These Chinese spare ribs are sticky, tender, and delicious, and they're really easy to prepare.
4lbrack pork spareribs
1/4tspchinese five spice powder
3drops liquid smoke
chopped scallionsfor garnish
sesame seedsfor garnish
Whisk to combine the hoisin, ketchup, soy sauce, red wine, garlic, honey, five spice powder, grated ginger, sriracha, and liquid smoke.
Trim any excess fat from the spareribs, and cut into individual ribs. Toss the ribs in the marinade and let sit at room temperature for 90 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cover a rimmed sheet pan with foil, and place a wire rack on top. Place the ribs on the wire rack meat side up (save the marinade), and fill the pan halfway up the sides with boiling water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the ribs.
Cook for 1 hour, basting the ribs on both sides with the leftover marinade ever 20 minutes. Bump the temperature up to 450, and baste again. Cook for 15 minutes until sticky and browned, but watch carefully so they don’t burn. Enjoy!
