Chinese Steamed Spareribs with Black Bean Sauce
|Pork sparerib||1 1⁄2 Pound (rib tips)|
|Black bean sauce||2 Tablespoon|
|Chinese rice wine/Dry sherry||1 Tablespoon|
|Grated ginger||1⁄2 Teaspoon (on microplane grater)|
|Garlic||2 Clove (10 gm), minced|
|Ground black pepper||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Cooking oil||1 Teaspoon|
|Sesame oil||1 Teaspoon|
1. Cut the spareribs crosswise into 1" - 2" sections. Combine the rest of the ingredients. Transfer spareribs and sauce into a shallow, heatproof dish that will fit inside your steamer (a pie plate works great.) Let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
2. Set spareribs in steamer. Steam on med-high heat for 18-20 minutes until ribs are no longer pink. Make sure that when you are steaming that you don't run out of water in the steamer. Replenish with additional water, if needed.
