The time may vary depending on your cut, water density, gas intensity etc. Next, separate the stock and the ribs. Cut through into rib pieces. the knife glides through, that’s when you know your ribs are 90% cooked.
Next, marinate the ribs in a bowl with chopped ginger, garlic, onion, green chillies, salt, red chilli powder, and turmeric powder. Let it rest for 4-5 hours. In a wok, add butter, and in the extra marinade of chopped onion, garlic etc. Let it fry, then add in the ribs. cook in high flame, with constant tossing. Then, add in the pork stock, cover and cook. Once, the gravy reduces, and also thickens, add in the sauce mix. Coat every piece in the sauce mix, let it cook in medium flame another 10 mins. Nice, brown coating appears on the ribs. Its ready to be served. Enjoy with ramen, noodles, rice or just the ribs!
