Ingredients

  • 600ml groundnut oil
  • 1kg pork spare ribs, separated into individual ribs

For the braising sauce

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer or large wok and deep-fry the spare ribs until they are brown and crisp. Do this in several batches, draining each cooked batch well on kitchen paper.

  • STEP 2

    Combine all the sauce ingredients in a large pan and bring to the boil. Add the deep-fried spare ribs, cover and simmer for about 1 hr or until they are tender. Drain off the sauce and remove any remaining fat.

  • STEP 3

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Put the spare ribs on a rack in a roasting tin and bake in the oven for 15-20 mins until they are brown, basting with the braising sauce every 5 mins.

  • STEP 4

    Using a cleaver or a sharp, heavy knife, chop the spare ribs into 6cm-long pieces. Turn them onto a warm serving platter and serve immediately.

RECIPE TIPS
STORING THE SAUCE

The braising sauce can be frozen after step 2 and reused the next time you make this dish. If you want to get ahead, the dish can be prepared up to this point the day before.
