Braised Pork Ribs with Beancurd Strips


Braised pork ribs with tofu puff

Another easy peasy favourite is this braised pork ribs and beancurd strips.

Rather similar to Braised Pork Ribs With Deep Fried Beancurd Sheet but substituted beancurd sheets with strips instead. Just need to chop garlic, preserved soy bean and preserved black bean together. Sear pork ribs till lightly browned and remove from pan.

Fry the chopped ingredients till very fragrant before adding the ribs. Stir till all the ribs are coated before putting in the beancurd strips. Pour in just enough water to cover the ingredients.

Bring to a boil and season with a bit of salt if needed and some sugar to balance out the saltiness of the fermented beans. Lower the heat, cover and simmer for about 45 minutes (time given by butcher for braising the ribs she gave me) until tender and gravy thickened.

I could have also done this in a slow cooker by dropping the fried ribs and beancurd strips into the pot and cook for 3 hours WITHOUT adding any water. Yes, no water needed as there would be liquid seeping out from the meat and beancurd.
