Braised Pork Ribs with Mushrooms and Chestnuts

Bought some ribs over the weekend but not sure what to cook with it, didn't want to deep fry the ribs so do a simple braise dish with it...

300g pork ribs
6 dried mushrooms – soaked
12 dried chestnuts – soaked
6 tau pok – deep fried bean curd
some ginger slices
1 tsp minced garlic
6 shallots – peel and sliced
3 cups of water

1 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp wine
1 tsp sesame oil
a little light soy sauce

1. Heat 2 tbsp of oil, fry ginger till fragrant then add in shallots and garlic and stir fry a while. Add pork ribs and fry a while then add in oyster sauce, wine and some water. Stir well.
2. Transfer pork ribs and the rest of the ingredient except tau pok into a pot. Braised over medium heat for 15min. Lower the heat and simmer for another half an hour. Add in tau pok and simmer for another 15min.
