  • 1 pound pork sparerib tips
  • 2 tablespoons black bean sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger grate on microplane grater
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or ground white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  1. Cut between each sparerib to separate each rib tip. In a large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Add in the ribs and toss well to coat the spareribs evenly.
  2. Transfer spareribs and sauce into a shallow, heatproof pan that will fit inside your wok (a pie plate or 9” cake pan works great.)
  3. Set steaming rack inside of wok and fill with water almost up to height of rack. Turn heat to high and when water is boiling, turn heat to medium-high. Set pan with spareribs on top of a steaming rack in wok. Steam on med-high heat for 18-20 minutes until ribs are no longer pink. Make sure that when you are steaming that you don't run out of water in the wok. Replenish with additional water, if needed.
