Literally meaning sugar and vinegar, this is a dish with classic Chinese origins. Zhe Jiang vinegar is made from fermented glutinous rice. It is dark in colour and and has a rich and smoky flavour. These flavours are then imparted to the pork ribs during the cooking process. Sugar makes the sauce rich and sticky, allowing it to coat itself on the spare ribs. Giving this dish the perfect SWEET and SOUR balance!
Another one of those dishes you can whip up in practically no time at all and still tastes really good!
