高升排骨 Spicy Braised Pork Ribs

16 Feb

This is a recipe from a Chinese New Year cooking contest website.  It is a new way to cook the traditional Chinese Braised Pork Ribs using Korean pepper paste.  The spicy sauce brings both taste and an appetizing color to the dish.


  • 1 lb of spare ribs
  • 1/2 lb of choy sum
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 slices of ginger
  • 3 tablespoons of Korean Spicy Pepper Paste
  • 2 tablespoons of Ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of white vinegar
  • 1/2 can of chicken stock


  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add spare ribs and drain the water out immediately.  Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan with oil, stir in ginger and garlic, add spare ribs.  Pan fry for 5 mins.
  3. Add pepper paste, ketchup, soy sauce, sugar, white vinegar and chicken stock.  Cover and bring it to boil.  Lower the heat and simmer for 15 min or until sauce thickens.
  4. Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil and add choy sum.  Cover for a few minutes.
  5. Place choy sum on the plate and add spare rib on top.
  6. Sprinkle sesame for garnish.

Note:   Cooking the spare rib in hot boiling water will remove the frozen taste and some fats from the spare ribs.
