Chinese Spareribs with shallots 紅葱烤排

When I flipping through a new cookbook that I bought recently, the chopped shallots sprinkle on top a braised spareribs photo was attracted me. I have no regret to try out this recipe, it was very flavourful with melted shallots (braised with a lot of shallots) mix with the soy sauce mixture, juicy , tender, and we especially love the chopped shallots on top, it gave extra spiciness and aroma to the ribs, yum yum !

Chinese Spareribs with shallots 紅葱烤排
(recipe source: reference made to cookbook titled 60 Chinese home cooked dishes, by Sonia aka Nasi Lemak Lover)

sr1 copy
900g prime pork spareribs
1/3cup light soy sauce
1tbsp Chinese cooking rice wine

2pcs star anise
10-15 shallots (depend on the size), removed skin and lightly crushed
3 slices ginger
2 cup water
3tbsp cooking oil
1/2tsp salt or to taste
1tsp dark soy sauce or dark caramel soy sauce
1/2tbsp rock sugar or to taste

Some chopped shallots for garnishing

Method

  1. Wash and clean pork spareribs, pat dry with kitchen towels. Marinate with light soy sauce and cooking wine for several hours in the fridge.
  2. Heat oil in a heavy bottom pot, add in shallots and sauté till brown and aroma. Add in pork spareribs, lightly fry till both sides turned golden brown.
  3. Add water, light soy sauce (from marinated sauce), dark soy sauce, ginger and star anise into the pot, boil over high heat. Once boiled, reduce to low heat, continue to braise for about 1hr ( check from time to time and stir the ribs ).
  4. Once the meat is fork tendered, add in the rock sugar and adjust the taste by adding salt or more rock sugar.
  5. Turn on to high heat to thicken the sauce if any, otherwise dish out and garnish with chopped shallots, serve with rice, sandwich or noodles.
