Deep Fried Ribs

Deep Fried Ribs

If you love the traditional fried chicken, you will love this Deep fried ribs! Full of flavors of a grilled ribs but a much quicker and easier meal to throw it in your deep fryer for less than 10 minutes!! 

Ingredients to get started:

1 slab of extra meaty ribs, sliced individually for quick marinating 

2 teaspoon of paprika
3 teaspoons of salt
3 teaspoons of ground black pepper
3 tablespoons of granulated garlic
2 teaspoons of ground ginger
2 tablespoons of onion powder
1/3 cup of brown sugar
4 table spoons of granulated chicken stock (or MSG )
1/2 cup of water or chicken stock (omit granulated)
1/2 a package of tempura batter
1 large bowl or large zip lock freezer bag 


Slice ribs individually for faster frying. In a large bowl or zip lock freezer bag, throw in the ribs and all the ingredients listed, except for the tempura. If you use chicken stock, omit the granulate and water. Once all the ingredients is in the bag, simply zip and massage the ribs right in the bag. Once the ingredients and the ribs are well mixed, it can be marinated for at least 10 min or overnight in the fridge. It can also be frozen for later use. 

After the ribs are marinated, and ready to fry. Add in the tempura flour, mix well, then immediately drop into the hot oil. Please use caution as oil can splatter. 

Frying:  A fryer is highly recommended. It's quicker and easier. Fry at 375 degrees for about 10- 15 minutes, turn the ribs for even browning. Cooking varies depending on the thickness of the ribs. 

For a healthier option, bake at 425 degrees covered for 45 minutes, then broil high for browning for about 2 minutes eachside. 

Serve with a side of jasmine rice or a favorite side.
