Dim Sum Style Steamed Pork Ribs is a very popular dish at the dim sum restaurants. These normally comes in very small dim sum plates and you may find that you just may not have enough of them. The good news is you can easily replicate this dish in your home kitchen. However, I prefer to use fermented bean paste. You can choose to use fermented black bean paste instead. You will surely be pleasantly delighted at how close it tastes like the restaurant pork ribs and you can even adjust the recipe to your own personal taste. Serve this hot over steamed rice as a meal.
