Salted Egg Yolks Butter Pork Ribs – 牛油黃金排骨 with curry leaves & fresh chillies

Salted Egg Yolks Butter Pork Ribs – 牛油黃金排骨 with curry leaves & fresh chillies. Salted egg yolks and evaporated milk is very rich, and paired with curry leaves, the smell is so good. This is quite an easy dish to cook.

I wanted to soak a new batch of salted eggs so I went all out and used all of my leftover 8 yolks. This is also because the hubby, funny Mat Salleh that he is, is not very good with chewing ribs but he loves salted eggs yolks so I am making extra bits for him to go with his rice. You don’t have to use as many salted egg yolks. 

This dish also justify the fresh curry leaves my friend gave me to the maximum.

  • When it’s frothy add in the evaporated milk and let it bubble – stirring constantly.
  • lastly add in your red chillies, then your prepared ribs. After this, give it a good stir and serve.


Please feel free to use as many or less salted eggs yolks. I used 9 that I had left. This is because my husband loves salted egg yolks but he is not very good with ribs. Hence I want to make more yummy bits for him. You can also adjust the spiciness with the additional of more or less chillies. Please don’t save on the curry leaves. They make the dish. The fragrant smell of curry leaves just stir up my taste buds. If you are watching your carbohydrates this is a good snack food. I had them with a whole cucumber for my lunch and felt very satisfied. I admit I have some in the late afternoon too. Watching television and sucking the ribs clean. Burrrpppp
