Cantonese people like to use Douchi as seasoning to cook Cantonese food, steamed fish, steamed meat and steamed ribs. Among them, spare ribs with soy sauce is my favorite. It’s also one of the dishes that you must order every time you eat Cantonese morning tea. The ribs are fresh and juicy, and the flavor of black bean is rich. Cooking by steaming, it keeps the original flavor of the ribs, healthy and less oil. It’s really nutritious, delicious and healthy!
