Thick pork stock....ideas please.

I made some pork ribs in the crockpot with ginger, garlic and onions. We ate the ribs and then I put the liquid in the fridge to get the fat out. Now I have a thick stock and want to make something with it. Any ideas?

  1. Do you have enough to make a nice big bowl of real ramen? Add some good quality noodles, scallions, a few greens of your choice, sliced pork and a soft poached egg.

    Or maybe reduce it down to a demi-glace and use it as a sauce over pork chops.

      Ramen was my first thought too! If you don't have enough, you could combine it with another (good) stock.

    2. I've saved the liquid from cooking ribs & added it to a stew with pork shoulder, fennel, and butternut squash. Or use it in a soup, like gamjatang or maybe a tofu chigae.

      1. Gravy, congee, risotto, or soup.
