Garlicky Ribs

Jesse LOVES Chinese ribs, especially the ones at South Beauty on Yan’an lu, Di Shui Dong and at home. Here’s a recipe inspired by my childhood Taiwanese flavors – salty, savory fried garlic, cilantro, chillies, star anise and white pepper. It looks like a lot of garlic, but after they’re deep fried, they become sweet and nutty, not as garlicky as you think 8 cloves may be.

Instructions

  1. 1Cut the rack into individual ribs. Marinade the ribs in mushroom soy and rice wine for 30 minutes.
  2. 2You can either cook the ribs in a pressure cooker for 35 minutes or steam them for 1 hour then let cool.
  3. 3In a deep pot, heat canola oil and fry the garlic until fragrant and golden brown. Strain the garlic and set aside.
  4. 4In a large mixing bowl, evenly coat the ribs in flour and shake off excess. Deep fry the ribs in batches, in the oil you fried the garlic with until crispy and golden brown. Drain ribs on a paper towel lined plate.
  5. 5In a large frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon garlic oil, add chopped onions, star anise, chillies and stir fry until fragrant. Add the ribs, fried garlic, chicken powder, sugar, salt and white pepper, shake the pan vigorously to coat the ribs with spices, about 2 minutes. Mix in the cilantro at the end and serve immediately.
