chinese-style short ribs

We got an awesome steamer from our cousins. It's a must-have for Chinese cooking. This dish can be done in 30 minutes! Easy + Healthy + Simple + Yummy = My kind of a dish!


Pork short ribs - about 1 lb (1-inch pieces)

Soy sauce - 4 TBS
Sesame oil - 1 tsp
Garlic - 2 tsp (minced)
Ginger - 2 tsp (minced) **see TIPS
Sugar -  1/2 TBS
Chili flakes (or fresh chili) - 1~2 tsp
Water - 2 TBS
Black pepper - 1/2 tsp 

Cilantro - handful (depends on how much you want)
Green onion [optional] - 2 stalks (chopped)


  1. Mince garlic and ginger. Chop chili if you are using the fresh one. 
  2. Combine ribs with everything except cilantro & green onion. Let it sit in the sauce for at least 15 min (20-30 min).


  1. Boil water for steam pot. 
  2. When the water is boiling, steam for 15 minutes. 
  3. Turn off the heat, add cilantro and green onion on top. Cover and let it sit for another 5 minutes. 


  • Serve right away with hot rice


  •  You can add more or less ginger and garlic, depending on your taste.
