I could almost drink the gravy like soup and drenched my rice with it, of which something I rarely do except with curry.
I was "captured" by this recipe because of the use of bayleaf in a Chinese pork stew.
Bayleaf ??? Oh yes, and it really does give the good old bean paste ribs a new twist. Doesn't taste like the usual one that every mom cooks.
I did some modifications to the method bcause the original source didn't saute the aromatics, something that I will prefer doing. And I didn't parboil the ribs. Since there were no amount of ingredients given in the source, I eyeballed it by looking at the pictures. I've cooked this twice and both times using the same amount of ingredients, came out the same way, not much different.
The gravy is meant to be soup like (like how it is in the source), so I hope you will not thicken it. Drench it with your rice.. it's delicious.
Or even noodles :)
Oh yes... I'm taking a short break
It's mid semester break for my girls and I'll be enjoying the break with them.
Longer sleep in the morning, LOL.
Happy Holidays to all Malaysian Parents
