Spareribs in Sweet Sauce (Twaejigalbi Kangjong)

Ingredients: 1 1/3 lb. pork ribs, black pepper, ginger juice, MSG, cornstarch powder, salad oil, 2 Korean green peppers, 2 red peppers, 1/4 round onion, carrot, 2 garlic, 1/4 cup sweet sauce

1. Remove excess fat from the spareribs. Boil them and then score and marinate them in the seasoning.

3. Dip the spareribs in cornstarch powder and deep-fry them in oil.
4. Place the deep-fried ribs, vegetables and sweet sauce in a pan and simmer together on low hear.

1. This is a high-grade dish which can be made easily for guests as a basic side dish if you prepare the sweet sauce beforehand.
2. To make the sweet sauce: 1 cup nicely aged soy sauce, 2/3 cup water, 1/2 lb. grain syrup (like dark corn syrup), 1 oz. ginger juice, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup rice wine. Place the above ingredients in a pan and simmer them in low heat until thick.
