Cantonese.


Thank you for dropping by.
