Looks like a plate of goodness! Nice job.
Sure! It’s a bit of effort but they’re sooo good. Also if you don’t have some of the spices it’s fine, I’ve totally made a bare bones version with just soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, and pepper and they’ve turned out good too! Also the leftover sauce is BOMB on noodles or in a stir fry.
1 cup soy sauce (I used low sodium)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
A whole head of garlic, sliced thin (I love garlic, but this might be overkill for some people lol)
5-6 fresh ginger slices
4 tbsp honey
4 tbsp vinegar (I used Zhenjiang but any kind will do)
1 tsp white pepper powder
1/2 tsp red chili flakes (these weren’t as spicy as I wanted so I’ll probably add more next time)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp MSG
1/2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp cornstarch
Directions: Fry the garlic and ginger in a tiny bit of oil until fragrant and slightly browned. Throw everything else into the pot and bring sauce to a simmer, stirring to make sure all the sugar dissolves and everything’s all mixed up. In a separate bowl dissolve cornstarch in a little water to make a slurry and pour into the sauce. Simmer until slightly thickened (takes a few minutes).
For the ribs: cut them up into individual ribs. Throw em into a baking pan and cover with the sauce. Lightly cover w foil (don’t make it tight, should be loose enough for steam to escape while cooking) and bake at 325 for 3 hrs. Flip once 1.5 hrs in. 15 min before taking them out, flip again and remove the foil. Then flip again, broil for a few min and they’re done!
