Chinese Pork Tail

By author Dish Ditty Recipes


  • 2.5lb Pork Tail
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion (diced)
  • 1/2 Red Bell Pepper (diced)
  • 1/2 cup Sherry or Sweet Vermouth
  • 1/2 cup Chicken Broth
  • 1/4 cup Light Soy Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Spare Rib Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Black Bean Garlic Sauce


Step 1
Salt & pepper the pork. Heat a large stock pot and add oil. Bring oil up to a medium high temperature and brown the pork in batches. Remove between each batch to be sure the pork actually browns. Keep the pork set aside for now.
Step 2
Add the diced onion and diced red peppers and cook until they are translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
Step 3
Add back in the pork with the sherry. Cook for 2 more minutes, stirring frequently.
Step 4
Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
Step 5
To serve, you can thicken it with cornstarch/water mixture (be sure to let it boil for at least 1 minute), or leave it as is.

“Pork tail?” you ask… Yes! It is something found in the Chinese markets and is usually very cheap to purchase. Most of the time I use it for soup, but this time I got a little creative… and it worked!

For those of you not familiar with pigs tail, it’s like a riblet. There is quite a bit of meat on the pigs tail which makes it great for a dish like this or for soup.
