- 1 full rack pork spare ribs
- For the Marinade:
- 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
- 6 ounces pineapple juice
- Optional: 1 tablespoon hot Asian-style chili sauce
- For the Rub:
- 1 tablespoon salt (kosher)
- 1/2 teaspoon 5-spice powder
- 1 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
- For the Glaze:
- 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar (seasoned)
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- Optional: 1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce
Cut rack of ribs in half and place in large sealable freezer bag.
Mix the marinade ingredients in a bowl and pour over the ribs. Marinade for at least 8 hours, or overnight.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Remove ribs from bag and pat dry with paper towels.
Mix together and apply the dry rub all over both sides of the ribs.
Roast in oven at 300 degrees for one hour.
Mix all the glaze ingredients in small bowl. After 1 hour, baste the ribs with a brush on both sides and return to the oven. Repeat this basting every 20 minutes for another 3 1/2 hours to build up a nice thick, shiny glaze.
Remove when meat is tender, and cut into serving sizes.
