I recently rediscovered this steamed black bean spareribs recipe that I used to cook years ago, when my family was small and I had more time to experiment in the kitchen. The renewed interest was inspired by this Hong Kong style sparerib recipe.
Steamed spareribs are easy and convenient for busy households. The meat is prepared ahead of time, and left to marinate in the fridge. In the morning, simply cook in a steamer while you go about your other tasks before sending the kids off to school.
