A DELICIOUS PORK SPARE RIBS RECIPE
There’s just something so satisfying about digging into a savory pork and rice recipe. Well, this Chinese influenced spare ribs recipe has a garlicky intensity that is bolstered by the deep saltiness of fermented black soybeans.
And that’s not all from a flavor perspective.
You see, the spare ribs are bathed in a marinade consisting of savory soy sauce, nutty sesame oil and the vinegary tartness of shaoxing wine (Btw… if you have a tough time finding shaoxing wine, it’s ok to use dry sherry).
The result is a flavor forward pork and rice bowl that is super easy to make, but doesn’t cut any corners in the flavor department.
HOW TO COOK SPARE RIBS IN A RICE COOKER
By now it’s no secret that we love a good rice bowl. And whether it’s this Japanese gyudon recipe – or this Vietnamese beef bowl, your Tiger rice cooker is equipped to make all elements of a yummy rice bowl with a single press of the Start button.
And that’s due in large part to Tiger’s tacook cooking plate.
Because when you use the Synchro-Cooking setting, the vapor created by steaming your rice in the inner pot cooks your meat and vegetables in the cooking plate above.
Therefore, to make this delicious garlic spare ribs recipe just place your sliced pork, garlic, fermented black soybeans and sauce in your multicooker’s tacook tray and cook at the same time as your rice.
You get the advantage of feasting on a full flavor dinner while feeling like you skipped a few cooking steps along the way.
And since you used your multi-functional rice cooker to make dinner, whoever gets stuck on cleanup duty will feel like they got a free pass, ha!
But the best part: dinner will taste soooo good 🍲😋
