Twice Cooked Pork Ribs

I woke up yesterday and my mom was missing.  Well, she's not around and got a message from a anonymous number that there's a pork ribs in the fridge.  Then, I realized maybe she went to our province.

I've been wondering what to do with pork ribs since I'm already sicked of cooking it pork ribs barbecue style so I decided not to touch it for the whole day and hoping an idea pop out of my mind.  It took me some time for an idea to pop out, well, it's night already when I thought of an idea.

I'm planning to pressure cooked the ribs with inasal-styled marinate until fork tender then I will grill it.  But guess what?  I over cooked it and turned out fall-of-the-bone tender, not the way I want it.  Seeing it like that, I quickly changed my plan and instead of grilling I will finish it in the oven.  So I did.  It turned out really nice.  The outer layer of the meat is crispy but the inside is so tender as if its melting in your mouth.  It really goes well with the vinegar dipping sauce I made.  The richness of the meat is balance by the acidity of the vinegar made of balsamic vinegar and plain white vinegar spiced with chopped onion and a hint of dried chili.

Ingredients

1 kilo                       Pork Ribs
3 stalks                    Lemongrass
1 head                     Garlic, crushed
1 bulb                      Onion, quartered
1 teaspoon               Ground Black Pepper
1 teaspoon               While Black Pepper
2 thumb-sized          Ginger, crushed
3 Tablespoons          Balsamic Vinegar
6 Tablespoons          White Vinegar
3 Tablespoons          Salt
3-4 Liters                 Water, just keep the whole ribs submerged in water

Vinegar Dipping Sauce

3 Tablespoons           Balsamic Vinegar
6 Tablespoons           White Vinegar
half bulb                   Onion, chopped
salt to taste

Procedure

Combine pork ribs, lemongrass, garlic, onion, black pepper, ginger, balsamic vinegar, white vinegar, salt and water in a pressure cooker and boil.  When it start to boil, cover the pressure cooker and pressure cook for an hour, if you decided to grill it 30-45 minutes will do.  Cooking it for an hour would result in a fall of the bone meat.  Gently remove the ribs in the pressure cooker at pop it in the freezer overnight.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

Take out the ribs from the freezer and baste it with oil of your choice.  Pop it in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove the ribs from the oven and baste with oil.  Increase the oven temperature to 220 degrees Celsius and baked for another 30 minutes.  Serve with vinegar dipping sauce.

For the vinegar dipping sauce, simply combine all the ingredients  You may add more chili of you want it hot.
