READY IN: 40mins




  • Trim fat and cut spareribs into individual pieces suitable for stir-frying. Blanch spareribs with 2.5 cups of hot water to rinse away fat and blood.
  • Drain ribs, and season ribs with the soy sauce, cooking wine, chilli. Mix well.
  • Drain preserved vegetables and chop into 1" pieces, crush garlic and halve if necessary, slice and dice chillies.
  • Set aside the remaining 2.5 cups of hot water to be added into the wok during simmering.
  • Heat 2 tbs oil in a wok or saucepan on medium flame/heat. Fry garlic in oil till fragrant, then add spareribs and seasoning into wok, reducing heat if necessary to prevent splatter.
  • Continue stir frying for about a minute, spareribs should be about half-cooked, then add the preserved vegetables, and continue stir-frying, till fragrant, roughly another half a minute.
  • Add the 2.5 cups of hot water to the wok, leave it to simmer for about 20 minutes on low-med heat, and you're done!
  • You can add more soy sauce/sugar/water to taste at this point, adding more seasoning and water can turn this dish into more of a soupy nature as well, great during winter!
  • Serve with steamed rice.
