4. Comfort Cooking: Steamed pork ribs in black bean sauce
Making it at home means you can have a version that is free of MSG (monosodium glutamate). ST PHOTO: HEDY KHOO
Replicate this dim sum dish of steamed pork ribs in black bean sauce. Making it at home means you can have a version that is free of MSG (monosodium glutamate).
Preserved black beans are so tasty, you do not even need oyster sauce to marinate the meat.
I suggest using soft bone ribs. Those who love this cut feel joy biting into the crunchy soft bones.
The next best cut for this cooking method is spare ribs, which are more easily available. Get the portion which the Americans refer to as the St Louis-style cut. It is the flatter portion of a rack of spare ribs with the sternum bone, cartilage and rib tips removed.
