I first uploaded a recipe for this dish under Electric Lunchbox/Itaki as it was an easy dish to prepare that way. However, I wanted bigger quantities for our actual dinner so I prepared it on the stove and I am sharing it here today.
This is a very easy set it and forget it recipe that you can simmer while you prepare the rice and the side dish and/or dessert.
The rice in the photo had some turmeric, olive oil, and salt added to the water before cooking to make it prettier and healthier. A sprinkling of minced carrots or red pepper flakes would make for a more colorful dish.
1.5 – 2 lbs country style ribs, cubed
1/2 c Lee Kum Kee brown braising sauce
1 cup water
1 onion chopped
1 tablespoon ginger
3 – 4 star anise
Place everything in a heavy saucepan. Simmer over medium low heat, cover ajar, until pork is tender and sauce is thickened, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Serve with rice and veggies!
