My son loves braised ribs(that’s why there are 3 recipes for ribs in my blog!) but right now, with purchase restrictions and some unavailability on certain cuts of meat, I am trying country style ribs…in the Itaki!
This is an easy recipe to put together as the sauce is ready made and bottled. Just add ginger, star anise and onions. I dressed the rice up with some turmeric and olive oil. It gives plain rice a festive look and is good for you. Just a little bit works well, because if you put too much, you can actually taste the turmeric and not everyone is crazy for that taste.
*Please note that the word “cup” in any of my electric lunchbox recipe refers to the little itaki cup included with the lunchbox. It holds 40ml.*
In the bottom big bowl, add the following:
160 – 175 grams country style pork, cut into small cubes
1 cup Lee Kum Kee brown braising sauce
2 tablespoons minced onion
1 star anise
1/2 teaspoon ginger
Stir and set on the base. On the smaller upper bowl, add:
2 cups rice, rinsed and drained
2 cups water
A dash of turmeric powder
1 teaspoon olive oil
Place the little bowl on top of the bigger bowl in the base.
Add 3 cups water in base and let steam until it shuts off (about 45 minutes).
Check to see if pork is cooked through. Sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons chopped green onions.
