0/5 Instructions
  • Mix the marinade ingredients together in a bowl and place the spareribs in the marinade for about 25 minutes at room temperature. Remove the spareribs from the marinade with a slotted spoon.
  • Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer or large pan. When the oil is very hot and slightly smoking, slowly brown the marinated 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 if you want to re-use it 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, cover and simmer gently for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Skim off any surface fat, turn onto a warm serving plate and serve at once. Enjoy!


If necessary, add a little water to the sauce to prevent the spareribs from drying up.
