Dim Sum Style Pork Ribs – 豉汁蒸排骨

Happy TGIF fellow homecooks! If you love dimsum and pork ribs, this is the perfect dish for weekend brunch! This dish is usually chopped into very small bite sizes BUT for greater satisfaction we cut them into larger chunks hehe 🙂 The key to making this dish great is to sauté the ribs first with the other ingredients to release the aromatics!

The perfect steamed pork ribs with black beans in our opinion, has a light appearance with plenty of flavor and a hint of black bean present.

Try recreating this dish at the comfort of your own home especially when you are not fond of crowded places to get your dim sum fix 🙂
