While having my surprise beers, I made a comfort food dish that my Mom makes for us. When she makes it we come flocking to the table like starved children. Generally, the recipe calls for pork spear ribs, but she said that she switched to using boneless meat because my brother is too lazy to eat it bone in. I like it boneless too because I can shovel it in faster. This was my first time making it and thankfully it came out like hers.

brownies to make the apartment warmer.
Mom's Black-Bean Spear Ribs
1lb boneless pork shoulder; cubed2 green bell peppers; cubed2 tbsp black bean sauce2 c water2 tbsp oyster sauce2 tsp corn starch
Directions:Over medium-high heat, brown the pork shoulder with black bean sauce. Once browned, cover with water. Bring to a boil then let simmer until pork is soft. Once pork is soft, in a separate bowl, use some of the cooking liquid to mix the corn starch. When all lumps are out, pour corn starch liquid into the pot to make gravy. Add green bell pepper and oyster sauce. Let cook until bell peppers are soft and the sauce has thickened up. Server over white rice.
