Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F with rack in middle. Line a 17- by 12- by 1-inch baking pan with foil.
  2. Purée ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and oil in a blender, then transfer to a bowl and whisk in hoisin sauce and honey. Reserve 1/2 cup sauce and coat ribs with remainder.
  3. Arrange ribs, meaty sides down, in pan and bake, turning and basting once with some of reserved sauce halfway through baking, until cooked through, about 40 minutes.
  4. Turn on broiler. Brush ribs, meaty sides up, with remaining sauce. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat until edges are lightly charred, 4 to 8 minutes.

This was really good! The only changes I made were substituting sesame oil for vegetable oil and adding a tablespoon of toasted sesame seeds when whisking in the honey and hoisin sauce. A definite keeper!

Delicious! I bought ribs at the supermarket, but when I got home I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with them. The recipe sounded good and easy, and it really was. The smell was amazing, and I love the combo of honey and hoisin sauce with pork. The ginger and garlic added to it without being overpowering. My DH's only complaint was that there wasn't anymore! Thanks for sharing!
