Pork with Chestnuts Recipe

Pork with Chestnuts Recipe

Ingredients :

125 g dried chestnuts

1 kg lean pork spareribs, cut into chunky pieces

1.5 teaspoon chopped garlic

2 teaspoons sugar

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons peanut oil

2 teaspoons cornstarch

500 ml hot water

 

Method :

Soak and cover the dried chestnuts in boiling water for 30 minutes. Discard water and replace with more boiling water to soak for another 30 minutes or overnight in warm water. Crush the garlic with sugar to make a smooth puree. Mix with soy sauce and use to marinate the ribs for 30 minutes or longer. Heat a wok, add oil and when hot, fry the spareribs, tossing them so they are well browned. Add hot water and drained chestnuts, cover and simmer for 1 hour or until the pork is tender. Blend cornstarch with a little cold water and stir into the liquid in the wok until sauce boils and thickens. Serve hot with white steamed rice.
