Serving Size: Serves 6-8


  • 2 racks of pork spare ribs or baby back ribs
  • Sauce:
  • 1 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger (or garlic-shallot puree)

  3. Baste the ribs on both sides with the sauce.
  4. To barbecue the pork ribs, simply place them on a preheated grill over indirect heat. Keep a close watch on them while they cook, as they can burn quickly.
