Makes One Full Rack Hoisin-Glazed Barbecue Pork Spare Ribs (about 12 ribs)
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 4 hours
Total Time: 4 hours, 15 minutes
- 1 full rack pork spare ribs
- For the marinade:
- 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
- 6 oz can pineapple juice
- 1 tbsp hot Asian-style chili sauce (optional)
- For the rub:
- 1 tbsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp 5-spice powder
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- pinch of cayenne pepper
- For the glaze:
- 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp Asian fish sauce (optional)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Remove ribs from bag and pat dry with paper towels. Mix together and apply the dry rub all over both sides of the ribs. Roast in oven at 300 degrees for one hour.
Mix all the glaze ingredients in small bowl. After 1 hour, baste the ribs with a brush on both sides and return to the oven. Repeat this basting every 20 minutes for another 3 1/2 hours to build up a nice thick, shiny glaze.
Remove when meat is tender, and cut into serving sizes.
