Boneless Chinese Style Ribs

If you're a collector of condiments like me its highly likely you have all manner of Asian sauces and spices gathering dust in your fridge and pantry. This is a satisfying outlet for all those jars fast approaching their use-by date. These boneless ribs have much less fat and sugar and so much more subtle Asian flavor than their deep fried take away counterparts.

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb of pork loin boneless ribs

2 tbs vegetable oil + little more for frying

1 small onion thinly sliced

2 tbs grated ginger (or the jarred lazy ginger)

8 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup of Chinese wine or dry sherry

2 tbs kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)

1 tsp Chinese five spice powder

2 tbs smokey bbq sauce (optional)

2tbs sweet chili sauce

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Combine all the ingredients except the pork to make a marinade.

  3. Add the pork and toss to cover. Leave to bathe for an hour or so.

  4. Heat an oven proof pan till smoking, add a small amount of vegetable oil.

  5. Add the ribs and cook on one side until brown.

  6. Turn the ribs, add the rest of the marinade and cook in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes.

  7. Leave to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving with a little extra sweet chili sauce.

Lovely Local Tip: If you're in range of a Publix Supermarket, the boneless ribs are on sale until next Wednesday!
