This is a lovely oriental style spare ribs dish which needs no braising yet the ribs are tender and very flavourful seasoned with fermented black beans.
A very simple dish yet awesome to serve with rice. It is savoury dish yet not salty though fermented black beans are salty.
I wouldn’t mind preparing this dish often as it is really good.
