This is a finger licking good spare ribs dish that tastes not sourish but has a lovely sour aroma.  The cooking time is a bit longer but it is worth the long braising time when you enjoy the tasty ribs with rice.
Awesome, homey dish which you must make for your family.   I believe this dish is good with chicken.

'Black vinegar is reputed to have an array of health benefits like other vinegar. Black vinegar has a deep color, rich in flavor and is a tasty ingredient for dipping sauces and braised dishes. Black vinegar is made from unpolished rice, millet, wheat or sorghum. It has long been used in China and Japan as natural treatments for the heart and blood vessels. Black vinegar contains acetic acid, an organic acid that may help to reduce glucose or sugar levels in the blood which can have a preventative effect with an array of cardiovascular diseases, including high blood pressure, artery disease, heart disease and stroke'.  
With the above benefits of black vinegar, we may well use this ingredient often when preparing meat dishes.

Hi Kimmy, I cooked this today. I used Pat Chun Black Rice Vinegar that I have in my pantry. Not sure if it's the correct black vinegar. Same one for cooking confinement pork leg & ginger? I didn't smell any aroma while it was stewing. :( But the sauce tasted so good with white rice. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Hi Lissa, glad you tried this dish. There are numerous brands of black vinegar in the market. You may have fine tune a little to get a perfect taste. Black vinegar isn't as strong as white vinegar.
