Everyone knows you can make BBQ Baby Back Ribs but have you tried making Asian flavored Baby Back Ribs? Hoisin is one of my favorite Asian flavor combinations – it’s full of sweet and salty flavors that are well balanced and interesting. This recipe combines a base of Hoisin sauce with a few other common ingredients to make ribs that are tender and delicious. This recipe was inspired by the “Hoisinful Nine Dragon Chinese Ribs” recipe that you can find at AmazingRibs.com, a site full of awesome recipes and tips. Let us know what you think of this recipe and your favorite “unconventional” rib recipes!
- 2 slab(s) LGCM Baby Back Ribs
- 2 cup(s) Hoisin Sauce
- .25 cup(s) Vinegar
- .25 cup(s) Orange Juice
- .25 cup(s) Soy Sauce
- 2 Tbsp Hot Sauce (we use Tobasco)
- 2 Tbsp Garlic (but you can use Sriracha or your favorite)
- Sesame Seeds (minced)
Combine hoisin sauce, vinegar, orange juice, soy sauce, hot sauce and minced garlic in a medium sized bowl. Whisk together until combined. Coat both sides of ribs with sauce.
Heat your smoker or grill to 225ºF and set up for indirect cooking. Place a drip pan filled with water in the smoker to help retain moisture in the ribs and add smoke if desired.
Place the ribs on the grill and cook for approximately 4 hours. Brush the ribs with more sauce every hour. The ribs are done when the meat easily pulls off the bone – about 190ºF internal temperature.
Once the ribs are done cooking, remove from grill and let rest. Garnish with sesame seeds, and slice into individual rib serving portions. Serve the ribs with more of the sauce for dipping, rice and steamed veggies. Enjoy!
