[Sweet and Sour Pork Ribs]
First, prepare the ingredients.
The ingredients used in this dish are: one plate of ribs, Ajinomoto rice vinegar, raw flour, yellow rock sugar, lemon juice, pepper, ketchup.
Add white vinegar, yellow rock sugar and water in proportion to the pot. In order to reduce the greasiness of this fried dish, the frying sauce is purposely made with the water explosion method, in which only water is added to the pot without adding oil, and the fragrance is completely stimulated through the rapid evaporation of water, which can reduce the intake of fat and make this dish taste more refreshing and not greasy at all to eat.
Melt the sugar slowly over low heat the whole time.
Add tomato sauce to taste.
Add these two to the juice to increase the fruit acidity
The first sourness comes from white vinegar, the second from ketchup, and the third from the lemon slices we often use in summer to add fruit acidity.
The lemon slices we must remove the lemon seeds and put them in after turning off the heat, the fire into the boiling will let the lemon peel release bitterness, eat a little bit of a slightly bitter taste.
The sweet and sour sauce that gathers two sour flavors is refreshing and appetizing, with a distinctive flavor.

Many people do sugar and vinegar dishes, are directly wrapped in batter on the pot, the ingredients out of the shell wrapped in a thick layer of "armor", bite hate to be able to crash teeth. If the batter is too thin, the sweet and sour sauce will be fried soft and tasteless.
In fact, to make a crispy and delicious shell is not difficult, 1 key action pinch can not be missing!
We first put the ribs in a little salt, pepper and wine to remove the fishy aroma, then beat an egg yolk, grasp well and marinate for half an hour.
Coat the marinated ribs with raw flour, wrapping them while giving them a squeeze with your hands.
Do not underestimate this step, for one thing, it allows the powder to be firmly fixed on the meat, and for another, it allows the meat to be wrapped into a round shape, and it is not easy to disperse the powder when frying. This way the fried ribs, the shell will be more fluffy and crispy.
Pour half a pot of oil into the pot, burn to 5 or 6 percent heat, keep the heat low, all the ribs under the pot fried for about two minutes.
Slowly fry until the surface is lightly browned and then you can fish it out.
Pour the fried ribs into the prepared sweet and sour sauce while they are still hot.
Just toss quickly to coat evenly with the sweet and sour sauce.
