Crispy Pork Ribs is a family staple dish during special occasions. This is one of the first dishes to be finished during parties, because of the sweet crispy taste. Everyone just keeps coming back for it! I haven't had this dish for many years, but the other night my mum cooked it again. She was asking me and my hubby what we wanted for dinner, and my hubby just said "Surprise us!", with a big smile on his face. My mum remembered her old recipe and cooked it. It was the first time my hubby ever tried it, and he could not stop saying, "Yummmm, this is so good! The best ribs ever!" My mum felt so pleased her favorite son-in-law loved her cooking so much.
- 1 kg pork ribs
- 5 cloves garlic crushed
- 2 ½ cups water
- 1 ½ tbsp soy sauce
- ¾ cup vinegar
- 1/3 cup sugar
- ½ tbsp salt
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- 2 pcs plain crackers I used skyflakes
- 2 egg2
- 1 tbsp cooking oil
Place sliced pork ribs in the pot with the crushed garlic underneath.
In a separate bowl, mix the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, salt, and black pepper.
Add the water and the soy sauce mixture to the pork ribs, and boil for 40 minutes until pork is soft and sauce is a bit thick. Add the oil and cook for another 5 minutes.
Place the pork ribs in a separate container, then prepare your coating. Scramble the eggs then crush the crackers.
While heating up the oil, coat each rib with egg
Then with the crushed crackers.
When oil is hot, (make sure it’s not too hot as this will quickly burn the coating) deep fry each rib for only 30 seconds.
Serve and enjoy!
