Chinese Beef spare ribs recipe


Dim Sum Beef Short Ribs with Black Pepper, by thewoksoflife.comIf you’re dim sum brunch veterans like we are, you’ve probably had all the usual dumplings, buns, and rice and noodle dishes (Cantonese soy sauce pan fried noodles, anyone?). Over the course of your weekend indulgences, you’ve probably started looking for new dishes you haven’t tried before–perhaps you’ve had a chance to sample fried duck tongue (I kid you not), chicken feet, or beef tripe.

Or…maybe not.

Steamed beef short ribs with black pepper (pronounced, “ngau zhe gwot” in Cantonese) is a much tamer dish than duck tongue and chicken feet, but just as lesser known. Fortunately, it’s not only tasty but also very easy to make at home. So if you have not tried these delicious and tender ribs before, I encourage you to look out for them or ask a waiter for them the next time you’re at your favorite dim sum house!

Dim Sum Beef Short Ribs with Black Pepper, by thewoksoflife.comThese beef short ribs are steamed, just like your everyday dim sum pork spare ribs with black beans, but have a very different flavor. Cracked black pepper is the star of this dish and a perfect complement to the beefy goodness of the ribs. This cut of meat is easily found at any Korean grocery store, since thinly cut beef short ribs are very popular for Korean barbecue. If you can’t find a Korean grocery nearby, you can ask your local butcher, and he should be able to provide you with a special order cut. Once you have the beef short ribs on hand, the rest is really quite easy.

Here’s how you make it!

Dim Sum Beef Short Ribs with Black Pepper, by thewoksoflife.comYou’ll need:

  • 1 pound of beef short ribs, cut across the bone about ¼ inch thick

For the marinade:

To add before steaming the short ribs:

  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • ½ teaspoon coarsely ground/cracked fresh black pepper

Dim Sum Beef Short Ribs with Black Pepper, by thewoksoflife.comRinse the beef short ribs and trim off any visible fibrous membranes, as these will make your ribs tough.

Mix all of the marinade ingredients in a large bowl. Add the short ribs and onions, making sure that the short ribs are evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

The next day, take the ribs out of the refrigerator, and let them come to room temperature. Add the oil, cornstarch, and freshly ground black pepper. Mix well.

Set up your wok with steamer rack or steamer pot over high heat. Place your bamboo steamers in your wok if that’s what you’re using. Heat until the water is bubbling. If you’re using a steamer pot, heat the water to a gentle boil.

Dim Sum Beef Short Ribs with Black Pepper, by thewoksoflife.comWhile you’re waiting for the water, arrange the ribs on small heat-proof plates if you’re going to serve them dim sum style, or a large plate if you’re going to serve them family style. Top off with some additional fresh ground pepper to taste.

When the steamers are sufficiently preheated, turn off the heat, and carefully add the plate(s) to the steamer. Turn the heat back on, cover the ribs, and steam for 10 minutes.

Remove from the heat and serve immediately!
