Chinese Style Ribs

These Chinese inspired ribs are a delicious alternative to regular barbeque flavors. Made with hoisin sauce and ginger, they are slow-cooked and tossed with the sauce at the end. Serve with a simple basmati rice tossed with some of the sauce.

2 racks thin pork side ribs
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp Kosher salt
1 tbsp Chinese Five spice
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1/3 cup soy sauce
3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
2 garlic cloves, grated
1 tsp Chinese Five spice

Preheat the oven to 250°F. Line a baking sheet and place a wire rack on it. Mix together the brown sugar, salt and Chinese spice. Rub onto the ribs. Place the ribs on the wire rack and add the water taking care not to remove the rub. Cover with aluminum foil and cook for 2 hours.

In the meantime, prepare the sauce by mixing together the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic and one teaspoon of the Chinese spice. Cook on medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes.

Remove the ribs and cut into individual pieces. Turn up the oven temperature to 350°F. Toss the ribs in the sauce and return the ribs with the sauce to a lined baking tray. Cook for 30 minutes until the sauce becomes thick.

Cook rice according to package directions. Toss with 2 tablespoons of the sauce when serving.

Makes 3 to 4 servings.
