Char Siew Mee

What to do when you've a rack of pork ribs that have been sitting in the freezer since the ice age (ok they're not that old.. REALLY!)? You marinate the little suckers! Once cooked the possibilities are endless.

I chose to accompany these ribs with some mee (egg noodles) and blanched vegetables. Though these were good enough to eat with just a bottle of beer!

1kg of pork ribs  
1 teaspoon of ground white pepper
1 teaspoon of light soy sauce 
1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce (thick soy sauce)
1 tablespoon of honey
5 tablespoon of sugar (add more, if desired)
1 teaspoon of Rice Wine
1 teaspoon of sesame oiloney
5 tablespoon of sugar (add more, if desired)
1 teaspoon of Rice Wine
1 teaspoon of sesame oil

  1. Combine well with all seasoning ingredients. Dredge pork strips with the seasoning mixture, and marinate overnight
  2. Preheat oven to 220ºC. 
  3. Line baking dish with aluminum foil, and place pork strips on it. Do not discard the marinating sauce
  4. Place baking dish in the center of preheated oven.
  5. Bake one side for 20 minutes. Turn pork ribs over and bake for another 15 min, or until caramelized. 
  6. Glaze the ribs continiously
  7. Remaining sauce reduce over heat until thick
  8. Remove roasted pork and sauce from oven. Slice when ribs are cooled
  9. In a pot of boiling water cook egg noodles for 1-2 minutes then rinse under cold running water
  10. On your plate add 1-2 teaspoons of oil (I used seasame) and soy sauce 
  11. Combine noodles with oil and soy sauce
  12. Top the noodles with 1-2 ribs and apply extra sauce on top

And volla there you go

Char Siew Mee!
