  1. Cut apart the spareribs.
  2. Rinse the fermented black beans thoroughly and then mince (not rinsing the beans will make the taste too salty).

  4. Set aside.
  5. Heat the wok over medium-high to high heat and add 2 tablespoons oil.
  6. When the oil is hot, add the spareribs and stir-fry until browned (4 to 5 minutes).
  7. Remove.
  8. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, if needed.
  9. Add the chopped red chile and the mashed bean mixture.
  10. Stir-fry until aromatic.
  11. Add the spareribs back into the wok and mix with the bean mixture.
  12. Add the broth.
  13. Stir in the soy sauce and sugar.
  14. Turn down the heat and braise, covered, until the ribs are tender (about 10 minutes).
