Soy Sauce Rib Tips

When I am looking for something fast and easy to make…I usually turn to this simple recipe. My kids love eating these ribs with a bowl of white rice and some cut up cucumbers. Its flavorful and I don’t have to slave all afternoon in the HOT KITCHEN. Sometimes I double up my batch and freeze them for the following week.

Ingredients:
3 lb rib tips —blanch
1 tablespoon SALT –for blanching the rib tips2 C water
Olive oil
Black pepper
Sliced onion–garnish

Seasoning for Marinate:
1/2 C soy sauce
1/4 C honey
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder

DIRECTION:
Cut the rib tips into little sections.
In a huge pot of water with 1 Tablespoon salt….blanch the tips for about 10-15 minutes. Once you see all the gunk float up to the top..drain and rinse the tips well under cold water.
Next, take the rinse tips and put into a bowl (with lid) pour in the soy sauce, garlic powder, honey, onion powder. Marinate for 2 hours or over night in the refrigerator–optional…I just like the flavor to marinate but if you don’t have time you can cook it right away because you will cook the ribs in the marinate so it’s still gonna be very flavorful.

In a nonstick pan with a little olive oil…pour in the tips with all the sauce and seasonings (marinate). Cook for about 10 minutes then pour in the 2 cups of water and place a lid on the pot and turn heat to medium low. Cook for about 45-60 minutes with lid. Next, uncover and turn heat to medium high so the sauce can thicken and caramelize the rib tips.
Turn off heat and garnish with sliced onion and cracked black pepper.

Goes so well with a bowl of jasmine rice and sliced cucumbers.

ENJOY!!!!
