|500 g||pork ribs|
|1 tbsp||salt (divided)|

A creamy, medium-bodied sake with a long, clean finish provides a nice counterbalance to the rich flavor of the ribs.
Clean ribs and chop into bite-sized pieces using a meat cleaver. Transfer to a bowl and marinate ribs in salt, pepper, and cooking wine for approx. 5 – 10 min. Add oil to wok and bring to temperature for frying over high heat. Mince garlic, cut green onion into fine rings, and mince ginger. Cut bell peppers into chunks.
Sprinkle potato starch over ribs and mix thoroughly until ribs are evenly coated.
Fry ribs in vegetable oil in a wok over high heat for approx. 3 – 5 min. until golden brown. Remove from heat and transfer to a sieve set over large bowl to drain oil. Remove any excess oil from wok.
Add green garlic, ginger, and green onion to oil and sauté for approx. 1 min. Then, very carefully add vinegar, sugar, half of water, and salt, and stir to combine. While sauce cooks, combine potato starch and rest of water in small bowl. Return ribs to pan and cook for approx. 1 min. Add bell peppers and stir thoroughly to mix well. Add starch slurry, a bit at a time, to thicken sauce. Enjoy alone or on a bed of rice!
