Plan B…..Fried Asian Ribs

In celebration of Labor Day weekend, my plan was to grill some ribs; well that was ruined by the rain.  So in efforts to still have some type of rib dinner, I decided to fry them up instead, you know; just like fried pork chops.  BUT I wanted to put a twist on it and this is what I came up with…..Fried Asian Ribs

Deep Fried Asian Ribs

Deep Fried Asian Ribs


1 (3 lb. slab) Pork baby back ribs, cut into riblets

1 Tbsp. Garlic powder

1 Tbsp. Chinese 5-Spice powder

1 tsp. Black pepper

1 1/2 tsp. Salt

1 Tbsp. finely minced Ginger

1 tsp. Accent seasoning, optional

2 cups All-purpose Flour

Oil for deep frying


Wash and dry the meat, cut into riblet sections and place in a bowl.  Sprinkle the rest of the ingredients, except the flour and oil; over each riblet and work them into the meat, coating all sides with the seasonings.  Place this in the refrigerator and allow to “marinate” for a few hours.

Heat up the oil.  Pour the flour into a ziploc bag, add the riblets and toss in the flour.  Deep fry until golden in color.  The ribs may look darker because of the 5-spice powder.  Just make sure it’s cooked through completely without burning.  Serve up with your favorite sides.  I like it with steamed white rice, cucumber salad, and chamorro finadenne’.  ENJOY!
