Deep-fried Ribs in Five Spice Powder Recipe
Deep-Fried Ribs In Five Spice Powder Recipe.
10 – 12 pieces (680g) Finger ribs, with excess fat and gristle trimmed
3 tbsp Flour
- Oil for deep frying
1 clove Garlic, crushed and finely chopped
2 tbsp Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
1 tbsp Dark soy sauce
1 tbsp Light soy sauce
1 tbsp Light brown sugar
1/2 tsp Chili sauce
- Few drops of sesame oil
The Spice Mix
1 tbsp Five spice powder
2 tsp Sichuan peppercorn, grounded
Chop each ribs into three or four pieces, then mix with all the marinade ingredients and marinate for at least three hours.
Coat the ribs with flour and deep-fry in medium heat for 4 – 5 minutes, stirring to separate. Remove from oil and drain on a kitchen paper.
Here’s the trick. Turn up heat to high and deep-fry the ribs once more for 1 minute or until the color is an even dark brown. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on a kitchen paper.
To make the spicy mix, heat all the ingredients in a preheated wok for approx. 2 minutes over low heat, stirring constantly. Serve with the ribs.
