Hoisin-Honeyed Baby Back Ribs

Serves 4-6


This may be prepared 1 day ahead through step 4, covered and refrigerated.  Remove from the refrigerator 1 hour before grilling.



1/2 cup Hoisin Sauce

1/4 cup honey

2 tablespoons oil

1 scallion, finely chopped

1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

4 pounds pork loin ribs cut Chinese style or baby-back ribs



1.  Combine the Hoisin Sauce, honey, oil, scallion and rice vinegar in a medium bowl and blend well.  Place the ribs in a jumbo plastic sealable bag.  Add the marinade to the ribs and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 24 hours, turning occasionally.  


2.  Preheat the oven to 325 F. 


3.  Place the ribs on a piece of foil large enough to wrap tightly without any holes. Place the package in a large roasting pan and bake for 1 hour. Alternately, place the ribs in a roasting pan and cover well.


4.  Remove the ribs from the oven. Remove the ribs from the foil, drain and reserve the juice and place in a dish.


5.  Prepare the barbecue for medium-heat grilling. Grill the ribs about 3 inches from the flame for 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until they reach the desired doneness, basting occasionally with the remaining marinade, making sure they do not burn. Place on a serving platter and serve with the reserved juices, if desired.
