This Blog is actually several separate blogs. This, the Main Blog, is for my ramblings about everything else that other blogs do not cover. Things like my pottery, my wife’s art work (mainly watercolor), travel, nature observations, book reviews and whatever else comes to mind. Feel free to leave comments about any of the posts.

What a pleasure to have a plate full of fall-off-the-bone, sweet and sticky baby back pork ribs in front of you. Quite messy to eat but is it ever good! I tried few recipes and eventually came up with my own version. Of course, you can make them as spicy as you want with addition of Sriracha sauce.
1 rack baby back ribs, cut in half
2 T. Peanut oil
1/4 cup Hoisin sauce
1/4 cup Oyster sauce
1/4cup Plum sauce
1/2 cup Soy sauce
1 cup Sake
1/4 t. red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T. fresh ginger, peeled & minced
2 T. honey
Have butcher to cut the rack in half. Remove the membrane covering ribs.
Cut the rack of ribs into separate ribs.
Put ribs and all ingredients in a prep bowl and rub the marinade in. Marinade for 4 hours.
Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a non-stick frying pan. Add the ribs & brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove from frying pan and drain excess oil and put ribs into Chinese sand pot or heavy bottom pot.
Add the sake and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to very slow simmer and simmer for 2 hours, stirring from time to time.Remove lid & let boil gently until the sauce is thickened & coating the ribs, 15 - 20 minutes.
