Five Spice Spare Ribs

Yum! Maybe I will make these for July 4th, lol!

Five Spice Spare Ribs

700 gm pork spareribs
570 ml peanut oil

1 tbl dry sherry or rice wine
1 tbl light soy sauce
1 tbl cider vinegar or Chinese white rice vinegar
1/2 tsp sesame oil

1 tbl garlic finely chopped
1 tbl five spice powder
1 1/2 tbl spring onions finely chopped1
1 tbl sugar
1 tbl light soy sauce
2 tsp fresh orange peel finely chopped
70 ml cider vinegar or Chinese black rice vinegar

  • Have your butcher cut the spareribs into individual ribs and then into chunks which are approximately 7.5cm long.
  • Alternatively do this yourself using a heavy sharp cleaver which can cut through the bones.
  • Mix the marinade ingredients together in a bowl and steep the spareribs in the marinade for about 25 minutes at room temperature.
  • Heat the oil in a deep fat fryer or large wok.
  • Slowly brown the marinaded spareribs in several batches until they are brown.
  • Drain each cooked batch on kitchen paper. (Leave the cooking oil to cool. Strain it through a filter once it has cooled if you want to keep it for re use when cooking pork.)
  • Put the sauce ingredients into a clean wok or frying pan.
  • Bring the sauce to the boil and then reduce the heat.
  • Add the spareribs and simmer them slowly uncovered for about 40 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Add a little water to the sauce if necessary to prevent it from drying up.
  • Skim off any surface fat and serve.

    Can be easily re heated and the taste improves if it is cooked the day before it is eaten.
