Chinese Barbecued Baby Back Ribs

Based on a recipe from Bon Appetit's March 1989 issue, in the Cooking for Friends, section. Prep and cook times do not include the 4 hours to overnight marination. These could not be easier or more tasty. They do it for me! They're great!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In medium bowl, whisk together first 8 ingredients.
  2. Set ribs in large baking pan. Pour marinade over, turning to coat ribs. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  4. Transfer ribs to a single layer on shallow baking pan. Bake 30 minutes. Turn ribs over and baste with marinade. Bake an additional 35 minutes, or until tender, basting 1/2 way through.
  5. Serve hot.

DH loves ribs and these get the thumbs up! Only a slight change, I increased the ginger to 1 tbsp. Making again this weekend for pot luck dinner. Made for ZWT 6.

My family really wasn't impressed. I thought there was too much hoisin sauce in it and it wasn't baked nearly as much as it should have

Excellent flavor! I marinated the ribs overnight. This was very easy to make and the cook time was right on. I'll make this often. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 6.
