Spareribs with Asian Barbecue Sauce
A perfect balance of sweet and savory—with the added kick of garlic and chili sauce—makes these spareribs special. Good party food, just have plenty of napkins on hand!
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
1 green onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon sherry
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons sriracha sauce (Asian hot chili sauce)
1/8 teaspoon orange extract
2 pounds pork spareribs
- Whisk honey, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, tahini, green onion, sherry, garlic, chili sauce and orange extract in a medium bowl. Place spareribs in a glass or stainless steel bowl and pour marinade over the top. Toss until evenly coated. Refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours, turning several times.
- Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
- Drain ribs, reserving marinade. Place ribs on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake for 45 minutes, basting every 15 minutes. Discard marinade at this point. Raise oven temperature to 325°F and bake for 15 more minutes, or until tender and dark golden brown. Serve warm.
