Hello! It’s been a while…
I made my first Chinese food dish and had a number of requests for the recipe. There are a few steps involved with the process, but the end result will have you craving for more!
- 2 lbs pork riblets
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1/2 cup cooking or red wine
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
- 2 tsp corn starch
- 1 egg1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups of canola or vegetable oil
Dutch oven (or similar deep pot or pan)
- 2 garlic cloves chopped
- 1/2 tbsp canola or vegetable oil
- 1 tsp. minced ginger
- 2 green onion finely chopped
- 1 fresh jalapeño chopped
- 5 fresh Thai chili pepper chopped
- Kosher Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Large pan like a wok or similar
- In a large colander rinse the ribs with clean water for a few minutes to remove any dirty parts.
- Drain completely and transfer the ribs in a large bowl. Combine it with the marinating ingredients (except for the egg and coating flour) for at least 30 minutes (or overnight).
- Before cooking, crack an egg and mix it in with the ribs.
- Coat the ribs with all-purpose flour around 10 to 15 minutes before frying.
- In a large deep pan or Dutch oven (preferred) heat the oil until it is sizzling and bubbly. In small batches place the ribs in and fry them for about 6 to 8 minutes on each side, covering in between turns. Cook thoroughly until they are medium brown. Strain to remove any extra oil. Set aside in a bowl until all the batches are done.
- Meanwhile, prepare a large pan or wok (preferred) with a tablespoon of oil and fry the garlic, ginger, green onion, and fresh peppers until aromatic.
- Place cooked ribs in and toss along with the aromatic mixture.
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
