“This is my mom's recipe.. and one of my favorite so far. Taste just like the steamed ribs at a Chinese restaurant.”
1hr 30mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut any excess fat off the spare ribs.
  2. Combine all the ingredients and spare ribs into a heat proof bowl.
  3. Marinate for 30 minutes.
  4. Place the spare ribs into a steamer, steam for one hour or until tender on medium high heat.
  5. Note: for those who don't have a steamer, I suggest to use a wok. Place 2 wooden chop stick diagonally on the wok and 2 more wooden chop stick horizontal on the wok. Fill the wok with water just a little bit below the chopstick. Then, place the spare ribs on top of the chop stick; afterward, cover and steam, but you have to check it often (every 15 minutes or so) to refill water into the wok.
