Sticky Pork Ribs
The easiest Chinese-style takeaway that you can make in your own home. It's cheaper and tastier too.
8 large pork ribs, separated
2 tbsp groundnut oil
1 tbsp Mirin rice wine (available in any superstore or Chinese supermarket)
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
3 tbsp honey
4 tbsp soy sauce
5 tbsp water
6 cloves garlic, peeled
1 - Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan. Add the pork ribs and cook for a few minutes on each side until golden brown.
2 - Quickly add the rest of the ingredients, stirring thoroughly (remove the ribs first if you are struggling for room but it all sorts itself out, honest).
3 - Place a lid (or foil if no lid) on the pan and simmer for 1 hour (keep checking it to check it isn't drying out. If so, add a little more water).
4 - Remove and serve with sticky jasmine rice, optional simple stir-fried vegetables and a sprinkling of fresh coriander and sesame seeds.
