Steamed Pork Ribs in Plum Sauce

~ Posted on Friday, February 8, 2013 at 7:19 AM ~

I had earlier confessed that one of my 2013 resolutions (I rarely made them in my life so when I made it for this year, I'm trying to stick by it!) is to learn to cook for the family. For this post, I am sharing my first ever pork dish, recommended by hubby for me to try out.

Please note that I have no idea where my hubby got the list of ingredients from and the amount of sauces for marinade are also not given to me as well, so I practically blind guess the amount :P


1. Pork ribs (I use about 250g)
2. Plum sauce (I use about 1.5 tbsp)
3. A small shallot (chopped until small pieces)
4. Soy sauce
5. Caramel sauce
6. Sugar
7. Sesame oil
8. Tomato sauce
9. Oyster sauce
10. Corn flour (I used about 1.5 tbsp)
(*Note: Item 4 to 9 about 1 tbsp each)

* Blanch pork ribs in boiling water for 10 seconds. Mix item 2 to 10 together.

* Marinade pork ribs with the mixed item 2 to 10 for about 1 hour.
* Place pork ribs onto a metal plate, pour some marinade sauce on top of pork ribs.
* Wrapped metal plate with aluminium tin foil.
Steam for about 45-60 minutes.


Hubby likes the dish and my almost 4 years old boy said he loved it! Oh boy, makes me float when I hear an innocent child proclaiming that hahahah! I personally feel the pork should be more tender but since hubby and my kiddos are OK with it, oh well, dish is a success!
