DIRECTIONS

  • Boil about 1 L of water in a pot, or enough to cover the ribs.
  • Carefully drop the ribs in the boiling water, stir til outside browns, roughly 1 minute (this is to clean out the blood in the ribs so your sauce won't have the 'foamy stuff' later).
  • Drain ribs, put in a medium sized pot big enough for the ribs to be layed down in one layer. A deeper pan will work too.
  • Add rice wine, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce and water in the pot (you don't need to follow the measurements, I usually take a ladle and use 1 ladle of rice wine, 2 vinegar 3 sugar etc).
  • Bring to a boil for about 10 minutes then reduce to a simmer.
  • Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is very dark and almost dry or to your desired thickness, roughly half an hour.
  • Be careful not to dry all the sauce out, the sauce will reduce much quicker in the final stage, so keep an eye on it.
  • Serve with steamed rice and stir fried veggies for a great Chinese meal!
