Chinese Five-Spice Ribs

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by Battle in Seattle

One of three recipes--also try my Memphis Style Pork Ribs or Kansas City Ribs. Nothing fancy, but folks will rave about these melt-in-your-mouth delights. These are sweet, savory, a bit spicy and have a unique eastern flair.

I didn't use the actual cooking method, but boy was the dry rub fantastic. BF and I totally chowed! This was my first time cooking ribs and I don't think I could've asked for a better recipe to start with. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Mix rub ingredients together well.
  3. Lay the ribs on a rack in a foil-lined pan, and rub all of the spice mix evenly onto both sides of both rib racks.
  4. Bake meat-side-up for 2 hours, or until each rack droops on both sides when picked up with tongs in the middle.
  5. While ribs are baking, whisk together sauce ingredients and set aside until ready to eat.
  6. HINT: Can bake ahead, especially if making for a crowd. To reheat, bake (meat side up) partially covered with foil for 30 minutes at 250°F.
