Steamed Black Beans Spare Ribs

 During the hot scorching weather, I started looking through recipe books for recipes that are delicious and easy to cook, best without sweating out in the kitchen.  I found this recipe which is simple and only requires steaming.  In the original recipe, the pork ribs are steamed together with rice in individual serving bowls.This pork rib dish is appetising, tasty and good served with rice and an easy to cook vegetable soup [EZ Nutritious Watercress Soup].
I complained about the hot weather and my hubby daren't complain about the meal,  just a meat dish, soup and rice.  Hope, this isn't too simple a meal for the family.Recipe Source - Yum Yum Magazine No. 78 [with slight modifications]Ingredients[serves 3]300 gm pork ribs - cut into small pieces1 tbsp fermented black beans - soaked for 5 minutes, drained and coarsely chopped2-3 dried chillies - soaked and cut small piecessome chopped spring onionsMarinade3 pips garlic - chopped1 small piece ginger - chopped1 tbsp cooking wine2 tbsp light soy sauce1 tsp each of sesame oil and sugardash of pepper1 tsp cornstarchSoak pork ribs with 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda and some water for 1/2 an hour.  Rinse and drain.Marinate pork ribs with the marinade for at least 30 minutes or overnight.Arrange pork ribs in a steaming bowl with marinade, black beans and dried chillies.Steam over high heat for 30 minutes or until ribs are tender.Sprinkle spring onions over ribs before serving.
