excellent texture & taste. pumpkin puree wonderful too. 🙂

it was exactly what i expected. i had this a year before in aug2015 & was eyeing this dish to order.

i called my own concoction mock kurobuta becos i am using ordinary 500g prime ribs, the frozen ribs from sheng shiong.

& though i used frozen prime ribs, i think flavour & texture wise almost approximate the kurobuta ribs at foc, so it was in fact very good ribs. 🙂

in order to create the tender yet firm not old texture, i fine braised (slow low temperature braising) the ribs in a 95degC oven for 5hrs.

this turns collagen (tough connective tissues) to gelatine & flavours the meat, also it dissolves the fat & flavours the meat.

key considerations in any cooking are texture & taste.

i made an excellent fine braised pork ribs (best using spare ribs or pork soft bones).

this though was western flavour, so i needed to experiment a new marinade.

  1. for marinade, i added 2 tbsp red wine, 1 tbsp yuzu jelly, 2 tbsp light soy sauce, 1 tbsp mustard, 2 tsp chopped garlic, 2 stalks chopped scallions.
  2. then i stir-fried 2 star anise, 2 bay leaves in a wok. then i added 1/2 sliced onions & caramelise, & added the marinade. then added coriander & off fire.
  3. then pan-charred/browned the ribs in some butter
  4. & placed in sealed oven dish i 95degC oven for 5hrs.

the flavour & colour were quite excellent straight from the oven.

but i wanted to char it a bit further. the blackened part were the marinade. while that did not affect the dish much it did not look as nice. so for next round if i decide to char it more i would wipe clean & dry the marinade.
