Simple Steamed Pork Rib in Black Bean Sauce
Try this popular Chinese home-cooked dish that is really light, and simple-to-prepare.
Black bean is another widely-used seasoning in Chinese cooking, which can be found in
many western countries in the form of pre-mixed black bean sauce in jars. It is usually
made from fermented soya beans, or sometimes fermented black beans; and not to be
confused with the raw black bean on its own.
If you like a little spicy taste, do try the more jazzed-up,
spicy option of this dish.
- 500g pork rib
- 5 tablespoons fermented black bean
- 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- Some spring onion, finely chopped
- Chop the pork rib into bite sizes, marinate with a the sugar, sesame oil, and chopped garlic.
- Crush the fermented black bean, add it into the marinated pork rib.
- Arrange the pork rib chunks in a steaming-friendly dish so that they are in one layer if possible (to get cooked evenly). Pour in everything from the marinate.
- Place it in a steamer and steam it on high for about 40 minutes.
- To check if meat is fully cooked, try sticking a sharp needle or fork into it.
- Sprinkle the chopped spring onion over.
- Serve with steaming-hot boiled rice.
- You can add some rice wine to the marinate mixture to tenderise the meat and to increase the aroma.
- If you are cooking rice with a rice cooker, just place the dish over the rice when you start cooking it.
When the rice is ready, the pork rib will be ready too!
