Pork Ribs with Noodle/ Rice

I planned to post the recipe a while back (I am talking about my plan yesteryear), but I forgot to take photos every time I cooked the forgetful these days.

I always love oink oink & I enjoy experimenting different recipes with mr Porkie. One of my successful experiment is this pork ribs recipe. It is simple to make and quite an impressive dish, it can be served with rice or noodle. It can be paired with coriander, cucumber, boiled egg, 5 spice hard tofu etc.

It took me about 1.5 hr to prepare and cook the dish. Recipe origin is unknow, it's like a cross between Taiwanese & Indonesian dish ... Dare to try?

For 4 people

  • 750 gr Pork Ribs (baikut)
  • 1/2 white radish - sliced into quarters
  • 3 pieces star anise
  • 3 cloves garlic - minced
  • 6 pieces cloves
  • 6 cm ginger - sliced thinly
  • 1 cup frozen Soya Beans
  • 2-3 tablespoon Yeo's Salted Soy Beans
  • 2-3 tablespoon kecap manis (Indonesian Sweet Soya Sauce)
  • 1/2-1 tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • White Pepper
  • 1.5 cup water
  • Coriander (for garnish)
  • 1 cucumber - diced (if served with noodle)
  • Heat oil in a pot, stir fry ginger and garlic for 1-2 minutes
  • Add pork ribs, stir fry for about 5 minutes or till browned up
  • Add salted soya beans and kecap manis, stir fry for 1-2 minutes
  • Add water, cover the pot and put it on high heat for 30 minutes
  • Add radish, star anise, cloves, cook for about 20 minutes on medium heat/ till water is just covering the pork ribs
  • Add soya beans, brown sugar, white pepper
  • Ready to serve
Serving options:
  • With steamed rice + garnish with coriander
  • With udon/ yang chuen noodle + add diced cucumber + garnish with coriander

  • I sometimes add boiled egg/ lotus roots/ five spiced hard tofu to jazz up the dish
