This is a favorite at dim sum.  Shio Koji helps make the meat super tender, and gives it the familiar umami aka msg flavor.  It is really easy to pull together, too.


2 lbs spare ribs, St Louis style, cut English into 1 1/2 inch length
1 Tablespoon shio koji, enough to coat
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons fermented black beans, roughly chopped
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon ginger, minced
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 red pepper, sliced rounds (optional)

1. Marinate the ribs with the remaining ingredients for about 45 minutes.
2. Bring a steamer to boil. Steam for 30 minutes

Serves: 6
