My dad absolutely loves going to yum cha 飲茶 as far back as I can remember. And Black Bean Sauce Spare Ribs and Rice 豉汁排骨飯 is one of his favorites! A must-order every time we go “Dim Sum”-ing.

Ever since he attended Chinese culinary school, he makes a lot of dim sums at home, like these Shumai Pork Dumplings. And I was his most avid taste-tester chomping down all his experiments. hehe~

So this year’s Father’s Day, we’ve recreated my Dad’s favorite Spare Ribs and Rice in Instant Pot!

You won’t believe how Easy it is to make in the Instant Pot, and how Tasty it comes out!!

  • Spareribs – super tender with a bite, moist & juicy, real flavourful
  • Rice – packed with fragrance and soaked with flavors from black bean sauce marinade & spare ribs
  • Garnish – fresh green onions add a refreshing crunch while chili spices it up a bit

Super flavorful & comforting meal that is so appetizing & easy to eat. We accidentally ate up all the extra portion meant to be packed for lunch! oops… 😛

Great family one pot wonder for busy nights!
