Braised Pork Rib has been the family favorite dish . Wherever we eat out, this is a dish we will most probably not miss out. Homecooked ones are just as good as those served in restaurants. I tried braising them with tao pau and brown tofu and it turned out delicious and brings comfort to me when the appetite is not good. You can either serve them with porridge or rice. For WB and myself, we served it with porridge. Sunday lunch was this tasty and flavorful dish with teochew porridge. Yumz !
