Chinese Recipe : Deep Fried Pork Spareribs with Tomato Sauce
This is a Southern Chinese recipe
2 lb pork sparerib or country style spareribs
Oil for deep frying
3 tbsps soy sauce
2 tbsps dry sherry
1 tbsp ginger juice
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 ½ tbsp oil
1 ½ tsp salt
2 tbsps Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup tomato ketchup
6 tbsps sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
6-8 scallion flowers (see note)
Cut the meat into strips, 1 inch wide and 2 inches long. Put into a saucepan, cover with boiling water and boil until the meat changes color. Drain well.
Mix together the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl. Add the spareribs and leave for 30 minutes. Drain, reserving the marinade.
Heat the oil to 180°C/350°F. Deep fry the spareribs until golden brown. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper, arrange on a serving plate and keep warm.
To make the sauce, place the ingredients, with the reserved marinade, in a saucepan. Bring to the boil and simmer, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens. Pour over the spareribs and serve hot, garnished with scallion flowers.
Note: To prepare the garnish, shred the scallion tops to within ½ inch of the base. Leave in a bowl of iced water until open, then drain.
