my mom makes quite the good braised ribs and this is her recipe. i don’t have exact portions of any of the ingredients because measuring is overrated.

wet stuff (soy sauce, rice wine, sesame seed oil, water):

aromatics (ginger, onion, garlics)

the meat (pork ribs), cut in half efficiently by the chinese butcher:

secret ingredient is rock sugar:

infuse sesame seed oil with garlics and ginger, use a large pot:

sear your ribs:

dump in liquids and chopped up onions. liquids should almost cover the meat. use good sense when measuring proportions:

bring to boil and then simmer on low heat for 2-4 hours:

hot pork fat! you can let this solidify overnight and skim the top the next day:

enjoy!
