Braised Spare Ribs With Baked Beans


Braised Spare Ribs With Baked Beans

This recipe appeared in Yum Yum magazine issue 63 and seems very appealing. Kinda special since we usually have baked beans on its own or cooked with eggs or with some mince meat. Very easy to prepare and would become a firm favourite if one love baked beans.

Braised Spare Ribs With Baked Beans

1 onion, cut into pieces
2 tomatoes, cut into wedges
2 red chillies, cut into pieces (I omitted)
600g spare ribs, cut into pieces
1 tin baked beans

1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp tomato sauce
600ml water
1 tsp sugar

1. Heat oil and saute onion until aromatic. Add tomatoes, red chillies, spare ribs and stir-fry until well mixed.

2. Add (A) and bring to boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 40 mins or until rins are tender.

3. Lastly add in baked beans and bring to boil. Dish and serve with rice.

10 things you did not know about baked beans
By Karen Inge

They're a staple quick meal in many houses, but just how nutritious are they for you and your family?

  1. Baked beans contain energy giving, low glycaemic index carbohydrates.

  2. A cup of baked beans is a great source of protein with more than 10 grams of protein equal to 50 gram steak or 11/2 eggs.

  3. The fibre in a cup of baked beans is 12 grams equal to more than 8 large sandwich slices multigrain bread, or 11/4 cups toasted muesli or 4 medium unpeeled green apples.

  4. Baked Beans are international. Versions of baked beans are found in many countries from France home of the cassoulet through to the USA with Boston (Navy) Baked Beans.

  5. A cup of baked beans is about 900 kilojoules or just less than 10% daily intake energy requirement for the average person.

  6. Baked beans are low in fat (less than 1%) with less than 2 grams of fat per cup. They are super low in saturated fats and as a vegetable contain no cholesterol.

  7. Most baked beans are also an excellent source of tomato containing the antioxidant lycopene.

  8. Baked beans contain folate a vitamin essential to release the energy in our food. One cup of Baked Beans provides more than 25% of the daily requirement (RDI 400 micrograms/day adults and teenagers).

  9. We do not have digestive enzymes for all carbohydrates including raffinose found in dried beans and legumes. Gut micro-flora break down this carbohydrate and a byproduct is gas. Raffinose can be reduced in beans that are soaked first and the water discarded.

My mom used to cook it with eggs when I was little. Don't know why I haven't introduce baked beans with my girls yet. This dish certainly looks good.
