Jamaican Chinese Black Bean Steamed Pork Recipe

This Black Bean Steamed Pork recipe was handed down to me from my father. A true Hakka-style dish that tastes even better the next day. Easy and tasty – even addictive once you’ve tasted it! To give it a Jamaican flavor add a little scotch bonnet pepper.


  • Pork shoulder, butt, leg or belly, with fat retained
  • 1 Sheet salted black bean (new sheet)
  • Ginger
  • Fresh garlic
  • Soy sauce
  • Dried orange peel, soaked (Go Pei)
  • Brown sugar
  • Sherry (optional)
  • Oil for browning
  • Optional – A few slices of scotch bonnet pepper ( include the seeds for more heat)


  1. Season pork with black bean, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, orange peel, brown sugar and sherry , if desired.
  2. Brown in oil to seal in juices
  1. Steam at least 2 hours, or more, until pork tears easily with chopsticks.
  2. Optional – Serve with scotch bonnet slices on top
