First, prepare the spare ribs. Cut the spare ribs into bite size pieces. Then mix with some cornstarch and rinse clean for 1 to 2 minutes with running water. Then pat dry the spare ribs in thick paper towels.
Then add some flavours into the spare ribs. To do this, prepare the ingredients to marinate the spare ribs.
Mix hoisin sauce and fermented bean paste into the spare ribs. Then add in Shaoxing wine and finally cornstarch. With your hand, slowly and gently massage the ribs around for about 1 minute to evenly distribute all the flavours and the ribs absorb the flavours. Cover with cling wrap and leave to marinate for 1 hour. While waiting, cut all the other ingredients needed.
Cut peeled ginger into long strips. Then chopped spring onion and red chillies as garnish. And we are ready to steam the spare ribs.
