Braised Pork Ribs in Soy Sauce Introduction

Braised Pork Ribs in Soy Sauce (Simplified Chinese: 红烧排骨; Traditional Chinese: 紅燒排骨; Pinyin: Hong Shao Pai Gu;). In the cuisine of southern China, spare ribs are generally red in color and roasted with a sweet and savory sauce. In Chinese cuisine, pork spare ribs are generally first cut into 7-to-10-centimetre (3 to 4 in) sections, then may be fried, steamed, or braised. Braised Pork Ribs in Soy Sauce are also popular in Chinese and American Chinese cuisine; they are generally called hongshao paigu (Chinese: 红烧排骨; pinyin:hong shao pai gu).


This Chinese braised pork ribs dish is a classic traditional Chinese dish almost every Chinese family knows how to cook and loves. It’s a must-have for major holidays such as Spring Festival (a.k.a. Chinese New Year).[1]

Braised Pork Ribs in Soy Sauce Recipes

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then add the spareribs, and cook uncovered for 3 to 5 minutes. Drain in a colander and set aside.

Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over high heat. Stir in the ginger, green onions, and cinnamon; cook and stir until fragrant. Stir in the spareribs and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Pour in the water, soy sauce, sugar, and rice wine. Season with salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer until the spareribs are tender, about 1 hour.[2]
