Red Cooked Ribs

Another great recipe donated to us from Phos over at V Agent for Breakfast! Thanks Phos ... looks positively yummy!

"This is a braised dish I like to cook for the Lunar New Year’s celebration (Chinese New Year). It is a braised dish using a strong soy sauce as a liquid. I am getting ready to celebrate and like to test some dishes before I cook them for my guests. I have attached a recipe for Red Cooked Ribs that I made tonight. It has been Husky tested and approved - and Mrs. Phos liked them too!"


Heavy pan with tight fitting lid


5 “Country style” ribs (actually thickly sliced Pork Butt)
½ cup (4 oz.) Strong Soy sauce (Kikkoman’s works well)
1 tsp (US measure) Minced garlic
1 tsp (US measure) Minced ginger
4 Star Anise (optional)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Pour ½ cup soy sauce in bottom of heavy pan, add ginger and garlic, Star Anise (if desired). Stir to combine. Add ribs. Lid the pan and place in oven for 2 hours.

This low and slow method uses the juices from the meat combined with the flavorful liquid to cook and permeate the meat making it tender and delicious.
