For the upcoming Singaporean National Day, we have embarked on a recipe of Char Siew using spare ribs instead of the usual cuts. Marinated in our homemade char siew sauce for 24 hours, then slow cooked for 3 hours in the oven. The result? Finger-licking good racks of ribs. It’s tender, yet with a satisfying chew to it, such that the fattier parts melt in your mouth! Perfect for a day of gathering and celebrations!
Happy birthday Singapore, and have a great National Day everyone!
