Spicy Pan Fried Pork Ribs with Peppers

This week I spent some time exploring the downtown of Toronto. This is definitely a city for foodies!!! There are so many local markets with a variety types of groceries, including one of my favorites, short pork ribs. They are perfect for this crispy and spicy dish. This dish is supposed to serve two, but I ended up finishing the whole dish in one meal…plus an extra yogurt. So choose your peppers wisely 😉

双椒煎排骨

Ingredients:

* Short Pork Ribs 0.5 kg

* 5 green peppers (I used Dominican peppers, which are unexpectedly spicy for me!)

* 5 dried red peppers

* 1 green onion

* 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp sugar, 4 tbsp cornstarch

* 1 tbsp cooking wine, 1 tbsp soy sauce. 3 tbsp cooking oil

Steps:

1. Blanch the ribs for 10 minutes (A few friends told me that this is not enough, so double it if you prefer a tender bite).  In the meantime, rinse the peppers. Cut the green ones in half and get rid of the seeds.

2. Marinate the blanched ribs with sugar, cooking wine, soy sauce and corn starch for 5 minutes. Get a pan and add the cooking oil. Let’s fry the ribs with low heat until both sides turn golden.

3. Get the ribs out. Use the oil left in the pan to fry our peppers until the green ones get their tattoos done.

4. Ribs back in. Add salt and chopped green onions. Gently stir for about 2 minutes. Done! Get your cold drinks ready!

    Oh man, this looks good.
    Why is it that you always make food that I don’t know I’m craving till you post it?
    So good!

    Love pork short ribs. The marinade you used sounds simple, yet flavorful and it sounds as if the peppers you used packed quite a punch! That first bite must have been a little surprising. 😉 The finished dish looks absolutely delicious! So glad you brought them to share at Fiesta Friday, thank you!

      Thank you Nancy! I wrapped a pepper with the ribs for the first bite. It was more than a little surprising 😉

    Welcome to Fiesta Friday and to the party. Thanks for bringing this dish, there are some great flavors going on. I don’t believe I’ve ever tried Dominican peppers? They look very much like jalapeno peppers. I like the tartness and sweetness in the dish, I’m sure it was delicious. Enjoy your weekend.

      Thank you Loretta! I may not remember the type of the peppers correctly since they are right beside each other on the shelf but I guess both would serve the purpose. Happy FF!

    This looks so nice! The ribs have a beautiful crispy outside and I love the sound of the chilli heat with the peppers! 🙂

      Thank you Petra! Chili heat and sizzling ribs are one of the best combinations 🙂

    I love Toronto. The St. Lawrence Market is where it’s at. You can also go to Kensington Market in Toronto to find some great places!
