Pork Spareribs Chinese-Style

Spareribs are one of the most popular Chinese dishes and this is a very simple and good recipe. Serves 4-6.


1 side pork spareribs
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 medium-sized piece of fresh ginger
2 tablespoons brown bean sauce
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons cornflour
2 or 3 spring onions, finely chopped


1. Chop spareribs into 1 inch (2.5 cm) portions and trim excess fat.
2. Mix brown bean sauce, garlic and ginger into a sauce. Bring oil to medium/high heat in a wok, blend in sauce and quickly add spareribs. Continue to stir-fry for about 1 minute.
3. Add sugar and water and bring immediately to boil, then simmer for 20 minutes.
4. Mix cornflour with 1 tablespoon of water and add to wok, stir-frying with a little more heat to glaze contents all over. This should take only 1 or 2 minutes. Serve immediately on heated dish, garnished with spring onions.
