In this video I am going to share with you a Pineapple Meaty Pork Ribs recipe that is quite popular in Asia. The soft and tender ribs with rich, savory taste and with the addition of pineapple gives the dish a sweet and tangy flavor. Using the simplest ingredients, this recipe makes a great meal for the whole family.
Several notes here to share with you:
Here is a quick rundown of the recipe:
Mix ribs with marinade and marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
Cut the pineapple into halves. On each half, cut around the inside perimeter using a sharp knife. Cut about 1cm in from the peel and cut the core in the center. Use a spoon (preferably a spoon that has a thin/sharp edge) to carefully remove the flesh. The pineapple should now resemble a “boat” after its internal flesh is removed. Save this empty pineapple “boat” for serving later. The tough core that is part of the pineapple flesh should be removed and the flesh cut into bite size (cubes).
Remove the marinated ribs from the refrigerator and let it rest for 30 minutes to bring to room temperature.
Heat up the cooking oil in MEDIUM heat. Dip a wooden chopstick into oil. You will know that the oil is hot when the oil bubbles steadily and this is the right time for deep frying. Deep fry the marinated ribs until golden and cooked through. Use a strainer to lift the cooked ribs.
Once the frying oil is removed, pour the sauce mixture into the same pan. Stir on HIGH heat until the sauce is slightly thickened. Returned the pork ribs into the pan. Add in the prepared pineapple cubes and stir-fry to mixed well. Dish up into the pineapple boat, garnish with spring onions and serve warm.
Happy cooking 😉🧡
