Reminiscent Of Western Stew With Asian Flavors

A stew is a combination of solid food ingredients that have been cooked in liquid and served in the resultant gravy. Ingredients in a stew can include any combination of vegetables (such as carrots, potatoes, beans, peppers and tomatoes, etc) and meat, especially tougher meats suitable for slow-cooking, allowing the flavors to mingle. “Braised Pork-Ribs Stew” is basically an adaptation of the Gwai Lo’s Stew but infused with Asian flavors. Technically, it is just Braised Pork-Ribs with very thick sauce. See if you like it. Here’s The Viand’s version of, Braised Pork-Rib Stew




  • Pork Ribs – chop to bite size. Chunky Potatoes, Carrots, Onion, Sliced Gingers, Smashed Garlic, Sliced Chillies and Shallots. Coarsely grounded White Pepper, Anise and Cinnamon stick.


  • Sugar, Salt, Oyster Sauce, Dark-soy (for coloring), White pepper and a touch of Sesame Oil and Shaoxing wine. All to taste. *** Note : Just dash of everything, if U prefer a stronger intensity of an ingredient flavor, simply add a little extra of that ingredient/spice/sauce – no rocket scientific measurement here. Always taste your Seasoning !!!



  • Step 1 : Start by sauteing the Onion, Gingers, Garlic, Anise and Cinnamon Stick till aromatic. Add the rest of the Ingredients (except sliced Chillies and Scallion), saute a while to seal the Pork-rib. Add Dark-Soy mix well. Add water, just enough to cover the Ribs. If get too dry while braising, add more water.
  • Step 2 : Bring to boil and turn heat to low and simmer till Pork-ribs soften and sauce thicken – depending on the heat, at least 1  hr (ur preference of the Ribs softness). Add Seasoning Ingredients. Add the Shallots and Sliced Chillis and your pot of mouth-watering “Braised Pork-Rib Stew” is ready.
