Steamed Spare Pork Ribs in Black Bean Sauce & Ginger

Great food on those cold nights where you're craving something warm and tasty. These ribs are best served with some piping hot rice and some chopped cucumbers to soak up the sauce. Best thing is, this meal can be knocked up really quickly and left to cook unattended whilst you get up to kinky shit or shower.

  • 2x Strips of Spare Pork Ribs, cut up
  • 2x Tablespoons of Black Bean Sauce & Garlic
  • 1x Tablespoon of Sesame Oil
  • 1/2 cup of Dry White Wine or Chinese Rice Wine
  • 1x Tablespoon of Soy Sauce
  • A Shit Load of Pepper, well as much as you want really :)
  • 2x Tablespoons of Corn Starch (Plain Flour is fine too)
  • Handful of sliced ginger
Combined everything together in a mixing bowl and leave to sit in fridge for 1~2 hours if desired. If you're in a hurry there's no danger in not. Setup the steamer with water and bring to a boil.

Whilst the steamer is heating up, heat up a wok or pot and add some olive oil, fry up the contents until all liquid has solidified then immediately transfer contents into a bowl then into the steamer. Steam for approximately 20 minutes, or until cooked.

Serve with some veggies, even preserved veggies and piping hot rice.

Time to Prepare: 10 minutes
