    Recipe Introduction

    This recipe is as originally posted. FYI, Pork buttons I think are just the end part of the ribs as it has little cartilage but it is not the tail. I think some people barbecue this. I think your family may enjoy this.

    This is what I made with the PORK BUTTONS. Pork ribs can be substituted for these. It was very good.

    2 lbs Pork buttons
    2 TBSP sugar
    1 tsp salt
    2 clovesgarlic
    1/2 cup finely chopped onions
    4 TBSP white wine (or sherry or chinese wine)
    2 TBSP Hoisin Sauce
    2 drops sesame oil
    2 TBSP catsup

    1 tsp salt
    2 TBSP sugar
    2 cloves garlic chopped
    1/2 cup finely chopped onions
    4 TBSP white wine
    2 TBSP Hoisin Sauce
    2 drops of sesame oil
    2 TBSP catsup


    Mix all ingredients for marinade and add meat. Marinate overnight in the fridge.

    Add 1/4 cup water and cook meat in Presuure cooker ** and cook for 5-6 minutes. (till tender)

    ** I find it faster to cook in Pressure Cooker than using a slow cooker but I am sure this would be good cooked in a slow cooker too. I use the Pressure Cooker almost every day and cooking is done in 7-12 minutes and Dinner served in 30 minutes.

    Remove meat from the pressure cooker and cook in a wok till liquid is gone.

    At this point it is okey to serve as is and moist and good tasting.

    BUT I cooked it further.

    I then placed it in my (Turbo) - convection oven so it came out like barbecued meat.I placed half of sauce on top and then turned the meat after 8 minutes and placed the other half of the sauce on top of the other side and cooked another 8 minutes till done.

    I served it with rice and kimchee.

    PS. I am sure you can prepare this too by putting it in the oven on low temperature and turning after cooking till meat is tender.

    DH and pop in guests loved it..
