As I prefer to cook simple and easy dishes, I seldom prepare a stew dish because there are quite a number of ingredients in it.
According to Wikipedia, 'A stew is a combination of solid  food ingredients that have been cooked in liquid and served in the resultant gravy.  Ingredients in a stew can include any combination of vegetables [such as carrots, potatoes, onions, beans, corn, peppers and tomatoes] or meat, especially tougher meats suitable for slow-cooking, such as beef or pork ribs. Seasoning and flavourings may also be added. Stews are typically cooked at a relatively low temperature [simmered not boiled],  allowing flavors to mingle'.
This stew turned out to be an easy dish to prepare though there are a number of ingredients needed.  It is a little spicy, tangy and the ribs are infused with the seasoning flavour.  Nice stew to serve with rice as a One Dish Meal. Serving the stew in a claypot, retains the heat and aroma of the curry flavour.
Recipe adapted from Yum Yum Magazine No. 103 with slight modifications
400 gm meaty spare ribs - blanched in boiling water and rinsed
1 cob corn - cut into pieces
1 carrot - cut into pieces
1 large tomato - cut into pieces
1 red capsicum - cut into pieces
1 yellow onion - cut into pieces
1 tbsp cooking oil
1 1/2 tbsp curry powder [mix with some water into a paste]
1 - 1 1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tsp salt to taste
1/2 tsp sugar
500 ml water
1 stalk coriander - chopped

  1. Heat oil in a non-stick wok, saute onions until aromatic, add in curry powder.  Fry until fragrant.
  2. Add in spare ribs, carrots and corn pieces.  Stir fry to mix well, add in seasoning followed by water.
  3. Add in capsicum and tomatoes pieces. Bring to boil, then cover to simmer ingredients for 40 minutes or until ribs are tender and gravy is reduced. Transfer to a claypot, bring to boil again.
  4. Remove from heat, sprinkle chopped coriander leaves.
  5. Serve immediately.

    Kimmy, there's lots of liew in this stew and it looks very delicious! In particular I like the addition of corn.

    Hi Phong Hong, this is a lovely simple pork rib stew. So many ingredients in one pot which I prepared for a One Dish Meal... otherwise I will make the sauce thicker. Love the sourish and a little spicy flavour of the sauce.
