Asian Sticky Ribs

Asian Sticky Ribs

It is an absolutely gorgeous May long weekend in Vancouver, having spent the day outside in the yard and at the park. For the rare occasion I even was able to pick up a book for a bit too! The kids and friends are here tonight and I am making one of my favourite summer meals, my yummy Asian sticky ribs. The recipe is simple but what you need is time. This is why I was able to spend 2 hours reading even thought the house will be full shortly.

Asian Sticky Ribs
4 racks of baby back pork ribs
2 cups hoisin
1/2 sup soy sauce
1/4 cup sambal oelek (Vietnamese chili sauce)
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
2″ pieces of ginger grated

Spilt the ribs into 3 pieces each. Heat the grill and bbq on each side for 10 mins or so till golden brown. Place in a parchment lined baking dish. Meanwhile, mix together the rest of the ingredients. Pour over the ribs. Cover with foil and bake in a preheat oven at 300’F for 4 hours. Now drink wine and relax. Remove ribs and cool slightly. If you like you can put them back on the bbq for about 5 mins a side to caramelize the sauce. Serve with a great salad, corn on the cob and tonight we are having homemade mac and cheese. Not to forget the wine paring. I will be serving the Sumac Ridge Gewurztraminer, a steal at under $15/bottle.
