Do you like those steamed pork ribs from dim sum restaurants?Â I do and can never have enough of them.Â Â They have a certain flavour which I couldn’t make out what it is.Â If anyone knows, please do tell me.Â Usually, most good Chinese recipes are in Chinese recipes book which I can’t read.
Anyway, I tried making some pork ribs with black beans. I stewed it with the pressure cooker as it is too tedious to steam it as it takes a long time to get soften.
Basically, I used:
500 grams pork ribs.Â (to buy the right one, look for spare ribs which is the long bones with meat wrapped around it or buy the soft bones (nooi kut).Â In Hokkien, it is call ‘pai kut’ which is not to be confused with ‘bak kut’ because bak kut has the spinal bones as well.)
1 small piece of ginger, smashed
Either steam or stew them over lower fire until soft.Â If you like, add some cut red chillies and spring onions before serving.
The taste is not quite there, like those dim sum restaurants but nevertheless, this dish make a good meal with white rice.
