Pork Ribs in Plum Sauce 排骨梅子酱

Not too long ago, I went to the supermarket to get Hoisin Sauce but grab the Plum Sauce instead. I only realised my mistake when I got home. Hence, I used it as a dipping sauce when I buy roasted duck.

At the rate I'm using it, I know it will end up in the bin when it expired, Not wanting to waste it, I experiment it with one of my rib dish and it went really well.

  • 500g Pork Ribs
  • Salt to taste

  • 1 tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese Cooking Wine
  • 1 tablespoon Corn Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Power or 1 teaspoon grated garlic

Sauce to mix well:
  • 2 tablespoon Plum Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Tomato Sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon Water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce

How to do it:
  1. Marinate pork ribs with marinade for 30 minutes.
  2. Deep fry the ribs for about 5 minutes or 80% done.
  3. Drain and set aside.
  4. Heat the sauce in a wok.
  5. Add in the rib.
  6. Mix the rib well with the sauce.
  7. Toss well till the sauce thicken and ribs are completed cooked.
  8. Season with salt.
  9. Dish and serve.


  1. Plum sauce is great for cooking, I like to use for salad too.

  3. This is a definite 'make for suppper' this Friday because my son is coming for dinner and he just moved into his own digs...this kind of dinner will make him want to come more often i hope

  4. @Jess, I don't usually buy sauces cos I can never finish using them.

    @Belly, hope you like it

    Natalie, :) I bet he will! Nothing beat mom's cooking. :)

  5. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!

  6. you deep fry the rib w high heat or ?

  7. @Mabel, Medium will do. You want to get the ribs to be nicely brown on the outside and not totally cooked.
