i love spare ribs! usually, i grill them, but this time, i tried steaming after awhile. the preparation is the same; marinated in vinegar, salt, crushed garlic, and black bean sauce (or soy, if there isn't any BBS), and sugar. then i steamed it for 10 mins. the karavila salad, has been described in another post, but i thought up a sweet turmeric sauce (1/4 cup cream, heated with two pinches of tumeric, one of salt and a tiny bit of sugar), which was very warm and comferting, a good counter point to the bitterness of the gourd.
On the side is sliced cumber, dressed with cap full of dry vermouth, into which one squeeze of wasabi paste as been mixed.
all spur of the moment ideas, which seemed to work well.
