Sweet and sour rib(s)

Sweet and sour ribs

I have a recipe for sweet and sour sauce that calls for ketchup, this recipe caught my eye , while reading the likes from some of my blog postings as I have (now had) the ingredients.

You can always vary the sugar to vinegar ratio to suit your taste.

A recipe mod from
Thanks for the idea !

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce

20130805-210106.jpgI would also add some heat at this point, red pepper flakes etc.

Other ingredients:

2 cloves garlic
1 country style rib , bone in
Snap peas

While the rib defrosted in the microwave, the ingredients for the sauce was combined and simmered in a saucepan.


In a skillet, one cup of rice was added to 2 cups of water , a bit of salt and olive oil. Boil, then simmer and cover till the rice is done.



The defrosted rib was cut into pieces, keeping one piece with the bone.

Salt and pepper, placed on a small broiler pan and broiled , for me broiling was faster than browning in a pan.

Broil both sides till some crispness is apparent. Add olive oil if necessary


Add the crisp rib pieces to the bubbling sauce , cover and simmer for about 15 minutes. Throw in some smashed cloves of garlic.


20130805-211516.jpgUncover the rice when completed and remove from heat to dry any remaining water while the ribs and sauce simmer.

Microwave some snap peas.


Arrange a bed of rice for the rib pieces, cornstarch and cold water will thicken the sauce.

20130805-211935.jpg Pour the thickened sauce over the rib pieces and side with the green snap peas. I’m fresh out of sesame seeds! Pineapple here would be a good addition or other fruit.



E N J O Y ! Thanks for visiting …….
