Raining cats and dogs plus a very hard pork meat for dinner.

It's raining cats and dogs here at the moment. We can hear the wind blows very hard. Looks like there is a typhoon somewhere near us. But I'm not sure. I had my afternoon nap while waiting for my Internet connection to get back. Thank God, I was able to reschedule my interview because of this. And it's still raining though. I just had my dinner and didn't finish what I eat because the food is very hard to chew. I was craving for a Filipino dish called "Adobo" for dinner, but Mother represents herself to cook. In the end, it's awful because the pork ribs are still very hard not tender. I remind her earlier to have it boil first so that the meat will tender, but looks like she did it in her own way. Which is she did not. She lied to me. She is indeed a good liar. Now, I am still hungry and I have to endure this. Have you tried eating not so tender pork meat?

@JustBhem Nope, not that. Been busy with something the last few days. I am resting today. I was really frustrated at someone. I know I should let it go but really got on my nerves.

I heard there is a typhoon in Taiwan. I hope it doesn’t come your way! I don’t eat much pork, but certainly would want it tender!

It's near to the Philippines. Maybe that's the problem but I need to check it.

Oof, that does not sound appetizing. Pork needs to be tender especially when they are ribs.

It should be, but my Mother is doing it not right. I don't what's gotten in her mind cooking like that. No one here likes to eat the food.

Ah - tough pork isn't too good. I know tough cuts of meat can be tasty if worked with properly....

I agree but Mother did not boil it to make it tender. I really don't know she needs to lie about that. Even my sibling agreed that the pork was hard.

This is why having canned good is important too. Never trust mom with cooking.

I don't think you need to boil ribs before you cook them, but they do need to be in the oven (or on the grill) for several hours. Some types of pork, including ribs, require low and slow heat for a long time in order to make them tender. Otherwise they are just gross.

We need to so that it will be tender. At least in a low heat.

@JustBhem No you don't need to boil them. In fact, boiling them removes a lot of the flavor from the meat. Boiling them just speeds up the cooking time. If you don't boil them, you just need to cook them for a longer amount of time at low heat.

@NJChicaa I see. I know what you mean. But here, that's how we do it. We boil first the ribs then cook it.

I would probably eat if I didn't like the texture but the taste was still nice. I don't remember what hard ribs are like. At least the connection is back. Hope you'll be safe, weather-wise.
