Steamed spare ribs with preserved black beans


This is one of my favourite dim sum, a must have item for me but not for my family (kids don't know how to chew the bone and hubby doesn't like preserved black beans). Usually i was the one who finished off the whole plate (luckily just a small plate ^__^)..and i prefer those with slightly sweet taste..This recipe that i tried out, the taste is exactly like that one served in dim sum restaurant..



I also like to arrange pumpkin slices underneath, taste so yummy after pumpkin absorbed all yummy gravy from the seasoned spare ribs.

Baby Sumo said...

This is one of my fav ways to eat pork ribs, but if I wanna eat the soft bone (yuen kuat) need to braise rather than steam, if not gigit until my teeth pain LOL.

Mel said...

You know what, most of the dishes that you cooked, has always been my favourite too! I like steamed pork ribs but funny I hardly cook this :-) As least now, it just gave me a second choice what to cook tonite.

ANNA (小雨伞) said...

Hi Sonia. This is first time to leave comment here...

I love this dimsum so much!May i know where can buy the blackbean?

Lori said...

I haven't had this type of dim sum, but it looks delicious. I would especially like that pumpkin! Thanks for your note about my blog. I'm working to resolve the issue! Thanks so much for letting me know!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Sem, yes, you are right, the sour plum that use to steam Teochew fish..The issue is Mar-Apr 2007, so long and old issue ho..i still keeping issue from 2001,hehehe.

Anna, you can get black beans from wet market (go to the stall selling all kind of dry foods like onion, garlic, ikan bilis& etc), I suppose Jusco and Tesco do have this too.

Jane Chew said...

This is favorite too. Saw Ann posted last week n now ur turn. Both also looks so yummy. Use the pumpkin to absorb water sounds new to me. Must try one day.

Cheah said...

My children love this and it's a must for them when we have dim-sum.
Yours will be delicious with the sour plum.

Anonymous said...

Hi, can you please tell me what would the "chinese salted plum" be in chinese so I can ask about it in China Town here in California? Thanks so much. I love this dish !!!

Kimmy said...

Sonia, yours look better and should taste better than those at Dim Sum outlets. It's also a dish that goes well with rice or porridge. Must try.

first soak the meat with baking soda or baking powder?

Joy said...

Hi...I've been following your blog all these while and I really love what you post.
