Steamed Ribs with Tasty Sauce


One of the dishes that my mom made, easy peasy. This recipe is modified from The Best of Patsie Chong - Pregnancy & Confinement recipe book which I've gotten sometime back. Other than confinement dishes, there are a lot of simple but brilliant recipes which one can play around with. Her version of the recipe called for double-boiling these ribs for 2 hours. I've thought of dumping them into the slow cooker for 3 hours but mom said she will try steaming instead. It's really tasty as stated.

1 tbsp chopped garlic
1 tsp chopped ginger
1 tbsp chopped chilli
1 tbsp Shao Shing wine

Mix all ingredients together for 15 mins or longer. Steam for 30 mins or until spare ribs are tender.
