Pork Ribs in Capital Sauce

I wanted to share with you this recipe, as my partner Liam made this for me and I absolutely love it ! 
Its perfect for the family and large dinner parties.


Wash the ribs
Cut the ribs into strips and then cut them again in half so they are 2 to 3 inches long.

Put the ribs into a bowl and add the following,
        A pinch of salt and pepper,
        Finely chopped one garlic clove  and one chilli,
        One tablespoon of Chinese 5 spice,
        A small drop of sesame oil, too much will over power the food so be careful.
        Finally add a whisked egg into the mix.

Mix it all up using your hands to coat the mixtures onto the ribs if you are pre making this then you can leave it in the fridge for 12 hours to really flavour the pork.


Heat up a wok with vegetable oil, fill the wok half way up.
Add a generous amount of potato starch to the ribs and mix so they are really coated.
Once the oil in the wok is heated up add the ribs. You will know if it is hot enough because as soon as the ribs are put in the oil will bubble aggressively.

Occasionally turn over the ribs whilst cooking, you want to cook the ribs for about 5 mins or until golden brown.
Place the ribs onto a paper towel to soak up an excess oil.
Now start to cook the rice and prepare any veg or garnish.
Cook the ribs again for another 5 minutes do exactly as you did before.
once the ribs have been cooked remove from the wok and discard an of the oil left, give the wok a quick clean as we now need to make the capital sauce.

Re heat the wok add half a bottle of bbq sauce, 2 teaspoons of tomato sauce and 2 teaspoons of water. You want the sauce to be thick and not too runny otherwise it won't coat the ribs.
Lastly add 4 tablespoons of sugar.

Now add the ribs into the sauce, mix them up and cook till sauce is hot.
Add the garnish and rice to the plate, we have used onions and spinach in this picture.
Then place the ribs on top and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.

And there you have it, Capital Pork Ribs. I hope you enjoyed this post please let me know if this is something you'd like to see more of.
