This pork ribs dish is not difficult to cook yet it is a delicious dish with fragrant sweet, sourish sauce to serve with rice. Very appetizing sauce and pork ribs are tender and has a bite that brings out the flavour and sweetness of the meat.
Moreover, this dish can be prepared immediately or earlier before meal time. Increased the sauce portion if you prefer more gravy.

You gotta cook more rice to go with this delicious dish, Kimmy.

Kimmy, this one is finger licking good! I just wonder, will the ribs be tender enough if fried like this?

HI Veronica, I did cook extra rice whenever I have curries or this kind of saucy dishes. They are especially appetising and it's a waste if there isn't enough rice to go with it. hehehe!

Hi Phong Hong, surprisingly the ribs when marinated and deep fried are tender and has a bite.Did you notice the bicarbonate of soda?It is this ingredient that tenderise the ribs. Sometimes, I use less or omit it and I need to braise the ribs with more sauce to make them tender. So it is a matter of choice. Those at the Chu Char stalls will definitely add the soda....
