Sweet & Sour Pork Ribs

I woke up early today. It was a difficult drag, as we were out at Mount Faber trying to catch the Perseid meteor shower close to midnight yesterday. Alas, Murphy’s Law reigned, and we were greeted by cloudy skies. But the trip was fruitful, as we had late dinner, whilst overseeing the beautiful Singapore skyline. Never knew having McDonald’s in the car can be so romantic (blush…). And we discovered 4 restaurants on the hilltop to visit and to blog about next time. Yipee!

After washing up, CY went to the gym and I decided to go to the market to buy some pork ribs for today’s menu. As we were strolling along the way, smooth rustling wind was running through my hair. I felt calm and happy. Simple pleasure such as this can really light up one’s day.

Today’s menu is also simple. I discovered this from Pig Pig’s corner. She was kind enough to recommend this over the braised sweet soy chicken via email. Thank you, Ann. Also, I would like to thank you people out there for sharing your recipes without asking for returns, which is heart-warming.

As for today’s recipe, it’s her recipe with some adaptations, since we are staying in different parts of the world; it cannot be exactly the same. Right? (UK & Singapore)

Serve 3

0.6kg Pork Ribs – 200g per person
1.5 - 2 tbsp Dark Soy Sauce (老抽)
1 tbsp Soy sauce
0.5 tbsp Vinegar
1 tbsp Black rice vinegar
20 g Rock Sugar (see below)

Place all ingredients in a pot.
Add just enough water to cover all the ribs.
Bring to boil, lower heat and simmer until meat is tender and sauce is thick and sticky.
End result:
Another one.
