Chinese BBQ Pork Belly Ribs
These are the most popular dish I have ever served on any menu. They take some time to make, but this is what slow cookers are for.
When done right they will be crispy and melt in the mouth delicious on the inside.
I served mine with fried rice.
- To make this simple cook the rice as per the instructions on the packet, then, when cooked, wash under a cold tap by placing in a sieve or colander.
- Heat a little oil on a wok or deep pan, then add some chopped peppers, chilli, spring onion and chopped garlic, cook for about 1 minute then add the rice, stir well, add a pinch of salt.
- Beat an egg in a cup then add to pan with the rice, try add it to a part of the pan or wok free of rice then immediately stir into the rice. Heat for a further minute or so then remove from the heat and taste. Serve if happy.
The recipe asks for quite a few ingredients which are always cheaper if you can get them in an Asian store.
Most supermarkets will charge €3+ for a small bottle (about 250ml) of sweet chili sauce whereas 1ltr costs around €3 in an Asian store. The same goes for most ingredients.
You will need.. 1 Large Slow Cooker, 1 raw meat chopping board, 1 vegetable chopping board, 2 sharp knifes, 1 stick blender or whisk, 1 oven or deep fat fryer, 2 pots and 1 sieve.
