Braised Spareribs with Plum Sauce

This delicious recipe for spareribs with Asian flavors from chef Paul Tang makes a wonderful change from the typical BBQ rubs. Ideally marinate the ribs overnight and cook them slowly in the Combi steam oven, so the meat tenderizes and reaches that wonderful fall off the bone texture. The ribs can also be prepared in the traditional manner, covered with foil or a tight fitting lid in the Convection oven. The ribs can then be finished on the grill or under the broiler in the Convection oven.

Ingredients

Spareribs and Marinade


2 lbs pork spareribs , cut in half lengthwise or whole

1 tsp Kosher salt

2 tsp sugar

2 tbsp Chinese rice wine or Sherry

2 tbsp ginger, grated



Glaze


6 cloves garlic, minced

3 tbsp plum sauce

3 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tsp soy sauce

¼ cup water


Garnish


2 green onions, sliced thin

1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


Preparation

Cut the ribs apart between the bones. Place ribs in a large resealable plastic bag with the salt, sugar, wine, ginger and massage the marinade into the ribs. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. When ready to cook, place the ribs in a glass casserole or the solid Steam oven pan.


Steam Oven Method: Heat the oven to 280 degrees in the Steam mode and cook the ribs uncovered for 1 ½ - 2 hours until the meat is beginning to fall off the bone.


Convection Oven Method: Heat the oven to 300 degrees in the Convection mode. Place the ribs in an oven-proof casserole dish, add ½ cup of water and cover the dish tightly with foil. Cook for 1 ½ - 2 hours until the meat is beginning to fall off the bone.


In a small bowl whisk all the ingredients for the glaze, set aside.

Once the ribs are cooked and almost falling off the bone, brush the ribs with the glaze all over.


Heat the Convection oven in the Broil mode High or 485 degrees. Place the ribs on a foil lined rimmed baking sheet and broil for approximately 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.


Notes: remember when using the Broil mode your oven will come to temperature very quickly. Make sure an oven rack is in a suitable position for broiling before heating the oven and always broil with the oven door closed.


Makes 4 - 6 servings

Steamed Bone-In Chicken for Salads

Steaming bone-in chicken*, yields two great results. Succulent chicken that can be used for salads or sandwiches or added to pizza or a stir-fry as well as some flavorful chicken stock. The flavor of the stock will be determined by the type of aromatics and seasoning you add to the pan. This recipe uses onion, celery, carrot, bay leaf and mixed Italian seasoning.


*This is an old video that I am publishing as a recipe. And, yes, the  logo is different, but the essence is the same!  I hope you enjoy the  video and learn more about the benefits of using a Steam oven, also  known as a Combi Oven.

Ingredients

1 bone is chicken breast

1 whole chicken leg

1 small onion, peeled and halved

1 small carrot, trimmed and scrubbed

1 celery stick

1 bay leaf

1/4 tsp mixed Italian seasoning

3 stalks fresh parsley (optional)

2 cups cold water


Preparation

Place all the ingredients in the solid pan from the steam oven or in an oven safe casserole dish.


Heat the steam oven in the Steam Mode 212°F. 


Place the casserole dish in the oven and set the timer for 45 minutes.  The meat should be very tender and falling off the bone. If it's not quite there return it to the oven for 5 - 8 more minutes.


Remove the pan from the oven, carefully remove the cooked chicken pieces and place on a plate to cool.  When cool enough to handle, remove the skin and discard, shred the chicken by hand or with a knife and fork and discard the bones.  


When the stock has cooled discard the aromatics and either refrigerate or freeze the stock for later use.
