Pork Ribs King

20 min



Happy holidays guys, and do we have a new dish for you!
When a dish is called Pork Ribs KING (排骨王), it had better be good! In our case it was definitely worthy of that title. Also referred to as Kyoto Pork Ribs (京都排骨), this dish surprisingly has no direct relationship to Japanese culture. For our version here, we decided to use the cut of pork ribs instead of the usual pork chop that most recipes have used.
As with Coffee Ribs, we ended up with a flavour BOMB, which is porky and crispy on the outside, yet so juicy on the inside. What’s different this time is that the ketchup plum sauce and rice vinegar provided the much needed acidity to cut through the sweet tasting sauce. Get ready an extra bowl of rice to go with this!
Credits: We took reference from ieatishootipost’s Pork Rib King (排骨王) recipe and made some adjustments in his marinade and sauce.
