Pork Spare Ribs Chow Fun with Black Bean Sauce

This dish is having the best of both worlds!  Chow fun with the savory flavors of black bean sauce.  Not to be confused with the black beans found in Mexican cooking, Chinese fermented black beans (also called salted black beans) are made by fermenting soybeans in garlic, salt and other spices.  Chinese black beans have a very strong flavor and makes dishes savory in taste.  We use only the tenderest part of the spare ribs. The spare rib is cut up into (bone-in) bite size pieces and cooked until it is almost falling off the bones.  Yellow onion and green bell peppers are flash fried in the wok to maintain the crispiness and the spare ribs are added back in the wok to soak in all the flavors.  Finally pungent black beans are mixed in to fuse the flavors into a savory brown sauce and served over the chow fun.
