In order to cook it, you need to tie a cheese cloth or clean handkerchief tightly stretched over the top of a pan of water. The pan is…

Slow Cooked Pork Ribs & Pineapple (Mu Op Sapparod-หมูอบสัปรด)

The pineapple does more than flavour this dish, the acidity of the pineapple softens the ribs as they cook, so the meat practically falls off the bone. Mirin sake is a brand of japanese spirit, if you can’t get hold of it, use white wine. Ingregdients   300 gms Pineapple 500 gms Pork Ribs 3 Tablespoons Oil 2 Tablespoons Light Soy Sauce 2 Tablespoons Oyster Sauce 3 Tablespoons White Wine Or Mirin Sake 2 Tablespoons Sugar 2 Tablespoons Ketchup 600 ml Water  …
