Main Dish

Number of serving: 6
1/2 lb soft bone pork ribs - cut into bite-size

1 tbsp black bean - wash and lightly smashed

2 cloves garlic - minced

1 tbsp minced ginger

A pinch of cornstarch/tapioca starch


1 tbsp light soya sauce

1/2 tsp sugar

1/4 tsp white pepper

1 tbsp Shaoxing wine

1 tbsp sesame oil


  • Marinate pork ribs with salted black beans, garlic, ginger and seasonings.
  • Leave for at least 10 minutes.

    Add in cornstarch/tapioca starch to bind lightly.
  • A pinch will do cos pork ribs should be fairly moist with sauce after steaming and too much cornstarch/tapioca tends to dry up the dish
  • Leave this aside while you cook rice in the rice cooker.
  • Watch out for the rice to loose the big bubbles and just before it finishes cooking and turn to 'warm' function, put in the prepared pork ribs to steam.
  • Alternatively steam prepared pork ribs over rapidly boiling water for 7 - 8 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with sesame oil before serving hot.
