Category: Chinese

 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Pork Ribs
  • 2 qt Water
  • 2 tb Salty black beans
  • 2 tb Oil
  • 1 Garlic cloves; crushed
  • 1 Scallions; chopped
  • 2 1/2 c Chicken stock
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 ts Sugar
  • 1 tb Thin soy sauce
  • 1 tb Oyster sauce
  • 2 tb Cornstarch
  • 4 tb Cold water


1. Have the butcher cut the spareribs into strips 1 1/2" wide and you cut
the bones apart and trim off the fat.

2. Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil, and parboil the meat for 3 minutes;
drain well.

3. Wash black beans thoroughly two times; drain, and then crush beans with
the handle of your cleaver or chop very fine with a sharp knife.

4. Heat wok, add oil, garlic and spareribs. Stir-fry for 5 minutes.

5. Add black bean mixture and all remaining ingredients except the
cornstarch and 4 tablespoons cold water. Bring to a fast boil and then turn
to medium heat, cover, and cook for 40 minutes.

6. Make a thickening with cornstarch and 4 tablespoons cold water and add
to the sparerib mixture. Bring to a boil again, and serve.

NOTE: Pork spareribs with black bean sauce will still taste delicious the
second or third day. Reheat for 7 minutes before serving. Serve over rice
as a plate dinner, accompanied by a condiment prepared with Chinese Hot
Mustard. Hot mustard requires 2 tsp. dry mustard to 2 t. cold water.
