Braised Pork Rib with Mushroom and Water Chestnut

Usually when I asked what meat dish he would want to have, he would usually go for pork rib. He said the pork rib dishes in restaurant are not only expensive, but also come in very small portion. Furthermore, I will buy the more expensive soft rib. But after I have repeated the same few rib recipes many times, one day I decided to try something different.

Marinate the pork rib with light sauce sauce and white pepper for an hour. Mix with some corn flour and stir fry with some cooking oil. Set the rib aside.

Leave some oil in the wok. Stir fry some minced garlic and sliced ginger until fragrant.

Add in mushroom, oyster sauce, salt, light soy sauce, sugar and water. Bring to boil.

Pour the mixture into the pot with pork rib and simmer for an hour. Half way, add in water chestnut. Then, open the lid and turn to maximum heat for a while to get a slightly thicken sauce.

I like this dish very much. Although it is a meat dish, but I don't feel that heavy with the water chestnut. I think it will appear on my dining table again and again.
