Adapted from Canadian Living Magazine, April 2004

  • Makes: Serves 6.


2 lb (1 kg) pork side or back ribs

1/2 cup hoisin sauce

2 Tbsp rice vinegar

1 Tbsp liquid honey

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 Tbsp. grated fresh gingerroot

big pinch hot pepper flakes

toasted sesame seeds and/or chopped green onions, for garnish (optional)


1Put the ribs on a rimmed baking sheet and cover tightly with foil; bake at 300°F for 2 1/2-3 hours, until tender. (Ribs can be cooked up to this point and then wrapped in foil and refrigerated for up to 3 days.) Meanwhile, stir together the hoisin sauce, vinegar, honey, garlic, ginger and hot pepper flakes.

2Remove the foil, turn the oven up to 425°F, brush the ribs with sauce and roast for another 10 minutes, until dark and sticky. (Alternatively, you could finish them on the grill over high heat for a few minutes.) Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions.
