Pork Rib Dish aka Pai Gu Wang


This is the friendly resident chef of BenardCometh Revelations taking over for this post in order to reveal to all of you the heavenly secret of making a heavenly dish.

This time around, you all will learn how to make delicious irresistible Chinese Pork Rib dish or known as "Pai Gu Wang".
(Pardon me, my Muslim friends. This is a traditional Chinese dish that uses pork as the main ingredient. However, you can always replace the choice of meat to beef or even chicken. The texture won't be the same but the flavor is.)

Just to show you what you will be making, here's a picture for you to get motivated.

Don't drool all over now. In just a few simple steps, you will learn how to make the pork rib dish yourself. It is very easy to make and I will try to make it easier by making a graphical how-to.

The ingredients needed are:

Soy sauce
Sesame seed
Corn powder/Corn flour
Frying powder
Tomato sauce
Chili Sauce

Alright, done with the ingredients. Lets start shall we?

First of all, slice the pork into considerable size

The first part of making the dish is done. Now lets move on to making the sauce. The sauce is a very important element in the dish as it gives the flavor while the meat gives the texture feel. Mix together and you will get one heck of a dish.

So, the preparation of the sauce.

Slice the onions

Slice the garlic into small pieces

When the mixture smells nice, throw in the pineapples and add some tomato sauce and chili sauce. Stir for a while and proceed to add some juice from the pineapple can. After that throw in the fried pork and proceed to mix them together.

Before we continues, a little bit of info here. I am using the canned pineapple as it is easier. Fresh pineapple is always the best choice, but canned pineapple will do just fine.

Canned pineapple
Any brand of canned pineapple will do.

I am using this brand just because I am very patriotic. Very. Madness? Madness? This is MALAYSIA!!!!!!!!!...

Anyway, lets get back to the focus of the post alright? It's the end already anyway. After stir-fry it for a while, just a while after you add in the fried pork, pour the content into a bowl and one pork rib dish is completed.
