  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil or peanut oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds pork spare ribs, cut to 1-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 medium-sized leek, thinly sliced
  • white sesame seeds for garnish, (optional)
  • thinly sliced scallions or leeks for garnish, (optional)


  • 3 tablespoons spicy black bean sauce or 2 tablespoons black bean sauce with 1/2 tablespoon chili oil
  • 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Mix together ingredients for the sauce. Set aside.

  2. In a wok or frying pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add spare ribs and stir-fry until brown on all sides, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add ginger, garlic, and leeks and cook until aromatic, about 1 minute. Pour in sauce mixture. Cover with a lid and simmer for about 10 minutes. Sauce should be reduced enough to coat the spare ribs. Transfer to serving plate, garnish with optional sesame seeds and scallions, and serve with rice.
