Plum Lime Spare Ribs May 25, 2007

Posted by Angeleyes in Creative Concoction, Meat, Non-Halal.

My PiggyBeng don’t fancy sweet stuff so normally he will not buy anything sweet to be consumed. However, thing changed this year… not sure why he suddenly fell in love with calamansi with sour plum juice drink! initially it was umbra with sour plum but since we can’t find any concentrate for that, the next best thing is calamansi with sour plum.

We went high and low looking for the calamansi and sour plum concentrate but it was not easy to find until one day we end up in Giant! How strange! It was called Plum Lime instead of calamansi.

Then I was lamenting about dono what to do with the pork ribs that I’ve bought so PiggyBeng suggested we tried using the PlumLime concentrate instead! And the out come was quite satisfying too!



  • 300-400g Spare ribs
  • 2tsp Corn flour
  • 1.5tsp Light soy sauce
  • 2tbsp PlumLime sauce mix with 1tbsp water
  • Oil for deep fry
  • 1/4 Cup water


  1. Marinate the spareribs with corn flour and light soy sauce for at least 30 minutes. The longer the better as the sauce can penetrate through the meat.
  2. Heat up oil in saucepan to deep fry the spare ribs for about 10 minutes. Lift up and drain.
  3. Heat up wok with 1tbsp oil and pour in the PlumLime mix in and stir for a little while.
  4. Put in the fried ribs and stir fry in the PlumLime mix for about 5 minutes adding about 1/4 cup of water for simmering. Lift up when the sauce has thicken.
