If you've ever been to Chinese dim sum, you've most likely had this dish before—Steamed Black Bean Spare Ribs. I can never say no to the simple yet magical combination of black beans and pork ribs. They are one of my favourite things to eat at dim sum, and I've learned to enjoy its saucy texture over the years. My recent craving for it had me running to the local TNT Chinese supermarket where I bought a bag of Chinese dried black beans to experiment. Little did I know it was so easy (and fast) to cook!
It was a dark and stormy night (not really); dinner was an hour late, the sun had set about 30 minutes ago and there was little time to do off-camera lighting setup. I had hastily arranged the Chicken Nanban into cocktail glasses and hoped it looked fancy....Let’s be honest, my attempts were in vain and I might as well add that Chicken Nanban is NOT a fancy dish—it’s messy, ugly and tastes freaking amazing. Every juicy bite explodes with sweet and tangy nanban sauce which gives me a boost in appetite.
