spare ribs with salted black beans

k was not able to go to the grocery last night after his work, he had an overtime. fortunately, we still have a few spare ribs slices in the freezer. that will do for k's lunch at work and for me and m at home. i just planned to prepare spare ribs with oyster sauce, so last night i had the pork ribs boiling already until tender (just to avoid the hassle of waking really early to prepare this). then when i was about to prepare the marinade... toinks... there was no more oyster sauce... yaiks!!! what to do?! hehehe... well, anyways, i continued boiling the pork ribs until tender then i'll decide tomorrow when i wake up what to do.

and so the morning came, i went to the kitchen and looked around. i couldn't just deep-fry the pork ribs, k's not really a fan of just frying and couldn't turn it into soup since we don't have vegetables anymore. i saw this can of black beans, why not. so, i prepared this pork ribs with black beans and i asked kim to taste it and if it's okay for him... he approved it and said just like the ones he tasted during fiestas. hehehe...

7 slices pork spare ribs
1 small onion, quatered
1 pork cube
salt and pepper
2 tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, sliced
1 thumbsized ginger, minced
3 tbsp. black beans, drained, washed and mashed

in a small casserole, place the first 4 ingredients. pour enough water just to cover the pork ribs. boil and then simmer for 1-1/2 hours or until the pork ribs are tender. you may keep on adding water along the way.

when the pork ribs are tender, drain and reserve 1/4 cup of the broth. set aside.

in a wok, heat the olive oil. saute the ginger and garlic until aromatic and a little browned. add the pork ribs and the reserved broth. continue mixing over high heat until the broth has evaporated.

then lower the heat and continue frying the pork ribs until light brown. then add the mashed black beans and sliced onions. continue mixing until cooked and so as to avoid burning the pork ribs and the black beans.

no need to add salt and pepper since the black beans are salted already.
