Coffee Aroma Golden Ribs

  • 4 sticks pork ribs
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsps corn flour
  • 6 tbsps beer/shaoxing wine
  • 1/2 packet of 3 in 1 instant coffee mix
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
  • oil
  • some water
  • 2 cm ginger (finely chopped)

Got this recipe from a friend & I can't wait trying it out with my own way - a little of modification based on what I have in my kitchen..I have never tried out any dishes with coffee so far, thus have no idea how the original taste like. The result wasn't that bad - it's 'finger licking good'! LOL. Try out!

  1. Marinade ribs with sesame oil, beer, salt & light soy sauce for about 10 mins. Place the rib in a separate bowl & keep the marinated sauce aside.
  2. Add 1/4 packet of instant coffee mix & corn flour to the ribs & mix well. Set aside.
  3. Add the remaining instant coffee mix to the sauce just now with some water.
  4. Heat oil & fry every surface of ribs until golden brown. Dish out in a plate.
  5. Add oil & stir fry garlic together with ginger until fragrant before adding the sauce. Heat to boil.
  6. Finally, pour the sauce on top of fried ribs.
