To Marinate the Ribs

  • 1 lb of pork ribs
  • ⅓ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of white pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon of dark soy sauce

To Make the Fried Rice

  • 2 tablespoons of oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 8 dried pieces of shiitake mushrooms, cut in half
  • 3 to 5 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 3 slices of chopped ginger
  • ½ teaspoon of sugar
  • ¼ cup of peas
  • ½ cup of carrots, diced
  • 2 teaspoons of soy sauce, light variety
  • ½ cup of water
  • 2 cups of uncooked rice
  • Water as per rice cooker requirements


  1. Prepare the ribs. Add all marinade ingredients and toss the ribs in the sauce. Set aside for marination for about an hour.
  2. Caramelize the mushrooms. Add a tablespoon of oil in the wok; heat it to medium level and stir fry the mushroom in it till they are caramelized. Remove from wok and keep aside.
  3. Cook the ribs. In order to prepare the sauce, add another tablespoon of oil to a wok set ay medium heat. Brown the ribs in the oil. Add in ingredients like sugar, garlic and ginger. Once these ingredients are stir-fried add on the soy sauce, carrots and half a cup of water. Bring to a boil and cook for about 5 to 10 minutes. Simmer at low heat till liquid has almost evaporated.

  1. Prepare the rice. In this step add the rice and water to the rice cooker. You could use some of the water you used to soak the mushrooms; also you could use vegetable, chicken or pork stock. Add in salt, the mushrooms and shake the mixture. Also, allow the ribs to be placed on top.
  2. Adding the peas. As the rice cooker cooks, a few minutes before it finished, add on the peas. This will ensure that they are cooked enough and not overcooked.


  • An alternate way of cooking is to add on cooked rice to the prepared ribs and sauce.
  • You can add on any stir fried vegetable dish on the side to make it a complete meal.
