I remember eating at Spago in the early 1980s when I was in law school in LA (this was a treat) and I was in my 20s loving every minute of it. Faye Dunaway was waiting in line in front of me to use the ladies room! Anything "Wolfgang Puck" reminds me of that! By the way, I have no memory of what I ate! This recipe requires overnight marination.
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 1 cup sake
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 4 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons fresh garlic, minced
- 6 tablespoons sesame oil
- 3 lbs baby pork ribs, about 2 sides
- In a bowl, mix together the ingredients except for the ribs. Place the ribs in a container large enough to hold them, one slab on top of another, and pour the marinade over the meat. Cover and let it marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
- Preheat the oven to 300°F and pour half the marinade in a baking pan. Add the ribs and bake turning frequently for the next 2 hours or until the meat is tender.
- Under a preheated broiler or on a wood fired grill, glaze ribs for 3-4 minutes per side. Watch carefully to avoid burning.
- Remove ribs and cut each side into individual pieces. Arrange overlapping on plates or on a platter and spoon the warm marinade over the meat.
