Well here’s a dish that I cooked when my sister visited me here recently – spare ribs stew & steamed veggies – similar to my pork hamonado recipe.
1/2 kilo pork spare ribs, uncut
1 tbsp. of crushed garlic
1 onion, chopped
1 long cylinder of leak, cut about a inch long & sliced thinly
3 tbsp. of oyster sauce
2 tbsp. of sugar
about 10 peppercorns, crushed
Bagiou beans (or green beans), keep them long
Potatoes, cut like French fries or into wedges
Boil the spare ribs & get rid of the white stuff that rises. Continue boiling for about 30 minutes then add all the other ingredients except the vegetables. Place the potatoes in one side of the casserole & the string beans on the other side. Do not mix. Set them aside when cooked (the potatoes will take longer time). Continue simmering until the meat is tender & the sauce is thick. Put the spare ribs on a platter and pour the sauce evenly over the ribs. Arrange the potatoes & string beans next to it. Delicious!
