Stewed Lo Bak (turnip) & Pork Ribs - Mummy's Recipe is the best! - Featured in Group Recipes

Stew Lo Bak (Chinese turnips) and Pork Ribs

This simple recipe of Mum's gets it mouthwatering flavor from the perfectly complimented flavors and the low heat braising that turns it all into melt-in-your mouth goodness.


½ kg Pork ribs
1.3 kg lo bak (Chinese turnips) cut in chunks
5 dried chilies
2 tb oyster sauce
1 cube chicken stock (without MSG)
1 bulb garlic chopped
Salt and white pepper to taste

Note: buy local lo bak not those from China because they have bitter taste.

Boil pork rib, drained and set aside.  Heat oil in wok, add garlic and fry till fragrant. Add pork ribs, dried chili and fry on high heat until the meat looks somewhat dry.  Add lo bak (Chinese turnips) and continue frying for 2 mins.  Add oyster sauce, chicken stock and water. The water should cover all the ingredients with 1 in. of water above it. Bring to boil and turn heat to low and stew for 1 hour.  

I have submitted this entry to  Malaysian Monday.  Do check out 3 hungry tummies or test with a skewer for more information.
