Chinese Honey Roasted Country Ribs
These honey glazed pork ribs are so good and packed with flavor. The taste of this honey pork rib dish is quite like the one from Chinese BBQ shops. The meat is so succulent and juicy, nearly fallen off the bones.
4 cloves garlic
2 thumb ginger, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup ketchup or tomato puree
4 pounds pork spareribs, left in one or two slabs
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon sesame seed, optional
Step 1: Add garlic and ginger to the ribs. Mix salt; mix with honey, soy sauce, chicken broth, and ketchup or tomato puree or use Chinese bbq sauce or your favorite bbq sauce. Pour mixture over the ribs, refrigerate, and let marinate for several hours or overnight. Turn several times to coat all surfaces.
Step 2: Preheat oven to 450 F. Put spareribs in a foil lined roasting pan with their marinade. Bake 10 minutes at 450 F and then reduce oven temperature to 325 F. Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes longer, or until ribs are tender. Baste occasionally.
Put ribs on a serving platter. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Keep warm in the oven while you thicken sauce; add enough water to the liquid in roasting pan to make 1 cup. Make a paste with the cornstarch and a small amount of water, then blend into the liquid , cooking until thickened and clear. Serve with the spareribs.
