SpareRibs with Sesame Seeds Recipe

Spareribs with Sesame Seeds Recipe

Ingredients :

1 kg pork spareribs

2 tablespoon white sesame seeds

2 tablespoons cooking oil

2 scallions, chopped finely

4 cm fresh ginger, grated

4 cloves garlic, chopped finely

2 tablespoons caster sugar

2 tablespoons sake

1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 teaspoons sesame oil

1 1/2 cups hot water

2 teaspoons cornflour


Method :

Cut the spareribs into 3 cm pieces and trim of excess fat, and set aside. Heat up a dry pan and toast the sesame seeds over moderate heat for 3-4 minutes, shaking the pan gently until the color turns golden. Remove immediate from the pan to prevent burning. Use a mortar and pestle to crush the toasted sesame seeds. Heat a heavy-based frying pan with oil and brown the spareribs over high heat. Turn regularly and cook until the meat turned dark golden brown. Drain any excess oil from the pan. Add half the toasted and crushed sesame seeds, scallions, ginger, sugar, garlic, sake, soy sauce, sesame oil and water. Stir well to coate the ribs evenly. Bring to the boil over moderate heat, then cover with a lid and simmer for about an hour, stirring occasionally. Use a small bowl to combine the cornflour with a little cold water until they became a smooth paste. Add to the pan, stirring constantly until the mixture boils and thickens. Sprinkle in the remaining sesame seeds. Serve hot with steamed white rice.
