Braised pork ribs in hoisin sauce

Seasoning for marinating pork ribs:

  1. Wash the pork ribs clean and remove any visible fats.

  3. Heat oil in a wok and fry garlic till fragrant.
  4. Add the pork ribs and fry for awhile till the surface of the pork is slightly browned.
  5. Add water (enough to cover the pork ribs) and bring the water to a boil.
  6. Turn down the heat and simmer for 45min or until pork ribs are cooked.
  7. Thicken the gravy with cornflour solution.
  8. Serve hot.
