READY IN: 1hr 50mins




  • Place the ribs, carrot, celery, onion and thyme in a large pot, cover with water. Bring to a boil and boil for 30 to 45 minutes; drain.
  • While the ribs are precooking, place the soy sauce, mustard, brown sugar, honey, hoisin sauce, tomato paste, ginger and red pepper flakes in a small saucepan. Squeeze the roasted garlic pulp into a small dish, mash and add to the pan stirring to combine. Bring to a low boil and cook until ingredients are well blended and warm, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Remove the ribs from the water, pat dry. Discard the boiling water and vegetables. Place ribs on a roasting pan that has been lined with foil and baste generously with the sauce. For easy release, spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray or use easy release foil.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, place the ribs in the oven and cook until fork tender; about an hour, basting every 15 minutes with the sauce.
