Spare Ribs in Black Vinegar Sauce

The dish was prepared during CNY.  A very tasty and appetising spare ribs dish that's easy to prepare [can cooked a day earlier, it tasted even better].  Goes well with steaming hot rice and a plain stir-fry vegetable.  
700 gm spare ribs - cut into bite size pieces
8 shallots - peeled
2 star anise
5cm piece cinnamon stick
1 tbsp oil
150 ml black vinegar
3 tbsp light soy sauce
3 tbsp sugar
600 ml water
  1. Blanched spare ribs in boiling water to remove scums.  Rinsed in water and drained.
  2. Heat oil to saute shallots until aromatic.  Add in star anise, cinnamon stick and stir fry until fragrant.
  3. Add in spare ribs, seasoning and bring to boil.  Lower the heat and continue to cook until the sauce is thickened.
  4. Dish up to serve.

This remind me 猪脚 醋 while you mentioned black vinegar. I like vinegar with pork. This look good.

Hi Vivian, taste a little sourish sweet but slightly different cos' there is no ginger used. Taste even better the next day.

HI Kimmy! Never had this before... Is it very sour? If not, will definitely cook this for the kids! They love pork ribs...

Hi Chef, not very sourish cos' of the sugar. You can taste to adjust the seasoning before adding all the black vinegar.

Hi Phong Hong, yes, you can try with meaty pig trotters too. Sure should be nice.

Hi Esther, yes my hubby couldn't figure out what I add to cook this dish. Doesn't taste light soy sauce with lime yet sourish sweet.
