Combine all of the ingredients except the garnish in a large bowl and, using your hands, massage the marinade thoroughly into the ribs. Cover and refrigerate overnight to marinate and tenderise the meat.
Bring a large saucepan or wok of water to the boil.

Position over the pan or wok of boiling water and steam for 25 minutes or until pork is tender, using tongs to turn the pork pieces halfway through the cooking time.
