Marmite Spare Ribs 妈蜜排骨

(Recipe adapted from Y3K Recipes #42)


600g ribs (cut into pieces)   排骨 -   斩件 
Marinade    腌料    
1 cube name yee /fermented red beancurd   南乳一块   
1/2 tsp sesame oil  半茶匙麻油
1 tsp sugar  一茶匙
2 tsps custard powder    两茶匙蛋黄粉  
1 tsp baking soda    一茶匙苏打粉

Sauce ingredients

1tsp marmite  妈蜜 

2 tbsp rock sugar (milled fine)    (I omitted this)
1 tbsp maltose or mak ngah tong     1 汤匙麦芽糖   
2 tsps sugar       2 茶匙
2 tbsp hot water          2 汤匙热水
For  coating    沾粉 

Some Rice flour ( I used cornflour)  少许粘米粉/栗米粉


  1. Coat ribs with marinade for one hour
  2. Parboil no. 1 in hot oil.  Once ribs has taken on a slight colour, remove ribs.  Arrange on a plate and steam for one hour. ( I steamed for 1/2 hour as I am running out of time.)   ^_^
  3. Coat No. 2 with a little rice flour.  Deep-fry once more, drain well
  4. Combine sauce ingredients in a bowl.  Steam sauce till sugar is dissolved
  5. Combine No. 3 and no. 4 in a wok and cook briefly.  Dish up.

Sauce should not be cooked direct on fire because sugar content is high will become caramel but steamed first.

Prepared again the dish for my son who came back from Singapore to enjoy.  Refer here for the photo!
