🇵🇭BRAISED PORK RIBS

That was hubby’s lunch, braised pork ribs. The meat is allowed to absorb the flavors during braising. Inspired by the classic teriyaki dish.  Just cut the pork spare ribs, brown them in hot vegetable oil, add finely chopped onions, garlic, and ginger, season with salt, pepper, soy sauce, hot chilli sauce or sambal oelek if you prefer, sweet and sour chille sauce, a little bit vinegar, ginger powder and brown sugar, pour in about two cups of water, bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for an hour and a half., until meat is tender. Serve with hot rice! GUTEN APPETIT!
If that’s not easy, I don’t know what is. 🙂

There are several varities of eggplant. The most common in the Philippines is about 8 to 12 inches long and 2 to 3 inches in diameter. You can always cut the eggplants differently according to your preferences. Note that the size affects the length of cooking time.

2.) The eggplants to the skillet or wok, sugar, soy sauce, chilli sauce oyster sauce, water and toss to coat each piece with sauce.

My BRAISED SEA BREAM or DORADO

Braising is a cooking technique in which the main ingredient is seared, or browned in fat, and then simmered in liquid on low heat in a covered pot. My family loves very much this techniqeu of cooking, because of the sauce. So, basically, you put some sauce in the pan, you add the herbs, spices and aromatics, you add the fish, chicken or meat, you cover the pan and leave everything to simmer.
It’s so simple, one wonders why not many people take advantage of the braising method of cooking.

YOU NEED…….

* 1 whole fleshy fish
( I used Sea bream or Meerbrasse)
* 4 slices of ginger
* 1 tsp. koriander powder
* 3 tbsps. of fish sauce (patis)
* 3 tbsps. vinegar
* 3 tbsps. honey
* 1 pc. spring onion, cut into rings
* 2 tbsps. oyster sauce
* some water

HOW TO…….

*** 1. ) In a pot, put all together the ingredients and fish except onion rings and cover. Simmer until fish is done, garnish with spring onion and serve hot…….ENJOY!
