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
- Blanched spare ribs in boiling water to remove scums. Rinsed in water and drained.
- Heat oil to saute shallots until aromatic. Add in star anise, cinnamon stick and stir fry until fragrant.
- Add in spare ribs, seasoning and bring to boil. Lower the heat and continue to cook until the sauce is thickened.
- Dish up to serve.
