Coffee Spare Ribs

Cooked this Coffee Spare Ribs for dinner. Recipe is from Jingle's Blog. If you ask me about the verdict for this dish, hmmm... how should I put it? Okay, lets be frank. Hubby and I shared the same view. We are used to drinking coffee and eating coffee desserts. As for having a meat dish with coffee, it doesn't suit our palate.

Gene and Ni on the other hand, enjoyed this dish very much. They even mixed lots of gravy into their rice. Well, I know that coffee is just like opium to this two naughty fellas, something on which they got hooked few years back, when they acquired their "coffee drinking licences" from Tazz. *lol* Oh my god, Tazz was requested to cook this regularly.

Coffee Spare Ribs

400g spare ribs (small spare ribs)

1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp 3-in-1 instant white coffee powder
3 tbsp water

5 tbsp 3-in-1 instant white coffee powder
2 tbsp tomato sauce
5 tbsp water


Cut the spare ribs to about 3 inches long. Marinate for about 1 hour.

Deep-fry the marinated spare ribs in hot oil over high heat for about 6 minutes or until golden brown. Drain and set aside.

Leave 2 tbsp of oil in the wok, pour in sauce mixture and bring to boil. Add in fried spare ribs, stir to coat the fried spare ribs with the sauce. Dish out, sprinkle with some coffee powder on top. Serve hot.

Tazz's Note: The spare ribs that I used were not cut into 3 inches long, butcher's fault! :(

    Okay, got to admit, I don't think I'm that experimental. Will reserve the coffee for drink and dessert only. :P

    Ching, Jingle recommended this dish after she received very good review at M4M forum. Too bad, it doesn't suit Tazz's palate.

    Mike, Tazz is the Indian Chief in the home front. No more Coffee Spare Ribs, be it white, normal or black coffee. I won't tell the two naughty fellas this bad news. *lol*
