Coffee Pork Ribs


Coffee in the savoury meat.  I fell in love with it when I first tasted.  Each time I eat in the restaurant or zi char stall, this is one of the dish that I will order.  After seeing my friend, Cecilia Yap cooked this for dinner, it inspired me to cook too.
It’s a fairly simple dish to cook.  Not difficult at all.  But the tricky part for me is the deep frying.  I really hate cleaning up the oil splatters.  Well, this dish made all the effort worth.  The ribs were absolutely delicious and addictive.  It was a good try!

500g pork ribs
oil for deep-frying

½ tsp salt
½ tsp sugar
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 tbsp rice flour
2 tbsp potato starch
3 tbsp water

2 packets instant coffee
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp rice wine
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
3 tbsp water
