This is a great example of a Chinese dish integrated with Hawaiian ingredients... I love the smell of taro cooking in coconut milk.

Cooking Process:


Wash ribs clean, pat dry, and marinade for no less than 15 minutes.

Peel taro, wash it clean, pat dry and cut into slices, about 1/2" thick. Uncooked taro can cause itchy skin, so wear hand gloves when peeling.

Heat oil in wok over medium heat, pan-fry sliced taro until slightly golden, 2 to 3 minutes for each side. Transfer taro to a dish, marinade with salt and set aside; saute shallots and fry spare ribs for 1 to 2 minutes until they are lightly seared.

When pork is seared, drop in green onions (reserve some for garnishing). Pour in 1 1/2 cup water and about 1/3 of the the can of coconut milk. Stir well and bring it to a simmer. Cover wok and turn heat to low.

I simmered the spare ribs for about 40 minutes when the meat was tenderand about 1/2 cup of the sauce was left. You may want to check it a couple of minutes earlier to make sure the liquid is not drying out, otherwise add some hot water.

Put in reserved taro, remaining coconut milk, salt and ground white pepper. Gently stir and turn to mix well.

Transfer all in ingredients, including the sauce, in wok to a pot for serving. Over a moderate heat, let the sauce simmer, bubble and reduce for a minute or so. Garnish with green onion. Serve hot.
