Well, I made it through the year from hell!
it's still early on New Years' Day, but I'm cooking my favourite pork ribs proper Chinese style, a process that takes all day. Will have for dinner tonight. The ribs were chopped into bite-sized pieces by the market vendor.
Step one is to cover the ribs with cold water and bring to the boil. As soon as the water boils, drain it off through a colander. Drain the ribs and wash the pan. This cleans the ribs and gets rid of any scum, adhering impurities etc. I then re-cover with cold water, bring back to the boil and simmer for 45 minutes.
Note that no seaoning is added yet. After 45 minutes, drain and let cool.
