I zmailed this chef to ask about the hammering of the ribs. I never received an answer and so made the recipe with out that direction. Also the directions called for 1 T of the cornflour to be used in the second step and called it "half" of the cornflour. The ingredients call for 3 T of cornflour, so half would have been 1 1/2 T. I made the correct measures and the recipe worked fine. The taste was good and I'll probably make them again but I do prefer my ribs without a coating.

  1. Beat the spareribs with a meat hammer.
  2. Marinate the meat in a mixture of the Salt, whisked egg, half of the cornflour required(1tbsp). Keep aside at room temperature for 30-40 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in frypan and add the marinated succulent meat and deep fry.
  4. Drain excess oil with absorbent paper and keep aside to cool.
  5. Prepare the sauce by mixing the sauces and honey.
  6. Heat some more oil in a wok. Slowly add the sweet honey sauce and let it simmer for a little while. Then add the spare ribs and combine together well.
  7. Add the remaining 1 tbsp of cornflour to the ribs as it will act as a thickening agent.
  8. Serve hot, garnished with some green coriander, with any Chinese main meal accompaniments and rice or warm noodles.
