  • #A great restaurant favorite which tastes Just as good made at home.# Trim excess fat from spare ribs and rub with salt. Add 4 tbsps oil to the wok and fry the ginger, garlic and onion for 1-2 minutes. Add the spare ribs and stir-fry for 6 minutes.
  • Remove to a dish and add the monosodium glutamate, light soy sauce, cornstarch, egg, wine and chili oil. Marinate for 10 minutes.
  • Prepare the sauce by mixing all the sauce ingredients together in the wok and bringing them gently to the boil. Simmer for 2-3 minutes and add the spare ribs along with their marinade. Stir fry until the liquid is reduced to half its original quantity.
  • Put all the ingredients onto a roasting pan and spread out evenly. Bake at 375°F, for 25 minutes. Baste occasionally with the liquid from the tray and oil. The spare ribs should have browned well and be well coated with seasoning. Serve hot or cold. #TIME# Preparation takes 25 minutes, cooking takes 40-45 minutes. #BUYING GUIDE# Monosodium glutamate is available in most good supermarkets.
