Braised Pork Rib & Taro in Claypot

It may not look nice in the photo, but this dish is absolutely delicious! This dish has been in my must-try list for quite some time. During weekdays when I need to rush to work before 10am, meal must be cooked in 45 mins after sending Jeriel to school. Due to the slow braising process, I had to cancel the plan of cooking this dish several times. I am on leave today so had a little extra time to execute the plan. Do try this out, highly recommended.

Braised Pork Rib & Taro in Claypot
Serves 4

500g pork ribs, chopped into 3 cm lengths
200g taro, cut into rectangular pieces
5 dried mushrooms, soaked till soft and cut into halves
2 stalks spring onions, cut into 5 cm lengths
3-4 tbsp oil for frying

1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp cornstarch

3 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp Shao Xing cooking rice wine Dash of pepper

  1. Marinade pork ribs with marinade ingredients.
  2. Heat oil in claypot. Fry spring onions until fragrant.
  3. Add ribs and fry for approx. 1 min. Add wine and continue to fry.
  4. Add taro and mushrooms. Fry till ribs are half cooked.
  5. Add water enough to cover the content. Seasoning with seasoning, cover and cook on low heat for approx. 30 minutes or until ribs are tender and taro has turned mashy.
  6. Serve hot with chopped spring onions and coriander sprinkled on top.

At first I thought you added tau chew (yellow bean paste) into the seasoning but no...just soy sauce and chinese wine. Interesting! Might just give it a try but I hardly ever buy pork ribs, I'm scare of chopping it!

I love this dish too. So far only have it in restaurants. Will try this now that I have the recipe, but can only do it on weekend since like you weekday I only have 30-45mins to prepare dinner.

I think it could be because of the color, due to the photo editing actually, hehe....We are fortunate that the butcher helps us to chop, so I have pork ribs once in a month.

Give it a try, you will like it.
