Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Add oil, ginger and pork rib tips, in that order, to the hot pan. Stir-fry ribs until the surface of the ribs turns golden on all sides, about 5 minutes.

  • Pour enough boiling water on top of the ribs so the ribs are just covered with water. Cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes. Remove lid and keep cooking until the water is almost absorbed, 5 to 20 minutes more. Be careful not to burn the ribs. Add rock sugar, vinegar, and soy sauce. Stir until well combined and cook until sauce thickens, 1 to 2 minutes.

The sauce was not what I'd expected but I couldn't get the rock sugar so had to use regular table sugar. Will do it again with all the correct ingredients Read More

This did not work for me. The pork turned out very tough. I even bought the rock sugar online to make it. Nothing like the picture and I followed the directions. Read More

Picture looks great. Finished product doesn't even come close to looking like that. Not bad tasting but was looking for that glaze. Wrong picture or am I just not doing something right? Read More
