Pork Spareribs With Tausi
I have forgotten exactly how that dish tasted but on this post I have recreated it for the reason that I really like pork spareribs with tausi and here is the recipe.
1 k. pork spareribs, cut into serving pieces
1 small can tausi, drained and rinsed
1 medium size carrot, coarsely sliced
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 thumb size ginger, grated
1/2 head garlic, minced
1/4 c. tomato sauce
1/2 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 pc. star anise
In a frying pan fry pork spareribs in batches until color changes to golden brown and start to sizzle. In a sauce pan, put the fried pork spareribs and add enough water to cover the meat. Add in garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sugar, tomato sauce and star anise. Bring to a boil and simmer in low heat for 1-2 hours or until meat is tender. Remove all scum that rises to the surface. Watch the liquid level and add water if necessary. Add in 1/2 can of the tausi halfway and when pork is tender ready and liquid is just below the meat, add in the other half can of the tausi, 1/2 tsp. chili powder, season with salt and sugar to taste. Add in carrots and simmer for another 1-2 minutes. Thicken sauce with cornstarch diluted in 1/2 cup of water. Now add in bell pepper and cook for another minute or so. Serve hot with rice.
